- Where 'Array' is the range of cells that makes up the list or database
- 'Field' shows which column is used in the function and
- 'Criteria' is the range of cells that contains the specified criteria.
- DGET(), extracts from a database a single record that matches the specified criteria.
The function obtains a single value from the list or database that matches a specified condition.
- A 'Field' argument can be expressed as "Salary" (a column name) or 3(position of the column).
- If no matching records are found, Calci returns an #N/A error message.
- If more than one records are matching with the given criteria, Calci returns an #N/A error message.
- Criteria can be any range on the Calci with minimum of one column and at least one row indicating the condition.
- The Criteria columns should not overlap the list of data.
Consider the following table in ZCalci with Employee names, Age and Salary columns.
Row1 to Row3 has the criteria fields. Row4 to Row10 display the actual data.

=DGET(A4:C10,2,C1:D2) : Extracts a single value from the second column (Age) in the range A4 to C10, for the cells with Salary>8000 and Age>32.

=DGET(A4:C10,"Salary",A1:A3) : Extracts a single value from Salary column in the range A4 to C10, for all cells from the Name column.
