    Building upon an INDEX and MATCH search with expanded criteria.

    Last week I asked how to lookup the intersection of a Column and Row and my problem was sloved using INDEX and MATCH formulas for the Columns and Rows. My initial table was 1 row per year 2013-2042 vs business days of the week. I've expanded the table to include 12 months per each year 2013 thru 2042.. My formula is working but returning improper data points.

    My INDEX is a table of bond rates 1-30yrs 12 months per year

    Rows are 12 mo per year 2013 thru 2042:
    1-Jan-13
    1-Feb-13
    1-Mar-13
    "
    "
    1-Dec-42

    My coulmns are:
    1/3/2012
    1/4/2012
    1/5/2012
    "
    "
    6/19/2012

    The formula I'm using is INDEX(array,MATCH(lookup_value,array),MATCH(lookup_value,array))
    - INDEX = rates each month of each maturity year (2013-2042)
    - MATCH #1 I look to match the day of the week (my cloumns)
    - MATCH #2 I look to match the maturity month and year (e.g. 1-Feb-2016)

    Please let me know if its a formating or formula error.

    Many thanks,
    Bill

    My search will be to find the rate that matches a business day of the year with a

    the first match() function should have a 3rd FALSE or 0 argument to make it find exact matches. Maybe that will solve the problem?
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    TRY this

    INDEX(array,MATCH(lookup_value,array,0),MATCH(lookup_value,array,0))
