Hello very clever people,

Can I please get some help before I lose all my hair?

This is an extract of my data:

You will note that the same record appears three times in column A. This is becuase the program that spat this data out is stupid. There is nothing I can do about that. I need to put it into this format:

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 167pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=221 border=0 x:str><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 23pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 1097" width=30><COL style="WIDTH: 60pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 2925" width=80><COL style="WIDTH: 26pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 1243" width=34><COL style="WIDTH: 27pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 1316" width=36><COL style="WIDTH: 31pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 1499" width=41><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 11.25pt" height=15><TD class=xl27 style="BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-TOP: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; WIDTH: 23pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; HEIGHT: 11.25pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: silver" width=30 height=15>

So, in H2 (for example) I want to match cell G2 and H1 from the table A1:C7. I just can't do it. I thought I had it with:
=IF((AND(G2=B2:B7,H1=C2:C7)),D2:D7,No) as it does return "Trunk" but the minute I put the same formula into I2 - and change the formula to =IF((AND(G2=B2:B7,I1=C2:C7)),D2:D7,No) - I just get "No".

I can't work this out. My head hurts.

Can someone PLEASE tell me what the formula should be??

Many thanks in advance.

H2, control+shift+enter, not just enter, copy across, and down:
Rich (BB code):
=INDEX($C$2:$C$7,MATCH(1,{0}+IF($B$2:$B$7=H$1,
   IF($A$2:$A$7=$G2,1)),0))

Aladin,

You are a total star. I had tried Index and Match but I clearly hadn't tried hard enough (lost the will to live) and to be honest I'm a VLOOKUP girlie, and it's made me lazy.

THANK YOU so very very much.

Kindest,

Mouse.
