Hi, need some help using match and index function on blank cells. Currently, a blank cell match gives #N/A

Have attached an example

=INDEX(A9:D11,MATCH(A2,A9:A9,0),MATCH(A1,A8:D8,0))

My current formula for matching Ref Code returns value as a match, but for column B is still a blank match but holds an error value in cell

=INDEX(A9:D11,MATCH(B2,B9,0),MATCH(B1,A8:D8,0))

Anyone know how to embed a logical test into this equation to determine whether cells are blank or not?

Thanks

This isn't really making sense and the formulas seem nonsensical. If you want a Blank for a MATCH that gives an N/A just use

=IFERROR(yourformula,"")
