HLOOKUP "in reverse"
I'm looking for a function (or possible build a formula) that will find a particular value in an array, and return the value at the top of the array in the same column. I have a signup sheet for one of three workshops offered at a particular time. The top row is the title of each workshop, and users are filling in there names in each column. I would like to automate the creation of agendas for each person by having the formula find each users name, and then returning the title of the workshop at the top of that column.

Using Countif across multiple sheets
Is it possible to use countif across multiple sheets to weed out duplicates?

I have a database of names and twitter handles spread onto 3 sheets and for the sake of this post I cannot merge them all into 1 sheet and I don't want to use any scripts / add-on's (the add-on I was using works fine, but it doesn't update itself. I have to re-run it every time I make a new entry to check if I am duplicating something that is on one of the other 3 pages)

I currently have countif forumulas that highlight duplicates within single columns on individual sheets. So on 'Sheet 1' in Column A I can see duplicates that are in 'Sheet 1' Column A, but I cannot see if there are any duplicates between 'Sheet 1' Column A and 'Sheet 2' Column A.
I did not use the COUNTIF() function ... in the following is a solution
using MATCH() function

New Conditional Formatting option - Custom formula is
Hi Yogi,

This isn't exactly the problem I'm having. I've created a sheet with example data to show my problem more clearly: 

Thank you for all you do to support this community Yogi!


My problem is with conditional formatting, not a specific formula. I'm sorry I'm not explaining this very well. 

Cell G7 of Sheet 1 on this sheet contains an example as well as a description of my problem:
formatting of a cell can not be used as a creiterion for Conditional Formatting in a formula based approach -- do have a look at my use of INT() function to meet the intent of your inquiry

Formula to seek repeated values
hi, i want to make a formula to seek repepated values on a single column, and anotate them on another one as a counter.

for example.

on a column, i want to know how many times Each name is repeated, and make another column called "counter" wich contains the total number of the value repetitions, im doing this to count bans. For example:

Column A  Column B (Counter)

asd                           1
asd                           2
dea                           1
ad                             1
asd                           3

is it posible to do that? that a formula automatically detects the number of repetitions and continues adding them?

would be thankfull for an answer

Conditional Formatting based on 2 Lists

I was wondering if someone could help me with the following Problem: 

I have 2 lists in Sheets: 

Column A - This has a list of Clients 
Column B - This has a list of PREFERRED Clients

I want to draw attention to values in Column A based on the preset values in column B. 

Is there a single conditional formatting formula that can highlight All values in Column A that are present in Column B as well? 

Thank you :) 
I created a sample sheet here:

Unfortunately the Countif solution did not work :( 

Would conditional formatting still work if the validation data is located on another sheet?

Calculate total correct answers over a range

I want to tally the total correct answers for each form submission.

Currently the second row (A2:CS2) has the model answers. So I'll compare new submissions to this row.

I am currently using the formula below in column CT to get the desired result.


So a correct answer scores 1 and a wrong answer scores 0 and those are added up.

Is there a more concise way of doing this?

Thank in advance,

yogi_Apply Conditional Formatting In Column D To Highlight Entries That Match Upto 7th Decimal Place

Hi Yogi,
I'm wondering if you can help with the issue I've been having in this post:
New google sheets changes rounding procedure?
I'm trying to use conditional formatting based on a minimal decimal addition to cue formatting. For example: 10 turns green when a formula adds .0005858. Conditional formatting looks for 5858, and thus turns green when it finds the value in the decimal place.

The problem I'm having is in the new google sheets. This feature does not seem to work because of a new automatic rounding format for numbers. As I change the amount of decimal places displayed, rather than just displaying a larger or smaller amount of VISIBLE decimal places, the actual VALUE of my cell is changed. .0005858 starts rounding up to .000586 and then to .00059, .0006 etc. The conditional formatting sees .0006 instead of the real value of .0005858. By the time I get to the desired result of no decimals, I've lost formatting. 

 This causes quite a problem because I don't want to have to display 10 decimal places on my spreadsheet. Anyone have ideas?

Combining pages into a single sheet
Hi all,

I've got a sheet with three pages, two of which are populated by (separate) forms. Both forms collect information about the same thing, but one collects less than the other. Form B's fields are all also contained in Form A, but not vice versa.

I would like to be able to combine the two sets of results into one sheet.

Table 1:
  A      B    C
1 David  32   M2 Tom    24   M3 Sarah  27   FTable 2:
  A      B
1 Alan   32
2 Suzi   25
3 Claire 31
Table 3:
  A      B    C1 David  32   M2 Tom    24   M3 Sarah  27   F4 Alan   32
5 Suzi   25
6 Claire 31

Table 3 above is the target. Is this possible?
Hi Ivanna, thanks for the effort you're making trying to help me. I clearly haven't effectively communicated the problem to begin with, so I'll try again.

The problem isn't just that the two sheets have different numbers of columns, but that the columns that do match are in a different order. My example did not reflect this. This is the first few columns from the actual sheets:

Sheet ATC:

Timestamp  |Callsign (if applicable)  |Aircraft registration  |Aircraft type              |Type of flight
Sheet Users:
Timestamp  |Captain                   |Aircraft operator      |Callsign (if applicable)   |Aircraft registration

There is some commonality between the two, but this out-of-step order is typical of the whole thing. Clearly if I just lump the rows of ATC and Users together, the result will be a meaningless mess.

Presenting it this way makes me think it was ridiculous to even ask whether a formula could reorganise these with any efficiency. I think the best thing is to use one of your earlier formulas, and just put blocking columns in the 'smaller' sheet so that the columns will line up once they're combined?
I don't see Ivanna around at the moment, so allow me to suggest that you the solution I have proposed in the following:
