    You may need to change this:

    =IF(MONTH(INDEX(Table5[A],MATCH($A2,Table5[Column1],0)))=MONTH($B$1),"A","")

    to this:

    =IF(MONTH(INDEX(Table5[A];MATCH($A2;Table5[Column1],0)))=MONTH($B$1);"A";"")

    (i.e. semi-colons instead of commas).

    This is why changing your location setting in your profile is important.

    EDIT: As I now know you are using a UK locale, you should go with commas, not semi-colons.

    Do you have automatic calculation turned off? Your workbook works fine here, and there is nothing in the formula that shouldn't work in 2010, I believe.

    Any luck? Are we there yet?

    You are obviously an early-riser, like me.

    That won't make a difference, actually - the US locale uses commas, too. Have you checked the calculation setting? Formulas > Calculation Settings - should be set to automatic.

    PS I was up at 0545.

    What do you mean by "can u change the dates to basic formulas so it wont make any errors at least ???"?

    There is NOTHING in the formula I have given you that does not work in 2010. This is about you getting Excel to work at your end: it has nothing to do with the formula I have given you. The attachment I have given you works, the attachment you have provided works. The solution I have offered is about as basic as they get.

    By the way, when I first open your file, I see the #VALUE! error: do you have the file set to be editable? Is the file protected in any way? When I click to enable editing, it works fine.

    Re: Date Match Formula Needed

    Well, the only thing that might be messing it up is the US locale, and if so, it's going to mess up any date formula, however simple. Can you type this into any empty cell and let me know whether it returns TRUE or FALSE?

    =AO19=DATE(2018,2,1)

    No, I am not mad at you: you are not the first person who has been tricky to deal with at first and found our rules inconvenient.

    Re: Date Match Formula Needed

    On reflection, you may need to change your computer date and time display settings - the locale needs to be the UK for the date formats you are using. Which version of Windows are you using?
