Using VLOOKUP to look up a value in multiple arrays simultaneously

Using VLOOKUP to look up a value in multiple arrays simultaneously

March 16, 2018

If you want to look up a value in multiple arrays on a worksheet using one formula you can use VLOOKUP in conjunction with IFERROR.    Enclose all of the VLOOKUP searches entered in the formula in IFERROR, except for the final VLOOKUP.   In the below example, we look for one value in A1 in four different arrays:

 

columns D to F - Brooklyn Dodgers playing in the World Series in 1952

columns H to J - Brooklyn Dodgers playing in the World Series in 1953

columns L to N - Brooklyn Dodgers playing in the World Series in 1955

columns P to R - Brooklyn Dodgers playing in the World Series in 1956

 

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,D:F,2,FALSE),IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,H:J,2,FALSE),IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,L:N,2,FALSE),VLOOKUP(A1,P:R,2,FALSE))))

 

The formula tells use that Sal Maglie first played for Brooklyn in the 1956 World Series.
