Hello, i was looking for help on an excel doc, its basically allocating the expenses into different categories but the names for the expenses differ, is there any way i can make the names fit into these specific categories or change each name to fit the category?

EDIT:
to be more specific is there any formula i can use to make it easier or do i change each name one by one to fit into their respective category

1. You would be better served uploading an actual file and not a picture of a file. We cannot manipulate data in a picture and no one really wants to spend their time re-creating your file.
2. You did not offer any type of information on how this should look as solved. Creating a manually prepared sample helps us to understand what you want. Afterall, we are not mind readers

I was trying to construct a mini spreadsheet along lines of what I thought might be a type of solution but have run into a problem using Index and Match.
My attempt below
Excel Workbook
ABCDEFG
3PI
4DATESYMBOLDescriptontotalHST%PHONEINSURANCE

Sheet1



If i can get C5 to equal F4 then i would place a fomula in F5 to pick up value in D5.
Any assistance welcome

Hello, thank you for the replies. I am sorry that i did not upload the file and just a picture, it was my first time doing it and i also should have been more clear about how i wanted it to look. I will make another thread with the uploaded file.
