    =LOOKUP(REPT("Z",255),CHOOSE({1,2},"",INDEX($A2:$F2,MATCH(1,INDEX(($A2:$F2<>"")*ISNA(MATCH($A2:$F2,$J2:J2,0)),0),0))))
    =IF(COLUMN(K2:K2)<=SUM(--($A$2:$J$2<>"")),INDEX($A$2:$J$2,0,SMALL(IF($A$2:$J$2<>"",COLUMN($A$2:$J$2),""),COLUMN(K2:K2))),"")

    Re: Best Of Excel Forum

    I'm always reluctant to asign authorship to any solution, no matter how brilliant.
    Any given solution, while new to any particular forum, usually appeared someplace else,
    or was built upon some other related solution. Consequently, you'll never see me
    referring to "my formula" or "my solution". Rather, I refer to "the formula I posted". I'm happy
    to mention that I first saw a solution posted by [enter somebody's name here].

    I dont realy think that any one thread or solution can be pin pointed as better that another.

    there are many talanted guys and girls on here that are amazing in their own right, some have a great overall understanding, some chart like no other, and others post code that 200 nasa monkeys go bannanas over.

    Re: Best Of Excel Forum

    Pike, I don't get it. The formula is hard to understand if your screenshot does not include the column letters and row numbers. Also, it might help to present a few words about the problem, like "sum all values with letter B for John on Friday"

    But whichever way I apply column headers, the formula does not do it. In order to test it, I'd have to re-type the whole setup and make assumptions about cell references. A file attachment instead of a screenshot might be a better way to go.

    Re: Best Of Excel Forum

    Hello Pike,

    In my opinion if you're going to do this sort of thing as a reference guide then you probably ought to follow some sort of "best practice". I know that's subjective to a degree but there are certain things that I think you need to stick to

    For example with regards to the last SUMPRODUCT formula.....

    The formula displayed sums for Tuesday rather than Friday and there's no need for IF functions like that in SUMPRODUCT you can write it like this and avoid CSE (and sum Friday)

    =SUMPRODUCT(E4:E17,J4:J17,(D4:D17=D21)*(C4:C17=D20))

    I would have thought, however, that the intent here would be for the user to specify any name, letter and day and get the result automatically so to get the correct column to use based on the day in D19 that would become

    =SUMPRODUCT(E4:E17,INDEX(F4:J17,0,MATCH(D19,F3:J3,0)),(D4:D17=D21)*(C4:C17=D20))

    regards, daddylonglegs
