DGET

Returns a single value from a database table-like array or range using a SQL-like query.

Sample Usage

DGET(A2:F20,G2,A22:D23)

DGET(A2:F20,"price",{"Ticker";"Google"})

Syntax

DGET(database, field, criteria)

  • database - The array or range containing the data to consider, structured in such a way that the first row contains the labels for each column's values.

  • field - Indicates which column in database contains the values to be extracted and operated on.

    • field may either be a text label corresponding to a column header in the first row of database or a numeric index indicating which column to consider, where the first column has the value 1.
  • criteria - An array or range containing zero or more criteria to filter the database values by before operating.

Notes

  • Detailed information about database functions and constructing queries around criteria can be found in the Database Functions help article.

  • DGET is the only database function which does not aggregate - it will return an error if the filtered data has either no matching elements or more than one matching element.
