    changing data in row/columns into only rows

    First, thanks to anyone who is looking at this for your help

    I am trying to write a formula, which I will use the screenshots below to help explain

    http://i800.photobucket.com/albums/y...615/Sheet2.jpg

    http://i800.photobucket.com/albums/y...n615/total.jpg

    You can see in the sheet 'total' that I have rows of countries and columns of years. In the sheet 'sheet2' there is a row for each country and year. I need to transfer the values from 'total' to column 'CTERRTTL' in 'sheet2'.

    For example, cell C2 of 'sheet2' should result in the value of cell B6 of 'total'; and C8 of 'sheet2' should result in the value of cell H6 of 'total'

    Ideally, the formula will be written into sheet2 C2, and dragged down

    I have tried experimenting with the match, index, and lookup formulas, but aren't that familiar with them and can't make it work

    Thanks in advance for your help!!

    G'day Brain,

    The first link to your screenshot is broken.

    It will be easier to post a small example of dummy info with a manual info of before and after results. This will make the helpers of this forum easier to work with and achieve a quicker result for you.
    Have I made you happy ??? If yes, please make me happy by pressing the http://www.excelforum.com/images/buttons/reputation-40b.png Add Reputation button in my post.

    Try this in C2, you'll have to adjust the INDEX range to cover the whole inner table, and the two MATCH ranges to cover the left column range and the top row range...

    =INDEX(Total!$B$2:$Z$1000, MATCH($A2, Total!$A$2:$A$1000, 0), MATCH($B2, $B$1:$Z$1, 0))

    Copy that down and across your table.

    I tried this and got an "#N/A" result

    Here's how I edited your code to match my table size,

    =INDEX(total!$B$2:$AC$126, MATCH($A2, total!$A$2:$A$126, 0), MATCH($B1, total!$B$1:$AC$2, 0))

    I should also mention that the sheet 'sheet2' contains some countries which the 'total' sheet does not. In those cases (where there is no match to country name) the formula result should (ideally) be zero

    Thanks for the reply ratcat

    the link should be fixed.

    Here's my example:

    http://i800.photobucket.com/albums/y...totalsheet.jpg

    http://i800.photobucket.com/albums/y...615/before.jpg

    http://i800.photobucket.com/albums/y...n615/after.jpg

    The first screenshot is the source of the data the formula will pull from

    The second screenshot is where the formula is created

    The third screenshot is the results when the formula is done. Because there was no 'Canada' country in the source data, its result is zero

    Thanks again for the help; let me know if its still not clear
