Hi,

I'm looking for a solution to the problem I am having right now. Below are two entries from one tab of my spreadsheet. The unique identifier for this spreadsheet are the SP-SG-###### numbers.

I want to be able to VLOOKUP or Index/Match so that the unique identifiers from the sheet above, get added to the highlighted section on another sheet. As you can see, the 1014 is not unique because the top data has a letter attached, where the bottom does not. Additionally, since the dates are the same, combining doing a DATE&1014 is not a solution either. The Ab/Yar is not a factor in the above data so that can't be used.

Problem: My formula right now would pull SP-SG-13990 from the above table for both Ab and Yar in the below table. Is there a way to find the next unused result instead of just finding the first result?

Thank you!

You could use the following formula in E8 and copy it down


=INDEX(FILTER($E$2:$E$5,($A$2:$A$5=A8)*((LEFT($D$2:$D$5,4)*1)=D8)),COUNTIFS($A$8:A8,A8,$D$8:D8,D8))
