    Question how to enter value in cell based on logic from other two cells?

    I have 3 cells that need to work together. I want to enter the pay-rate(J2) for each person but I do not want to do it manually. I want to fill in J2 but off of logic using E2 and F2. For example, If E2 says "weekend" and F2 says "Day" then I want it to reference D2 from my other worksheet which is the value for weekday+Day = $10. So $10 would reflect back on my first sheet under pay-rate (J2).

    I am assuming may need to some multiple statement to achieve this, however functions are not my strong suite in excel. I would also think it would be a very large logic to input all 6 combinations.


    Here are all the payrate different combinations...


    Different pay rate combinations (pic below, these values live on a different sheet)
    Weekday Day $10
    Weekday Evening $20
    Weekday Night $25
    Weekend Day $20
    Weekend Evening $25
    Weekend Night $30

    In J2 try...

    =IFERROR(INDEX(Sheet4!$D$2:$D$7,MATCH(E2&F2,Sheet4!$B$2:$B$7&Sheet4!$C$2:$C$7,0)),"")


    IMPORTANT
    • This is an array formula
    • Enter the formula >> press F2 then >> CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER
    • If entered correctly, the formula will be enclosed in {brackets}
    • Do not enter the {brackets} manually

    BTW: Next time you may want to post a workbook rather than a picture. Much easier to test plus no need to have to retype your data.

    Thank you man! I really appreciate it. Looks great, but just 1 tad issue lol. You placed in it the payout but should have been in $ rate . I think I can try to paste the code to the next column and make it work.

    Thank you again, I appreciate your help.
