I need to use the match function to find values in one of several pages within a spreadsheet. Entries in Column A of the first page match the other spreadsheet page names.

Is it possible to match the value found in B3 of the 1st page within the page that corresponds with the value found in A3 using the data found in Column B:B of the matching A3 page? Match type is 0.

Thank you!

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

So, what kind of result do you want?

Looks like...

=MATCH(B3,INDIRECT("'"&A3&"'!B2:B100"),0)

Adjust the range to suit.
