    IF / INDEX-MATCH Combination

    Hi All,

    I'm hoping someone can help me figure this out. Essentially, here is what I'm trying to accomplish using a formula:
    In cell N2, look for matches to M1 value in column B, then within these matches, look for a match to M2 value in column C. Then, given that a combination of these 2 criteria is found, make the following calculation : [(column D value on the right of two criteria match)/L1]*(column E value on the right of two criteria match)

    Then the idea would be to drop this formula down the N column so that it adapts to changing values in the M columns, depending on a choice made in M1.TEST1.xlsx

    I've attached a spreasheet example. Thanks for your help with this!

    I *think* this is what you want?
    =SUMPRODUCT(--($B$2:$B$33=$M$1),--($C$2:$C$33=M2),($D$2:$D$33/$L$1*$E$2:$E$33))

    Hi Fdibbins,

    Thanks for your answer. I don't understand how this formula looks for a multiple criteria MATCH in order to know what values to use in the calculation?

    Thanks!

    I'm reading it the same as you Ford.

    @Joshua,
    Ford is using a well-known (that is, well-known to excel power-users) but informal trick to get the SUMPRODUCT function to do boolean conditional testing; that boolean conditional is the MATCH operation you're looking for.

    This stackoverflow thread which is clarifying the need for number-forcing is actually also a clear and pretty succinct description of how the trick works.
