I have the following INDEX and MATCH formula . . .

=IF(C31="Confirmed Sideways",INDEX('D1'!$Q$1:$Q$100,MATCH(F31,'D1'!$S$1:$S$100,0)),IF(C31="Suspect Sideways",INDEX('D1'!$L$1:$L$100,MATCH(F31,'D1'!$N$1:$N$100,0)),IF(C31="Confirmed Bearish",INDEX('D1'!$G$1:$G$100,MATCH(F31,'D1'!$I$1:$I$100,0)),IF(C31="Suspect Bearish",INDEX('D1'!$B$1:$B$100,MATCH(F31,'D1'!$D$1:$D$100,0)),IF(C31="Confirmed Bullish",INDEX('D1'!$AA$1:$AA$100,MATCH(F31,'D1'!$AC$1:$AC$100,0)),IF(C31="Suspect Bullish",INDEX('D1'!$V$1:$V$100,MATCH(F31,'D1'!$X$1:$X$100,0))))))))

My problem is it works randomly. I get the correct number in some cells but others I get #N/A) when the exact same data in that same column is being accessed. For example:

Sector
XLRESuspect Bullish
#N/A
SectorXLUSuspect Bullish18

<tbody>
</tbody>



Same exact formula for Suspect Bullish, same column of numbers it's searching . . . and it gives #N/A . . . 18 is correct for XLU but I can't understand why XLRE returns the error. I have checked all cells and they are all numbers / data, not text.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help!

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.
