Hello everyone!

I am in the process of making a dropdown-based table to fetch data. I have gone through the motions to create the dropdown via data validation, and that works fine, however I am in the process of trying to get the data I need and I will get N/A in the cell. The table I am attempting to populate INTO is supposed to give me an amount of issues by year, sorted as follows:


A
B
C
D
E
1

TIMING
TYPO
MISC


2
OCT
N/A




3
NOV





4
DEC



























<tbody>
</tbody>

I am trying to get this data to populate from a “timing” table that is structured like this:
A
B
C


2018
2019
1
OCT
1
1
2
NOV
2
2
3
DEC
1
3
4

The overall goal is to render a “1” in cell B1 of the bottom table with the use of a dropdown.
The data for the dropdown, the year, is on another table and tab titled “year” and is only one column, years 2018 to 2030 represented. I know I need to use a Vlookup of some kind, but I’m unsure as to how to structure it.

Thanks ….VERY much for the time, everyone.
