Hello Excellearner,

Your last 2 MATCH functions are the wrong way round, in INDEX the row reference comes before column, so you need this version

=IF(COUNT(MATCH(C2,'date elements'!B3:K3,0)*MATCH(E1,'date elements'!A4:A9,0)),INDEX('date elements'!B4:K9,MATCH(E1,'date elements'!A4:A9,0),MATCH(C2,'date elements'!B3:K3,0)),0)

regards, barry
