# Negate INDEX/MATCH result based on another Cell

Slowly getting there with this VBA/Excel "Magic" but stuck with this problem:

I have an INDEX/MATCH formula which returns the results for Min values, based on the input criteria as shown

=INDEX(\$L\$73:\$S\$90,MATCH(\$R\$10,\$J\$73:\$J\$90,0),MATCH(\$N\$4,\$L\$72:\$S\$72,0))

However, I wondered if there was a way I can adjust this to negate the values if \$D10 = "Loss"?

Many Thanks All for any help/suggestions.

Can you AutoAverage in Excel?
There is a drop-down next to the AutoSum symbol. Open the drop-down to choose AVERAGE, COUNT, MAX, or MIN

Thanks, but this returns a blank and I need the returned value to be negative when its a "loss".

Try

=INDEX(\$L\$73:\$S\$90,MATCH(\$R\$10,\$J\$73:\$J\$90,0),MATCH(\$N\$4,\$L\$72:\$S\$72,0))*IF(\$D10="Loss",-1,1)

Fabulous Work!

Thanks ever so much

You're welcome.
