Dates and look ups?

Hi All,

I am hoping to look up some data from another worksheet which changes as today's date changes.

So for example, if it is June, I want it to look up the data that shows for June. If it is July today, I want it to look up the data only from July in my spreadsheet etc etc.

This is my current formula =VLOOKUP(D5,$B$25:$C$39,2,FALSE). This is before I wanted it to show the same month as we are currently in

Any help would be much appreciated

Excel Facts

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.
Is your June data in a single cell? Or, are there a range of cells with values for June (and you essentially want to pull everything from June)?

If it's the former, try:
=vlookup(month(today()),$b$25....)

Depending on how your dates are formatted, maybe:
=vlookup(text(today(),"mmm"),$b$25...)

With sample data, we could give a more accurate formula.

The June data is in a single cell.

Basically, I collate a list of data in one worksheet that has month in one column, then the numbers in the next column.

My boss only wants to see the numbers for the relevant month which will be viewed on a seperate worksheet.

Does this make sense?

Not sure if Jun-12 is text or just formatting,but if is formatting try this:

You could add another column and make it a month only column, or use index(match())

=index($b$25:$c:$39,match(month(today()),month($b$25:$b$39),0),2)

Try that, if it gives you an error then try it as an array (hit ctrl+shift+enter)

NOTE*** Today() is only in excel 2007 or 2010

This is what I have. Is there an easy way to do what I want? That previous post has confused the hell out of me ;o)

ok, this returns data as long as it is an exact date but I want it to look up any date in the current month?

=VLOOKUP(A1,D4:E19,2,FALSE)
