# Product of Index & matches - need help to make more efficient

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for some help to simplify the following:

1) I have 1 sheet with a large table A1:D4 showing sales volume (Mt) per productcode (column A) and per months of June, July and August (row 1)

 June July August ProductCode1 100 50 200 ProductCode2 150 80 120 ProductCode3 200 90 350

<tbody>
</tbody>

2) I have a 2nd sheet with a large table A1:E4 showing the % of each ingredients (row 1) that the productcodes (column A) are composed.

 Ingredient1 Ingredient2 Ingredient3 Ingredient4 ProductCode1 20% 5% 0% 75% ProductCode2 80% 20% 0% 0% ProductCode3 10% 20% 30% 40%

<tbody>
</tbody>

Goal: I'm looking to summarize in 1 (total) cell for each month, the volume (Mt) of the ingredients needed.

So far I managed only to work out ingredient per ingredient, month per month by pulling down -and right- something like the following formula.
Unfortunately this takes up more space than the original tables themselves.

INDEX(Sheet2!B2:E4;MATCH("ProductCode1";Sheet2!A2:A4;0);MATCH("Ingredient1";Sheet2!B1:E1;0))*INDEX(Sheet1!B2:D4;MATCH("June";Sheet1!B1:D1;0))

Would anyone have a better solution, that would allow me to summarize the ingredient volume (Mt) in 1 cell per month?
Thanks in advance for anyone willing to help out!

The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

Maybe something like this

Sheet2

 A​ B​ C​ D​ E​ 1​ Ingredient1​ Ingredient2​ Ingredient3​ Ingredient4​ 2​ ProductCode1​ 20%​ 5%​ 0%​ 75%​ 3​ ProductCode2​ 80%​ 20%​ 0%​ 0%​ 4​ ProductCode3​ 10%​ 20%​ 30%​ 40%​

Sheet1
I reversed the order of the products in column A to make the test more real.

 A​ B​ C​ D​ E​ F​ G​ H​ I​ J​ 1​ June​ July​ August​ Ingredient1​ Ingredient2​ Ingredient3​ Ingredient4​ 2​ ProductCode3​ 200​ 90​ 350​ June​ 160​ 75​ 60​ 155​ 3​ ProductCode2​ 150​ 80​ 120​ July​ 83​ 36,5​ 27​ 73,5​ 4​ ProductCode1​ 100​ 50​ 200​ August​ 171​ 104​ 105​ 290​

Array formula in G2 copied across and down
=SUMPRODUCT(INDEX(\$B\$2:\$D\$4,0,MATCH(\$F2,\$B\$1:\$D\$1,0)),INDEX(INDEX(Sheet2!\$B\$2:\$E\$4,0,MATCH(G\$1,Sheet2!\$B\$1:\$E\$1,0)),N(IF(1,MATCH(\$A\$2:\$A\$4,Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$A\$4,0)))))
confirmed with Ctrl+Shift+Enter, not just Enter

Hope this helps

Fantastic! Could attach and if(and( statement before it with 2 criteria? For example these products might be produced on different lines, so for the whole range in sheet 1 I would want to if(and(E:E="line1"; D:D="colour black"); then followed by the array?

This should complicate the formula. Could you provide an example along with the expected results?

By the way, we can simplify the original formula with a different configuration and as long as the product codes in Sheet2 column A are in ascending order.
Something like,

Sheet1

 A​ B​ C​ D​ E​ F​ G​ H​ I​ 1​ June​ July​ August​ June​ July​ August​ 2​ ProductCode3​ 200​ 90​ 350​ Ingredient1​ 160​ 83​ 171​ 3​ ProductCode2​ 150​ 80​ 120​ Ingredient2​ 75​ 36,5​ 104​ 4​ ProductCode1​ 100​ 50​ 200​ Ingredient3​ 60​ 27​ 105​ 5​ Ingredient4​ 155​ 73,5​ 290​

Regular formula in G2 copied across and down
=SUMPRODUCT(B\$2:B\$4,LOOKUP(\$A\$2:\$A\$4,Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$A\$4,INDEX(Sheet2!\$B\$2:\$E\$4,0,MATCH(\$F2,Sheet2!\$B\$1:\$E\$1,0))))

Hi Marcelo,

Would look something like the below. To keep it simple the results would be the same as before, but I would be able to exclude ProductCodes from the array when they 1) are not produced on line 1 and 2) don't have the colour black.
In essence, I only look for the ingredient volume outcome of all products where those criteria are met:

 A​ B​ C​ D​ E​ F​ G​ H​ I​ 1​ Line Colour June July August June July August 2​ ProductCode3 1 Black 200​ 90​ 350​ Ingredient1 160​ 83​ 171​ 3​ ProductCode2 1 Black 150​ 80​ 120​ Ingredient2 75​ 36,5​ 104​ 4​ ProductCode1 1 Black 100​ 50​ 200​ Ingredient3 60​ 27​ 105​ 5​ ProductCode4 2 Orange 20 80 20 Ingredient4 155​ 73,5​ 290​ 6 ProductCode5 1 Blue 30 30 30

New version - doesn't require Product Codes in ascending order (Column A of Sheet2)

Thanks Marcelo,

It's not yet working, wondering if I'm doing something wrong.
Could something potentially be missed around the index match piece of the formula?
Notice it's not picking up those 2 ranges in recognizable colours in the formula (but just guessing)

Thanks a lot for your help so far!

Worked perfectly for me.

What you mean by not working? An error, wrong result,...?
Could you show us again the table in Sheet2?
