    Index Large Match

    Hello All,

    I'm sure this has been answered a thousand times, but I need some help. I'm using an index match formula and believe I need to embed a "large" function within it. For example in sheet 2, I have a formula in E1 that references columns A-C.

    Column A Column B
    ABC 12/31/2015
    ABC 12/31/2014
    ABC 12/31/2013
    BCA 12/31/2016
    BCA 06/30/2015
    BCA 06/30/2014

    I am looking for a formula that looks up the second date. If in cell D1, I write ABC, then ultimately I need the result of 12/31/2014 in cell E1. If in cell D2 I write BCA, then I need the result of 06/30/2015. I tried an index/match formula, but that didn't work. Basically it looked like this, index(Column B, Match(D1,Column A,0). I tried putting a "Large" formula in place of Column B within the index/match formula, but it gave me an error.

    Any thoughts?

    Try this if all you need is the 2nd data for any value
    =INDEX($B$1:$B$6,MATCH($A$10,$A$1:$A$6,0)+1)
