Index/Match in 2 data tables


Board Regular
May 20, 2013
So Index/Match is a great tool but I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around this... I want to return a field called "Date" to "Table1" from "Table2" using a common field of "Ticket" but i keep breaking things.. Kind of like a Vlookup but without the first column restriction...

Thanks in advance Dean

this should work if you input it into table 1 column you want to populate =INDEX(Table2[Date],MATCH(Table2[Ticket],[Ticket],0)).
You have to make sure your ranges are tables (relevant table called Table2 for this to work) and when writing the formula select the relevant columns by hovering cursor over column headings, until the arrow turns black.
