Press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to enter array formulas.


Above is what I am using currently.
Searching with one criteria; the invoice number.

Is it possible to search using two criteria? (invoice number + vendor number)
The tricky part is that there are duplicate values in column L for a given invoice.
If possible, it should look something like the below.

Excel Facts

What is =ROMAN(40) in Excel?
The Roman numeral for 40 is XL. Bill "MrExcel" Jelen's 40th book was called MrExcel XL.

danhendo888, I have full free Power Query Classes at YouTube. From Basics to hard core M Code. The MSPTDA class I teach is advanced, but if you study videos #3 - 12, it is most of what you need to know about Power Query, including videos, pdf notes (free book), Excel and Power BI files, and even practice problems: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLrRPvpgDmw0ks5W7U5NmDCU2ydSnNZA_1

Leave a comment below each video as you are watching and have fun learning : )

I will check out the Power Query classes over the weekend, should be fun.

Regarding cell B16 in your EMT1575 excel file. You use $B$5:$B$11+$C$5:$C$11 in the FREQUENCY function.
This works for invoice numbers that are just numbers.
With invoices numbers that have text in them like:

NZXA0003617
02146433P1806
39979-2

Can we tweak our formula OR would we need to extract the numbers from the text and THEN proceed as normal?

Those video are not just light weekend reading : ( Video #9 alone would take the whole weekend, as it is about a lot of the nuts and bolts of M Code. For # 9 video, I think the pdf notes are 40 pages. The reason this class is not like the basics videos of cleaning and loading is because there is A LOT to learn and learning new things takes time. But if you want to learn, it is there for you for free, danhendo888 : )

danhendo88, for text maybe these:

Formula in cell B16: =SUM(--(FREQUENCY(MATCH($B$5:$B$11&$C$5:$C$11,$B$5:$B$11&$C$5:$C$11,0),ROW($B$5:$B$11)-ROW($B$4))>0))

Formula in cell B19: =IF(ROWS(B$19:B19)>$B$16,"",INDEX(B$5:B$11,AGGREGATE(15,6,(ROW($B$5:$B$11)-ROW($B$4))/(FREQUENCY(MATCH($B$5:$B$11&$C$5:$C$11,$B$5:$B$11&$C$5:$C$11,0),ROW($B$5:$B$11)-ROW($B$4))>0),ROWS(B$19:B19))))

Formula in cell D19: =IF(C19="","",SUM(--(FREQUENCY(IF(($B$5:$B$11=$B19)*($C$5:$C$11=$C19),$D$5:$D$11),IF(($B$5:$B$11=$B19)*($C$5:$C$11=$C19),$D$5:$D$11))>0)))

Formula in cell E19: =IF(OR($D19="",COLUMNS($E19:E19)>$D19),"",INDEX($D$5:$D$11,SMALL(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(($B$5:$B$11=$B19)*($C$5:$C$11=$C19),MATCH($D$5:$D$11,$D$5:$D$11,0)),ROW($D$5:$D$11)-ROW($D$4)),ROW($D$5:$D$11)-ROW($D$4)),COLUMNS($E19:E19))))

here is a video for this case: Video


Sandy,

Thanks for sharing. Cool!

I did exactly the same, but after adding the custom column with the formula (= List.Distinct ...) and loading, I got the result below immediately (the last steps were not necessary).


A
B
C
D

Vendor​
Invoice​
Contagem​
Reference​

8
1000010035​
2216706​
Table​
8190000022​

<tbody>
</tbody>



In Excel I deleted the "Contagem" column and ... bingo!

Is there a problem deleting the "Contagem" column (Count in English)?

You do not need to remove column (s) with Tables because these columns will not load into the worksheet.

You mean you didn't expand column with List ? or I am stupid :(

Well, in my case the column was loaded ...

8190052331, 8190000001​
1000010035​
2216706​
Table​
8190000022​

<tbody>
</tbody>


(I deleted manually the square brackets around [Table] because I could not paste correctly the table with them)
