Hello Excellearner,

Given that the row labels and column headers are identical in each table you could just use an OFFSET function in place of the INDEX range, i.e.

=IF(COUNT(MATCH(C4,'data elements'!B3:K3,0)*MATCH(E3,'data elements'!A4:A9,0)),INDEX(OFFSET('data elements'!B4:K9,MATCH(B2,'data elements'!A2:A22,0)-1,0),MATCH(E3,'data elements'!A4:A9,0),MATCH(C4,'data elements'!B3:K3,0)),0)

If you want the headers to be different for any table then it would get more complicated.....

I was looking at a slightly different approach, too.

This version should give the same results but would also allow you to vary the header values (although it assumes that the all the tables will still be the same size)

=LOOKUP(9.9E+307,IF({1,0},0,VLOOKUP(E3,OFFSET('data elements'!A4:K9,MATCH(B2,'data elements'!A2:A22,0)-1,0),MATCH(C4,OFFSET('data elements'!B3:K3,MATCH(B2,'data elements'!A2:A22,0)-1,0),0)+1,0)))
