    Simplifying a formula

    Hello,

    Is there a different way of expressing the following formula?

    =VLOOKUP(B6,Pipes,4)*E6 + VLOOKUP(B7,Pipes,4)*E7 + VLOOKUP(B8,Pipes,4)*E8

    I would like to be able to express B6, B7 and B8 as a range (or named range) and the same for E6, E7 and E8


    Thank you very much.

    Kind regards

    hi there. could you break up the Pipes into 2 parts? if Pipes is G6:J9, then it'll be something like:
    =SUMPRODUCT(LOOKUP(B6:B8,G6:G8,J6:J8)*E6:E8)
