    Index/Match/Match. Formula looking veritcal and horizontal headings to find a match

    Hi
    I have spend a lot of time to figure it out myself but I can not crack it. I wonder if someone can help me.

    There are two sheets:
    1) profiles_available
    2) profiles_selected

    On sheet profiles_available I have a following table
    Row1 Col A Col B Col C Col D Col E
    Row2 Standard wk B/H Mon noname xmas
    Row3 Sunday 2.31 10 8 0
    Row4 Saturday 11.27 10 11 0
    Row5 Friday 17.57 20 27 0
    Row6 Thursday 17.57 20 27 25
    Row7 Wednesday 17.57 20 27 25
    Row8 Tuesday 17.57 20 0 25
    Row9 Monday 16.14 0 0 25



    On sheet profiles_selected I have a following table
    Row1 Col B Col C Col D Col E
    Row2 Selected profile → xmas Standard wk B/H Mon
    Row3 Sunday
    Row4 Saturday
    Row5 Friday
    Row6 Thursday
    Row7 Wednesday
    Row8 Tuesday
    Row9 Monday







    Now I would like to have a formula that would help me to populate this empty table on sheet profiles_selected using the vertical and horizontal headings (in bold RED).
    Row1 Col B Col C Col D Col E
    Row2 Selected profile → xmas Standard wk B/H Mon
    Row3 Sunday 0 2.31 10
    Row4 Saturday 0 11.27 10
    Row5 Friday 0 17.57 20
    Row6 Thursday 25 17.57 20
    Row7 Wednesday 25 17.57 20
    Row8 Tuesday 25 17.57 20
    Row9 Monday 25 16.14 0



    I have attached spreadsheet with both sheets on it (plus example of before and after). If anyone can help me out I would appreciate this a lot.


    Cheers

    Hi,

    The profiles selected table appears to be the same as the available table apart from the order of the columns. It's not immediately apparent to me why you even need a new table, but trivially can't you just link the cells directly?

    e.g. in C3 in the selected table
    =profiles_available!E3
    and copied down.

    create a similar formula in D3 & E3.

    If I've missed something significant then please explain further.

    Regards
    Richard Buttrey

    Re: Index/Match/Match. Formula looking veritcal and horizontal headings to find a mat

    Hi Richard
    Thank you for quick reply.
    Both tables are fraction of the real spreadsheet and there is also some dynamic data involved. Let me put it this way, the table on profiles_available has currently near 20 different profiles (and it will be still growing over period of time). I only need 4-5 active profiles. Both of these tables were just an example. My intention is to use dynamic named ranges at later stage etc. I won't go into too much detail as otherwise it will become rather long and boring post. I just need to have the flexibility to change the header values of these 4-5 active profiles (there is validation drop down list on row 2) and get the figures changed on the fly accordingly.


    Thank you for showing interest.
    Any help is still appreciated.

    Hi

    profiles_selected!c3: =OFFSET(profiles_available!$A$1,ROW()-1,MATCH(C$2,profiles_available!$2:$2,0)-1)

    See how that goes.

    Hi,

    If your original doesn't reflect the detail of the real workbook would you therefore upload at least a representative sample of your workbook.
    There's no point is us guessing what it looks like when an actual example should definitively explain it.

    It is most frustrating to attempt a solution only to discover we haven't been given the full story.

    Regards

    You're a star! Works as advertised. Thank you.

    Richard
    Thank you for your contribution. Uploading the whole spreadsheet would been too complicated for me. I thought I will try to keep it simple to begin with. I think I explained it sufficiently and gave enough examples and illustrations so at least Rylo was able to understand what I was after.


    Thank you both for helping me.
    Cheers
