Hi all,

I'm trying not use the concatenate formula to achieve this goal.

I have two sheets of data, set out as follows.

Sheet 1 contains data that needs to have a cost attributed to it, depending on two variables.

  • Place (A:A)_____Size (B:B)____Cost (C:C)
    Bedford_________1/2 Page______?
    Cambridge_______3 Pages________?

I need to add the cost from a seperate sheet, which is laid out thus...

  • Place_____1/2 Page____1 Page_____2 Pages_____3 Pages
    Bedford______£310______£415______£560_______£670
    Cambridge______£285_____£370______£460______£580
What formula would i need to use, to populate the cell where the ? is, i.e £310.

Thanks in advance for any help

Welcome to the board

Assuming your first table has each combination only once here's one way.....

assuming your second table starts at A1 then in B2 use

=SUMPRODUCT(--($A2=sheet1!$A$1:$A$100),--(B$1=sheet1!$B$1:$B$100),sheet1!$C$1:$C$100)

copied across and down

Thanks this helps,

but it is the wrong way round!

What I ideally need to do is take the data from the rows to populate the top, where the ? are, with the formula given it works in reverse.

Do you know how to reverse this process?

OK, sorry, I see what you mean. Then assuming the same setup in C2 sheet1 use

=INDEX(sheet2!B$2:K$10,MATCH(A2,sheet2!A$2:A$10,0),MATCH(B2,sheet2!B$1:K$1,0))

copied down

adjust the ranges depending on the extent of your table in sheet2
