    Welcome to the forum.

    Whilst I understand that you may be in a bit of a panic, don't tell us that it is needed by the end of the day, please. All your helpers here are volunteers giving freely of their own time: you haven't paid a penny for any assistance you get here, therefore expecting any form of speed response or preferential treatment, or seeming to, is inappropriate.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    In K4 for company copied down:

    =INDEX($G$4:$G$53,MATCH(J4,$F$4:$F$53,0))

    For the other two columns, change the index range in red for Hours1 and Hours2.

    If that takes care of your original question, please select Thread Tools from the menu link above and mark this thread as SOLVED.

    Thanks Ali. The formula you provided worked for the company column.

    I changed to the formula below for the hour1 column but i got different values.
    if you kindly provide a formula for the hour1 and hour2 column, i will be very much grateful.
    thanks

    =INDEX($D$4:$D$53,MATCH(J4,$F$4:$F$53,0))

    For that one, you need to change the LOOKUP range as well!!!

    =INDEX($D$4:$D$53,MATCH(J4,$B$4:$B$53,0))

    Then for the last column:

    =INDEX($H$4:$H$53,MATCH(J4,$F$4:$F$53,0))

    I learnt almost everything I know from this forum. I simply keep notes of useful titbits and apply them to my own or other people's problems to practise using them.
