Hey guys,


I was just wondering why this formula gives me the correct result only when I type in the values from the first rows(F3 and E3). On any other values it gives me this error - #REF!

=INDEX(G3:G8,MATCH(B1,F3:F8,0),MATCH(B2,E3:E8,0))


Any ideas?

Is your index right?

it is only 5 cells, usually its a block of cells for 2 matches

I was just testing..with one it works perfectly. But with two matches it doesn't. I think the amount of the index does't matter..
