How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

You'll probably need to be more specific about what you want to do, but sounds like INDEX(MATCH would do what you want..

Here's a small example

sorry, I will explain myself a little better.

I have sheet A with dates across the top row and categories down the first column. On sheet B I need a formula that will reference the value of a cell on sheet A by date and category.
