    Double lookup or index and match?

    Afternoon all,

    I'm hoping someone can help with the below. Basically I have a table of prices (1,2,3 over A,B,C,D,E etc) and I need to complete a value for a list of requests, i.e how much for C 2 or A 3 for example.

    I'm lost on the best way to do this....

    Thanks in advance

    =index(b4:d10,match(g5,a4:a10,0),match(f5,b3:d3,0))

    CSE, aka Array aka { }, formulae are confirmed with CONTROL+SHIFT+ENTER.
    Replace commas ( , ) with semicolons ( ; ) in formulae, if your locale setting demands.
    All good ideas are courtesy resources from this forum as well as others around the web.

    looks like the values in b3:d3 are text delete them format the cells as general and re enter them

    looks like cell F5 is number where as cells B3:D3 are text. if that is the case, you will get an error. keep them all in the same format.
