Hi all,

I believe I've done something similar to my current problem but I can't quite figure this one out. Would appreciate any advice!

I'm trying to match 2 values in different columns and then return the adjacent value from a third column. Hopefully this demonstrates it clearly.

titlevaluetitlesvalue
greengreen1
orangeblue2
greenred3
redorange4

<tbody>
</tbody>


I'd like to create a formula for column B that matches column A against column C and returns the corresponding value in column D. For instance, B2 would equal 1, B3 would equal 4, B4 would equal 1, and B5 would equal 3. Hope that makes sense. Thanks in advance for your help!
