Need a formula in excel

Hi, I have an excel file like below.
SV_plates	Row	Col	IDs	sample
SVI_01	A	1	1045	010-006P
SVI_01	B	1	1270	032-006
SVI_01	C	1	1274	034-014P
SVI_01	D	1	1276	035-016B
SVI_01	E	1	1277	038-022
SVI_01	F	1	1278	045-012
SVI_01	G	1	1282	047-011P

Open in new window

I want to add one column which is the value in the first column respectively. The condition is the cell value in 5th column matchs the value in the 4th column.

Thanks.

I'm not entirely sure what you need. Could you specify what result you expect in the new column on each row?

Look at this
SVII_31	G	4	3291	1234
SVI_03	F	10	3965	3291	SVII_31

Open in new window

3291 matchs , then return "SVII_31"

More explaintion:
In the above example, Cell E2 value is "3291", then we search D1:D65536, find D1="3291", then we add A1="SVII_31" to the new column. If not found, then noing added or add "NA" something.

I have added a formula which is going to match if column E=D then put A otherwise put N/A.

Is this what you want?
If not could you clarify more please. If you can give an example from the sheet itself it will be better.

No. Your formula is
=IF(E2=D2,A2,"N/A")

Open in new window

I want to search entire column D to lookup any cell's value match E2, Than I copy the formula accross the sheet. I guess we need to use vlookup or match.

In this example, it should nothing found. For example, Sample=10037, search column D, not found at all. But you just return a "SVI_01". It is incorrect.

And I want when copy the formula, the scope is from row 2 to the end. Currently it is dynamically changed.
=IF(ISERROR(LOOKUP(E16,D16:D813,A16:A813)),"N/A",A16)

Hi

I have just made macro to update all the rows whenever you change the worksheet

There didnt seem to be many matches. I altered your data a bit to test it and it seems to work

You will have to enable macros for this to work.

Best Regards
