Excel/Usiusing two criteria to return a value from a table
Hi, I have a table with my work hours and shift type. Like this A=date b=clock in c=clock out d=shift type. In another table I would like to calc my salery.
A B C D
1 01.12.2012 08:00 16:00 LA
2 03.12.2012 16:00 23:00 UL
A B C D
1 01.12.2012 08:00 16:00 $xxxx
3 03.12.2012 16:00 23:00 $xxxx
Looking for a formal that will populate B and C in table salery if I have work that day and if shift is LA or UL
Right now I am using for B1 =INDEX(indata!B1:B13,MATCH(1,(indata!A3:A13=A1)*(indata!D1:D13="LA"),0))
But I am not geting shift UL.
1) How can I get my UL shift to my table?
2) If in the future I get a new shift type like XL. How can I get this shift in my table without change my formal?
PS I was thinking of having a list of valid shift types
Hope you understand my problem and have a easy solution
Extra) Your formula has an error...it should be indata!A1:A13=A1. Maybe that is just a typo?
1) You need to change the part that says indata!D1:D13="LA"to indata!D1:D13="UL" in order to return shift UL.
2) In order to eliminate the need to change the formula you would have to have the shift type also appear in the Table Salary sheet, perhaps in column E. Then, instead of indata!D1:D13="LA", you would use indata!D1:D13=E1
I suspect you may not be the author of the formula listed above... and that you have actually tried to change LA to UL and it didn't work #it reported #N/A#. The above is an array formula, and when being entered, it must be confirmed with CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER instead of simply ENTER.
