# formula help needed

Good Evening

I have set up a Football predictor to help raise money for my charity. I have just been entering the points as i go along but now my entries are starting to increase i have been looking into a way of excel doing it for me.

i cant seem to get it right though. I have a tab for every player, tab for the points (which is a two way table. Predition scores at top and actual scores on left with the points in the middle) tab for the games where i enter the actual score on so it goes to all players tabs straight away.

On the player tab i have the set up as follows

game/ home team/ actual score/ away team/ prediction / points

in the points column i need a formula to look up what the player predicted against the actual score to return the points from the table.

Can anyone help?

### Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Is there really a need for a sheet/player? Excel often works best when all data is kept on 1 sheet, and all summaries etc pull from that 1 sheet

it makes it easier to track and keep other information like how much each player owes and if they pay a little more to save paying each week.

Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
