I am trying to do an excel index match vs vlookup equation. I have a spreadsheet of logs for recording sessions. I want to consolidate the musicians so there is only one entry for each musician, but it lists all the hours they have spent in the recording studio.

In cell B3 insert a nested MATCH function within an INDEX function that will look up the rental price in column D using the apartment number referenced in cell B2. With 101 entered in cell B2, the lookup function displays $950.00.

The accompanying dataset contains six years of quarterly sales from your store. You would like to forecast future sales as way to inform you as you make staffing and budgeting plans. Please answer all of the following questions. The dataset can be found here. For numerical questions, answer with 4 digits to the right of the decimal. Statistically test at the alpha=0.05 statistical significance level whether or not there exists a linear trend in the time series data. What is the p-value of your statistical test? Based on your answer to the question above, can you conclude that a linear trend exists in this time series data (Y or N)? ===== Regardless of you answer above, create a multiple linear regression model that captures both linear trend and additive seasonality. You should use Q4 as your base season and fit the model with all 24 data points. All of the independent variables are statistically significant at the alpha=0.01 level (Y or N). Which quarter (1, 2, 3, or 4) has the largest sales on average? Which quarter (1, 2, 3, or 4) has the smallest sales on average? What is the value of the Adjusted R-squared? Using this multiple linear regression model, what is the value of the MAPE? (Please report it as a percentage with 4 digits to the right of the decimal and no percentage sign.) Using this multiple linear regression model, forecast each quarter for the next year (2016). What is the forecast for Q3? Carefully explain the how to interpret the value of the estimated coefficient on the time period index. Carefully explain the how to interpret the value of the estimated coefficient on the variable representing quarter one. ===== Using the same dataset as before, you now would like to add an exogenous variable as a possible explanatory variable to the model. This variable is in the column labeled ‘Ads – Lag 1’. This variable represents the number of advertising campaigns ran the previous quarter. (The thought is that the ads run last quarter affect the current quarter’s sales.) Calculate the correlation coefficient between the variables ‘Ads – Lag 1’ and ‘Sales’. What is its value? Continuing with this thought, now create a multiple linear regression model that captures both linear trend and additive seasonality. You should use Q4 as your base season and fit the model with all 24 data points. Additionally, add the variable ‘Ads – Lag 1` as an independent variable. Is the variable ‘Ads – Lag 1` statistically significant at the alpha=0.05 level (Y or N)? What is the value of the Adjusted R-squared value? 0.4699 Using this multiple linear regression model that captures trend and additive seasonality and the additional independent variable for advertising, what is the value of the MAPE? (Please report it as a percentage with 4 digits to the right of the decimal and no percentage sign.) Using only the data that you have been given, can you make forecasts for the year 2016 using this model (Y or N)? If your answer was “Y” above, then what is the forecast for Q1 of 2016. If it was “N”, explain why not.

My excel file is returning #REF error after clicking a userform. This is because the userform query is not executing index match query correctly. But I am unable figure out how to change it to do the index match formula correctly. It's a macro file.

Hi. This is quite hard to explain but hopefully the document will help! I have a s/sheet looking at a five year replacement plan for their PCs. I have a list of Locations (Labs) in a uni that contains the number of machines, how much it will cost to replace and a year that (1-5). At the moment they were populated manually. But if they decide they want to change, for example Lab B from the first year to the 3rd, it then needs to be done manually. What I'd like to be able to do, is, if the year is changed in column E, then the boxes / fields to the right get updated. I know I can do this with multiple pivot tables, but know that it could also be done with formulas. In G5 for Year 1, I have used the Index and Match functions to return Lab B. I'm guessing I might need OFFSET, (which I don't know much about as yet) but before I went ahead and researched it all, thought I would ask. Current formula (in G5) here is: =INDEX($B:$B,MATCH(1,$E:$E,0)) Thank you.

In the Shop loading sheet, I lookup the calendar sheet and where it finds a match ( Q???? numbers) , I want the formals to lookup the count down sheet and match the respective hours, but I only want the. when the formula finds a match. When it finds a match I want it to always start in the first match column and thereafter index.

Hi, I made up a job list with a montly calendar from a template and an annual calendar. My job list is automaticly inserted in both calendars with an index. I would like to had a frequency to my calendar. In other words, I would like to make a job happen every X week. I added the row in my pivot table, but I can't figure it out how to make it to my calendar. Thanks

1 tab houses job titles and status; create a separate tab that based on drop list (by department) the following statuses would populate/change when selecting different departments - # open, # cleared to start, # in progress -- by department. Have tried INDEX, MATCH and COUNTIF but does not work.
