    Problems with multi-criteria Index/Match. LOOKUP works. Index/Match, SUMPRODUCT,ARRAY fail

    I am having problems with multi-criteria Index/Match and SumProduct.
    I can get LOOKUP to work.

    Can you look a test .xlsx file for me?

    This works: =LOOKUP(2,1/($A$2:$A$6=D2)/($B$2:$B$6=E2),($C$2:$C$6))
    This fails: =INDEX($C$2:$C$6,MATCH(D2&E2,$A$2:$A$6&$B$2:$B$6,0)) #VALUE!
    =INDEX($C$2:$C$6,MATCH(D2&E2,A2:A6&B2:B6,0)) #VALUE!
    =INDEX($C$2:$C$6,MATCH(1,(D2=$A$2:$A$6)*(E2=$B$2:$B$6),0)) #N/A
    =INDEX($C$2:$C$6,SUMPRODUCT(($A$2:$A$6=D2)*($B$2:$B$6=E2)*ROW($C$2:$C$6)),0)
    SUMPRODUCT seems to calculate "off a row" and "muffs" either the first or last row.

    Again, I can get it to work. What I expected to get it done failed.

    Bottom line I "burned" a lot of time at MS and other googled sites and LOOKUP is the only one standing.

    Looks like you tried to enter array formula. Try to enter the formula with Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys together.

    You don't need to enter an array formula if you modify your original to:

    The formulas you have in columns F H and I are Array formuls that MUST be entered with CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER
    Highlight the cell with the formula, press F2
    Then Press CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER
    When correctly entered, the formula will be enclosed in {brackets}

    The formuals in J K and L will not work because the Row Function returns a row #.
    You're indexing C2:C6, but if it's Row 2 that is matching, then the Row function returns 2 (2 is the 2nd row)
    But, INDEX(C2:C6,2) = C3 (C3 is the 2nd position in C2:C6)

    If the matching value is in C6, then Row = 6
    Index(C2:C6,6) = #REF! because there is no 6th position in C2:C6 (there are only 5 cells in C2:C6)

    Hope that helps clear it up.
