Help with Index/Match or however it will work to get the value I need with two criteria

1. Help with Index/Match or however it will work to get the value I need with two criteria

Hi all the Excel Guru out there,

I have a huge table with over 20k vendors on it. A lot of them have the same name, or same address. I need to use a formula that will give me the correct vendor ID when I enter the name & address on a work sheet. I've created an example here. Right now I'm using "Find" to paste the name and look up the addresses and it takes forever to get the vendor ID. Please help save my day!

Wouldn't that be just a simple Match/Index ? =INDEX('Vendor Data'!\$B\$2:\$B\$175,MATCH(A2,'Vendor Data'!\$A\$2:\$A\$175,0))

=IFERROR(INDEX('Vendor Data'!\$B\$2:\$B\$175,MATCH(A2&B2&C2&D2&E2&F2,INDEX('Vendor Data'!\$A\$2:\$A\$175&'Vendor Data'!\$C\$2:\$C\$175&'Vendor Data'!\$D\$2:\$D\$175&'Vendor Data'!\$E\$2:\$E\$175&'Vendor Data'!\$F\$2:\$F\$175&'Vendor Data'!\$G\$2:\$G\$175,0),0)),"")
TRY THIS

No it doesn't work. For row 30 and 31, the two vendors have the same name but different addresses. The formula gave me the same vendor ID.
