DGET(database, field, criteria)

Returns the single value in a database column satisfying certain conditions.

databaseThe range of cells that make up the database or list.
fieldThe column name or number indicating which column to use.
criteriaThe range of cells that contain the conditions.

Remarks

* Any cells containing text, logical values or errors are NOT INCLUDED. See Example 15.
* If more than one row meets the criteria, then #NUM! is returned. See Examples 11 and 12.
* The "database" can be a cell reference or a named range.
* The "database" range of cells must contain column headings in the first row. See Example 19.
* The "field" can be a column label, a column number (left to right) or a cell reference.
* The "field" label is not case sensitive. See Example 9.
* If "field" is left blank, then #VALUE! is returned. See Example 20.
* The "criteria" must include at least one column heading and one cell below the column heading. See Example 16.
* If "criteria" is left blank, then #VALUE! is returned. See Example 21
* The "criteria" must be in a contiguous block of adjacent cells.
* The "criteria" can be anywhere on the active sheet, although it is recommended not to put it below the data, in case more data is added later on.
* Make sure the "criteria" and "database" ranges do not overlap and that they are always separated by at least one blank row or column.
* To perform an operation on an entire column in a database, enter a blank line below the column labels in the "criteria" range.
* If no rows match the criteria, then #VALUE! is returned. See Example 14.
* For a working example of how to specify your database criteria refer to the Specifying Database Criteria page.
* It is possible to use the data from a pivot table. When the "database" range refers to a cell inside a pivot table, the calculation is only performed on the data currently displayed in the pivot table.
