    Default Index Match Match.... It just wont work :(

    I am an avid VLookup user and have recently learned of all the benefits of Index Match and Index Match Match.... I just cant seem to get it to work on my workbook!
    I would be extremely grateful if someone would be able to help me.

    On tab named 'Database' I have a table of data in cells A4:EV7 (limited data at the moment but it will grow in time).
    The client name is in column A and the headers are in row 4. I have named the Column A:A 'ClientName' and named the row A4:EV4 'Headers'.

    On another tab, I have a table with headers across the top (Row 5) and Client Names down the left side (column A).

    I would like to use Index Match Match to populate my table.


    I have tried the below formula - returning #REF ! as a value and I cannot work out why!

    =INDEX(Database!$A$4:$EV$7,MATCH(A8,ClientName,0),MATCH(B5,Headers,0))

    I have tried the MATCH formula on its on and this has worked.
    IE =MATCH(A6,ClientName,0) and =MATCH(B5,Headers,0)
    But it fails each time I try to add the Index Function.

    I have also tried to remove one of the Match formulae
    =INDEX(Database!$A$4:$EV$7,MATCH(A8,ClientName,0),5)

    Thank you in advance

    Maybe...

    =INDEX(Database!$A$4:$EV$7,MATCH(A8,Database!$A$4:$A$7,0),MATCH(B5,Database!$A$4:EV$4,0))
