# Setting Value In One Cell Based On Another

#### Girac

##### New Member
Hi all,
I need a macro to set the value of cell E\$ based on the LIKE VALUE of V\$.

Example, V\$ are product codes follow the convention of:
"Prod group, *, 4-6 digits (1234 are an example)"
"2*1234" = Prod group1
"3*1234" = Prod group2
"4*1234" = Prod group3

I need to set the value of cell E\$ to "Prod group1, Prod group2, Prod group3" based on the above example:

I looked at the RANGE function but that isnt working for me.
Can anyone assist in this,

TIA

If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

Hi,

Maybe a VLookup:
Book2
EFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
2Product Group 12*12342Product Group 1
3Product Group 34*98763Product Group 2
4Product Group 23*135794Product Group 3
5
6
7
Sheet1

formula in E2 is =VLOOKUP(LEFT(V2,FIND("*",V2)-1)+0,X:Y,2,FALSE)
note the lookup table in X2:Y4
