    Help required with Index, Match Formula

    Hi, I need an index, match formula to return the best possible match. I've attached a worksheet showing exactly what I need. Any help would be appreciated.

    The formula would need to look at the postcode in cell B20 then find the best match between B3:AO16. In this case the answer should be LS25 (Cell O6)

    Thanks.

    I think in order to help, there needs to be a better explanation of the data and/or problem.

    How does the 6HP in the Postcode relate to the answer you are trying to lookup?

    Hi, "LS25 6HP" is the example FULL UK postcode. I want to find an return the best possible result from from the lookup_array B3:AO16. The best result in this case would be LS25 (cell 06).

    Thanks.

    i think it's a partial text match that's required?

    Re: Help required with Index, Match Formula

    Hi, we've managed to get a little further using multiple XLOOKUP formulas. The starting postcode in the attached worksheet is S417FD and the answer is S.
    Can anyone suggest a slicker way of doing this? Maybe nesting the XLOOKUP in to one formula?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
