Learn Excel – “Risk Factor / 3 Way Lookup” – Podcast #1742

July 5, 2013 at 5:04 pm

Tom sends in today’s question. Enter age, gender, lab result and then lookup the rating in a table to indicate if someone’s risk is low, moderate, high, or very high. Tom wants to return the result as a color (green, blue, yellow, red) via conditional formatting to the lab result cell. Today, in Episode #1742, Bill has a little of everything: rearranging the table, exact match, Less than Match, subtracting the number 1, OFFSET, assigning a formula to a defined name, then even a linked picture (aka Camera Tool) lookup for good measure. Bill always says that 99% of his VLOOKUPs end in False. For today’s solution, that statistic drops to 25%.
