    =Index formula not working correctly

    Hi all,

    I have a formula which copies every nth cell in a row from one sheet to another.

    The problem is, when I drag and copy the formula to the right on another sheet it works perfectly, but it does not work when i drag it down.

    The formula is =INDEX(Sheet2!$C1:$BRL1,3*(COLUMNS($A$1:A$1)-1)+1)

    Can anyone help please?

    Thank you

    Hi,

    Have worked once on the same thing, There I was working with Index , Match.

    Add headers to your sample file, to assist you with the formula.

    =INDEX(Sheet2!$C$1:$BRL$1,3*(ROWS($A$1:A1)-1)+1)
