convert vlookup to access
I have an Excel formula that I need to convert to Access 2007:

=IF(F8="Active",IF(AND(C8<>"None",C8<>"COM"),VLOOK UP(N8,AQ6:AV11,L8+1,FALSE ),IF(C8="COM",VLOOKUP(J8,AX7:AY11,2,),"Error")),"N ull")

The vlookup looks to this:
AQ6:AV11
AX7:AY11

The cell references like C8,N8 are values in the first column of the vlookup fields. This is for a ratings table.

It took me a while to figure out vlookup and it's real cool, but not in Access. I know I would have to use VBA to reproduce this, but umh not brainy enough


How to use vlookup to find your criteria?
I need want to use the vlookup function in Access 2010 when creating a query. I am doing this as an expression in design view of my query.

to first, ask what state I am looking for (I have put this in the criteria box of the field "[State]"), then search anothertable (I have it created already, it is a list of the states) for that state and plug the cell with the name of that state into this new query cell.

How can you do this?


Simple VLookup function in Access
I would like to know how to write a query to run a simple vlookup functions between these two:

Tabel1 : has 200,000 rows of data. Has the fields to be looked up- "Serial_Number" and "Ship_Date"

Table2: has the field :"Serial_No"

I want table3 to Lookup Serial_No (tabel2) in the Serial_Number in table1 and return the corresponding row value of Ship_Date


When uses Vlookup
I have imported lots of data into multiple tables in Access. For each line item, I have a Sale Date. Our Sales Dates need to be organized by a predetermined Week Number and Period Number. I have an excel file with a list of each date for the year with what Week it falls in, as well as what Period. How can I add this to Access for a new column with all my data, and then when new data comes in each data, it assigns it automatically.

Would I use Vlookup?

FYI- there is no way I can export this data into excel and use vlookup and reimport, I have over 1 million rows of data.


Query to work as a Vlookup function
Given:
One table with following fields:
System, Component, Anomaly number, Status, Priority.

I have a form with first two fields as system and component. You can select each with from drop down menus.

Question:
I would like to create more fields in this form, where I can choose system and component and display anomaly numbers associated to them and their respective status and priority.

I can do this in excel using VLOOKUP. Tried using DLOOKUP in access but cannot get it to work.

Please help. Also, I am newbie using Access, so keep that in mind if you find my question to be very basic

Query with Vlookup formula
I am new with access and I would like to make a question to see if it is possible to create a query that contains the a formula similar to the vlookup formula in excel.
I have to create a data base with three different tables that include different information from the same people, so then I would like to create a query to see if the same people is included effectively in the others tables or not. If I have to do this excel I would use the vlookup, however I need to do this in acess because based on this information there will be several actions to take from that point.


Excel VLookup vs Access IIF statement
I have an excel formula that I used a VLookup to calculate the Fiscal Year(FY) of a signed document. I changed it to an IIF statement for Access but the Query won't accept it as an expression because of it's size. Is there another way to accomplish this?


understanding excel for access purposes
I need to make a form in access related to the records from excel. I need the operations to be exactly the same from excel so I could convert the calculations in ms access. but I don't know what this means? =(IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(G12,$AI$9:$AJ$10, 2, 0)),0,VLOOKUP(G12,$AI$9:$AJ$10, 2, 0))) it's from one of the calculations in excel. I just want to understand what the logic is about. any help would do

Translations
and I suspect that there is a very simple answer to my problem:

I receive about a dozen reports from different companies, all of them in their own format. Up until now, I have been using excel's vlookup function to convert their codes unto my codes. For example, they might designate a value of RNWL which in our system is RWL.

I think I am supposed to be using the dlookup function - can't make it work, though. is there a simpler way to do it


Access equiv to the vLookup in a Query
How do I perform a lookup in a query?

Essentially I am wanting to perform what in excel would be a vlookup function where I pull the information from one query and put it into another query using the date as the lookup criteria.

Eg: Query 1 has the information and Query 2 is where I want to put it.

Qry 1
Date Value
19 May 2010 996.00
21 June 2010 1101.01
31 August 2010 701.03

Now in Query 2 I want to perform the lookup so the result will look like this

Qry2
Date Value
20 June 2010 996.00
21 June 2010 1101.01
22 June 2010 1101.01


General Question about VLOOKUP equivalent in access
with a general concept. I am more of an Excel guy, so I probably don't know the correct terms for Access

I want to be able to click on the data that someone else has entered into a form for more details.

The form is a detail form for forecasting opportunities, and one field is to select a registration name from the registration table.

I want to be able to click on this name, and have all the lines in the registration table that have the same name open in a form. (I have a form that shows ALL registrations, so I just want to filter it to match the entry)

In excel, this can be done with a vlookup. How can I do it in Access? If I can get a general direction I can research myself!

Please note, the name in the registration table is an index but NOT the primary, and several lines may have the same title


Vlookup equivalent in Access?
I have 2 tables:
Table 1 has 10 fields: Account ID, Employee ID, etc
Table 2 has 3 fields: Account ID, Employee ID, Commission Date

Both tables have the same Account ID and Employee ID information.

What I want to do is I want to pull Commission Date information from Table 2 and put it on Table 1. The data on Commission Date will vary depending on Account ID and Employee ID.

If this is in Excel, I can always use vlookup. But I am currently on Access and I have never used Access before.

I would also need to do this every month so I think I would need to use a type of programming language (like a macro) that would automate this.

Vlookup in Access with SQL
I'm trying to do a vlookup in access using sql and I need some help for an issue that's been giving me headaches and I'll try to explain as best as I can without confusing you.

Table A contains the fields that I'm trying to use for the vlookups. The fields are as follows

Table B is the table that I want to update based on the fields from Table A

My current to update the DEPTID in table B is:

[CODE]

That works fine for most of the sql queries. However, there will be some times when the "Src_Acc" does not exist in that column. In that instance, I want it the query to return the lastDEPTID with the blank "Src_Acc" when it cannot find the account in that column.


Getting rid of the ' in query results
I have what I hope is a rather simple problem. I have an Excel spreadsheet which imports data from Access through a query. It has taken me a while but I finally worked out that the reason I can't do a vlookup on the resulting sheet is that a ' character precedes the result in the cells I am interested in. So, for example, I want to look for a year (2009) if I wanted to do a vlookup on this in the results of the query I would have to look for '2009 and not just 2009. In the excel spreadsheet I cannot actually see the ' character in the cell but it is there!

Is there a trick for either stopping these characters being returned by the query or some way of stripping them out of the results


simple address db question
I know in the back of my mind I know how to do this but.

when I select the suburb in the lookup field I need the table to automatically update the postcode and state field from the lookup table - like a vlookup function in excel

Linking Excel Into Access Issue
I am using Acc 2003, but Acc 2007 should work the same (I think).

I have linked an excel spreadsheet into my Access database. Almost all of the fields are available and can be read.

There are a few fields that I can see in Access, but its in Excel sheet. These fields were using a VLookUp function in excel to get the value from another excel worksheet.

Also the linked excel sheet has fields that I believe should be text (in Access), but its was set to be a number. I am unable to change this.

Is there a way to resolve this issue for me ?

I also assume that if I was to read each cell in the excel sheet and convert it into text files using VBA code, that should resolve the issue.
