## How to vlookup between two dates and return corresponding value in Excel?

Supposing you have a report of some projects schedule, now, you want to get the specific project of a given time which is between two given dates of the schedule. Take the following screenshot data for example, I would like to look up the given date 12/1/2019, if this date falls between the start dates and end dates within the report, then return its corresponding project name. This article, I will introduce the LOOKUP function to deal with this problem.

#### Vlookup between two dates and return corresponding value with formulas

To get the relative value on which date falls between two dates, the below Lookup formula may help you. Please do as this:

1. Enter the below formula into a blank cell where you want to place the result:

=LOOKUP(2,1/(\$B\$2:\$B\$8<=E2)/(\$C\$2:\$C\$8>=E2),\$A\$2:\$A\$8)

Note: In the above formua:

• B2:B8 is the range of start dates and C2:C8 is the end date range in your table;
• the E2 is the given date which you want to get its corresponding value.

2. And then, drag the fill handle down to the cells to get the result you need. See screenshot:

Notes:

• If the date doesn’t exist, you will get an error value after typing this formula.
• Here is another simple formula that also helps you:=LOOKUP(E2,\$B\$2:\$C\$8,\$A\$2:\$A\$8).

• In excel, we can easily apply the vlookup function to return the matching values in a single table of a worksheet. But, have you ever considered that how to vlookup value across multiple worksheet? Supposing I have the following three worksheets with range of data, and now, I want to get part of the corresponding values based on the criteria from these three worksheets.
• Use Vlookup Exact And Approximate Match In Excel
• In Excel, vlookup is one of the most important functions for us to search a value in the left-most column of the table and return the value in the same row of the range. But, do you apply the vlookup function successfully in Excel? This article, I will talk about how to use the vlookup function in Excel.
• Vlookup Matching Value From Bottom To Top In Excel
• Normally, the Vlookup function can help you to find the data from top to bottom to get the first matching value from the list. But, sometimes, you need to vlookup from bottom to top to extract the last corresponding value. Do you have any good ideas to deal with this task in Excel?
• Vlookup Values From Right To Left In Excel
• Vlookup is a useful function in Excel, we can use it to quickly return the corresponding data of the leftmost column in the table. However, if you want to look up a specific value in any other column and return the relative value to the left, the normal vlookup function will not work. Here, I can introduce you other formulas to solve this problem.

Thanks! Helped me a lot! Except the formula should be
=LOOKUP(1,1/(\$B\$2:\$B\$8<=E2)/(\$C\$2:\$C\$8>=E2),\$A\$2:\$A\$8)   (and not =LOOKUP(2,.....)As you are looking for a match with 1 instead of 2! (1/True(1)/True(1) = 1)

Hello, what if I want to add another criteria. For example, if there was another column D called "Group ID" that I want to add in the formula. i.e. If group ID=302511 then LOOKUP(2,1/(\$A\$2:\$A\$7<=F1)/(\$B\$2:\$B\$7>=F1),\$C\$2:\$C\$7). Is this possible?

When try with this in F2 =Lookup(F1,\$A\$2:\$B\$7,\$C\$2:\$C\$7) got the similar result. Can you pl explain the difference and why 2 been used as lookup value.
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
I think it's because that's the number of lookup factors you have. I tried it with three factors and I used 3 as the lookup value. I'm not sure exactly, but I think by putting "3" and then using the "/" to separate the lookup vectors you tell Excel to search for the three following inputs to return the output.

This is brilliant. Simplicity in explanation is perfect. One of the quickest formulae I've ever looked up to learn. Thank you.

Hi! Nice explanation, but how can we do the same exercise if we have multiple projects with the same dates? In that case I want the name of those projects to be returned not only a single value... Thanks!
