Revising a LOOKUP formula finding last match to ignore rows if column K contains either of two values ("No Change" or "CX'd")

Posted on 2016-09-23

I am currently using the following LOOKUP formula in spreadsheet EE_Pub (columns N, O and P) to find 'last match' values in spreadsheet EE_Cat (columns J, K and L), unless the value in column K of EE_Cat spreadsheet = "No Change", in which case it ignores this row.

=IFERROR(LOOKUP(2,1/([EE_Cat.xlsx]Sheet1!$I$2:$I$1200=$M2)/([EE_Cat.xlsx]Sheet1!$K$2:$K$1200<>"No Change"),[EE_Cat.xlsx]Sheet1!$J$2:$J$1200),"")

I need to add an additional criteria to this formula so that it ignores all rows where column K in EE_Cat spreadsheet = "No Change" or "CX'd"

I have provided the two sample spreadsheets. I have highlighted the cells and included comments on the EE_Pub spreadsheet containing the results I am looking for with the updated formula.

I hope I have provided sufficient information, and that it is clear enough...

Try this
=IFERROR(LOOKUP(2,1/([EE_Cat.xlsx]Sheet1!$I$2:$I$1200=$M3)/([EE_Cat.xlsx]Sheet1!$K$2:$K$1200<>"CX'd")/([EE_Cat.xlsx]Sheet1!$K$2:$K$1200<>"No Change"),[EE_Cat.xlsx]Sheet1!$J$2:$J$1200),"")
