# Excel Lookup Question #999

Okay I have another sophisticated lookup question I need to get some help with...

I have an XLS with multiple tabs

I am working from a tab called all deals which has a column "C" called account name
I also have a tab called mapping which has column "A" called account name

I need a formula that is copy the contents of mapping:C into all deals:L when mapping:A = all deals:C

In Sheet All Deals, Column L, insert formula

=INDEX(Mapping!C:C,MATCH('All Deals'!C2,Mapping!A:A,0))

Copy it down the area you need.

Ok, which row is your data sitting on the All Deals sheet?

You see the C2 in the formula? You have to change that to which ever cell the Account Name starts.

I tried =IFERROR((INDEX(mapping!\$C:\$C,MATCH(C4,mapping!\$A:\$A,0))&"")+0,"")

with no luck

All deals starts row 3

Okay I had the row, off...  It appears to work but how can I get rid of the #N/A

If all deals starts on row 3.

The formula should sit on L3. =INDEX(Mapping!C:C,MATCH('All Deals'!C3,Mapping!A:A,0))

What the formula does is Look for the value of C3 of All Deals sheet in the Column A of Mapping sheet, and return the Column C value of Mapping sheet.

Good to hear it works.

The reason for #N/A is because the value in column C of All Deals sheet is not in Column A of Mapping sheet.

It really depends on how to want to deal with those.

If you don't want to show anything if the value in Column C is not found.
Excel 2003 / Excel 2007
=IF(ISERROR(INDEX(Mapping!C:C,MATCH('All Deals'!C3,Mapping!A:A,0))),"",INDEX(Mapping!C:C,MATCH('All Deals'!C3,Mapping!A:A,0)))

Excel 2010
=Iferror(INDEX(Mapping!C:C,MATCH('All Deals'!C3,Mapping!A:A,0)),"")

Fot Info Only, IFERROR is available in Excel 2007 onwards. Only up to 2003 do you have to use IF(ISERROR(...
