I have two tables. A list of accounts and the other is a change log. I need to add a new column in table 1 where the value is the amount in table 2 for the correct account and correct validity period.

### Excel Facts

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for this. Not sure why I can't match some of the formula...date is within the correct range..may i know what 1 in (match(1, index...) means? thanks.

Can you give some examples that don't work as expected? Multiplying booleans returns 1 or 0. Match returns the relative position of the first 1.
