    I have INDEX MATCH formula that does not work for one array but does for another

    Iím stumped.

    Bottom Line Up Front: I used a formula for one array that worked. I copied formula and changed relevant details to the new array but it does not work.

    INDEX MATCH formula that works is from F32-F280.
    =INDEX($A$2:$AN$29,MATCH(C32,$A$2:$A$29,0),MATCH(D32,$A$2:$AN$2,0))

    INDEX MATCH formula that does not work:
    =INDEX($AQ$2:$BO$30,MATCH(C32,$AQ$2:$BO$2,0),MATCH(L32,$AQ$2:$AQ$30,0))


    The working formula indexes:
    ~Pay Grades from row A2-A29 and
    ~Years working from B2-AN2
    ~And produces the Base Pay (BP) of the employee in F32-F280.


    The non-working formula indexes:
    ~Pay Grades from row AQ2-BO2 and
    ~City where housing allowance is calculated from AQ2-AQ30

    It does not work as it keeps producing the wrong amount.

    I have no idea what I did wrong so thank you for your tiime.

    Try swapping the two MATCH sections around, so you have:

    =INDEX($AQ$2:$BO$30,MATCH(L32,$AQ$2:$AQ$30,0),MATCH(C32,$AQ$2:$BO$2,0))
