    Lookup multiple criteria in multiple columns in multiple rows; return true if exists

    This is probably one of the most complex lookups I've tried. I can easily do it on paper but not over 3000 line items. The setup is below. Basically, I have a bunch of straggler products of odd sizes I'm trying to group into existing buckets if they fall within +/- 20% of the bucket size.


    Table 1: Existing Buckets
    ProductID Product Name Package Size
    100 Product A 118
    100 Product A 15.6
    10014 Product B 100
    10014 Product B 250

    Table 2: Straggler Products
    Product ID Package Size Existing Bucket? (TRUE/FALSE)
    100 120 (Should be TRUE - as 118 is within 20%)
    100 473 (Should be FALSE - as neither 118 or 15.6 is within 20%)
    10014 115 (Should be TRUE)
    10014 225 (Should be TRUE)

    I think splitting up Package Size in Table 1 into upper and lower bounds of the 20% and then using if statements for subtracting the value in Table 2 might be the right direction. E.g. if Lower Bound minus the Table 2 Package size is NEGATIVE, it would be within the range. And if Upper Bound minus Table 2 Package size is POSITIVE, it would be within the range.

    I think maybe a combination off INDEX, MATCH, and IF statements? Any help would be appreciated!

    With Table 1 in A1:C5 and Table 2 in E1 to G5, try this in G2:

    =IF(COUNTIFS(A:A,E2,C:C,">="&F2-0.2*F2,C:C,"<="&F2+0.2*F2),TRUE)

    slightly shorter:

    =IF(COUNTIFS(A:A,E2,C:C,">="&0.8*F2,C:C,"<="&1.2*F2),TRUE)
