Hello,

I have a list that contains sales data that I download from SAP. It’s just like what’s posted except the actual list is much longer. The list is in numerical order as well. I can get VLOOKUP to find the Area number and rep name but I also want to get (separately) the product category 1,2,3 & Misc $ totals as well. I am stumped on what to use with VLOOKUP (MATCH?) to get these $ totals. Perhaps VLOOKUP isn’t the right function to use either. Any Ideas ?

Thanks in Advance.

Try this, it should return the rep name and the Cat1,Cat2,&Cat3 values:

=INDEX(A:J,MATCH("01 Smith",A:A,0),1)
=INDEX(A:J,MATCH("01 Smith",A:A,0)+2,4)
=INDEX(A:J,MATCH("01 Smith",A:A,0)+2,5)
=INDEX(A:J,MATCH("01 Smith",A:A,0)+2,6)

It does assume that the offset rows and columns are the same for each rep.

i'd use a pivot table.

First you need to fill in an entry in every row in the 1st column, but you can do that quickly.

Select column a down to the bottom of your data, press F5 to bring up the goto box.
Select blanks
Type = and then the up arrow key to point to the cell above

Then press ctrl and enter to fill in all the blanks
Select the entire row, then copy then paste special values, to replace all the formulas with hard data.

Then create your pivot table, using the page field as your selector

DougT & GorD,

Many thanks for your help.
I think one or the other of your solutions will work nicely... need to play around with both.
