Hi,

Hopefully someone can help me here?

In 2010 I have a table with departments names as column headers and the first column contains week numbers.

Is it possible to to cross reference the date using [department name] and [week number]?

So a formula may be =£450/[department wage 1][wk2].

This would divide £450 by the wages for wk1 in department 1?

I know cells can be cross referenced using INDEX & MATCH but the formulas are long and difficult to read - any ideas?

Thanks

Aaron

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.
a perfect example for VLOOKUP I would think:

=450/VLOOKUP(Wk2,TableAddress,MATCH(Department,HeaderAddress))
