# Lookup

##### Board Regular
If I have a range like this in columns A-C -

A B C
1 2 34.6
1 3 5.3
1 4 19.7
1 5 8.6
1 6 17.3
1 7 7.6
1 8 8.1
2 3 0
2 4 138
2 5 0
2 6 0
2 7 138
2 8 138
3 4 46.1
3 5 15.3
3 6 69.2
3 7 9.8
3 8 12.5
4 5 138
4 6 138
4 7 69.2
4 8 0

And in range d2:e2 I have this

D E
3 7

How do I lookup that 3 7 and return the value corresponding, ie 9.8?

A common idiom, which needs to be confirmed with control+shift+enter...

=INDEX(\$C\$2:\$C\$23,MATCH(1,IF(\$A\$2:\$A\$23=D2,IF(\$B\$2:\$B\$23=E2,1)),0))

where D2 houses 3 and E2 7.

Also, possibly because the (sub)ranges are in ascending order...

=LOOKUP(E2,OFFSET(\$B\$2,MATCH(D2,\$A\$2:\$A\$23,0)-1,0,MATCH(D2,\$A\$2:\$A\$23,1)-MATCH(D2,\$A\$2:\$A\$23,0),2))

Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
