[SOLVED] Excel Hlookup Function

Use the HLOOKUP function in cell H9 to calculate the product pricing based on the color and quantity of the billboards ordered. Product pricing can be referenced on the "Product Pricing" lookup table (range O9:Q18). Be sure to use appropriate relative and absolute cell references

Here is the Excel HyperLink, click over the tabs to "lookup functions", you will find where i'm struggling under cell h9 price.

What I have Which is wrong:


D9 lookup value refers to #shipped

I have no problem with vlookup but i'm struggling to put in the lookup value and row index number in the right spot for hlookup.

OK, here is the formula you are looking to put into H9.

=HLOOKUP(C9, $P$9:$Q$18, MATCH(D9, $O$9:$O$18), FALSE)

The HLOOKUP function provides the column (P ro Q) to retrieve the data from by looking for an exact match of the value in C9 against P9:Q9 (the first row in $P$9:$Q$18).

The MATCH function provides which row to retrieve by looking up C9 in O9:O18. This is an approximate match so the values in O9:O18 need to be sorted in ascending order which they are. You want an approximate match because if you have more than 10 (the max in the table), you want it to return the value for 10 and not an error.

So with the row and the column, you are returning the correct value from O9:Q18. Fill down as necessary.

You do have a problem with # Shipped being 1. Either you can cover for quantities greater than 10 or less than 2 but not both. Probably better just to add an entry for a quantity of 1.


You will want to familiarize yourself with the IFERROR function to provide error control.

With your lookup table in O9:O18, with the # Shipped starting at 2, you could also shortcut this to,

=HLOOKUP(C9, $P$9:$Q$18, D9, FALSE)

But that not does cover quantities greater than 10 or a quantity of 1 so it is a bit of a step backwards.

I have a range of date (A1:CY7026) with a column for start dates. this column has a large amount of repeated dates within it. i need these dates group together based on the working week they are located in (eg. all values reading 16/7/18 - 22/07/18 would be one group and the following week would make up another).
