Author: Xiaoyang Last Modified: 2021-01-08

The VLOOKUP function can help you to find and return the first matching value by default whether it is a normal range or filtered list. Sometimes, you just want to vlookup and return only the visible value if there is a filtered list. How could you deal with this task in Excel?

Vlookup and return matching value in filtered list with Array formulas

The following array formulas can help you to find and return the matching value in a filtered list, please do as this:

Enter this formula:

=INDEX(B4:B19,MATCH(1,IF(SUBTOTAL(3,OFFSET(A4:A19,ROW(A4:A19)-ROW(A4),0,1))>0,IF(A4:A19=F2,1)),0)) into a cell where you want to locate the result, and then press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys together, and you will get the corresponding value as you need, see screenshot:

Note: In the above formula:

F2: is the lookup value you want to find its corresponding value;

A4:A19: is the data range which contains the lookup value;

B4:B19: is the column data which contains the result value you want to return.

Here is another array formula also can do you a favor, please enter this formula:

=VLOOKUP(F2,IF(SUBTOTAL(3,OFFSET(A4:A19,ROW(A4:A19)-ROW(A4),0,1))>0,A4:D19),4,0) into a blank cell, and then press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys together to get the correct result, see screenshot:

Note: In the above formula:

F2: is the lookup value you want to find its corresponding value;

A4:A19: is the data range which contains the lookup value;

A4:D19: is the data range that you want to use;

the number 4: is the column number that your matched value return.

Hello, Be,
If you want to lookup and return the matched value from another worksheet, please apply the below formula:
=INDEX(Sheet1!B2:B11,MATCH(1,IF(SUBTOTAL(3,OFFSET(Sheet1!A2:A11,ROW(Sheet1!A2:A11)-ROW(Sheet1!A2),0,1))>0,IF(Sheet1!A2:A11=F2,1)),0))

After pasting the formula, please press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys together.

Note: In the above formula:
Sheet1: is the main worksheet contains the data you want to use;
B2:B11: is the column data which contains the result value you want to return;
A2:A11: is the data range which contains the lookup value;
F2: is the lookup value you want to find its corresponding value.
