Hello sandramac,

I put this formula in sheet2 A4 and copied across

=LOOKUP(2,1/(Sheet1!$A1:$A100=$A2)/(Sheet1!$B1:$B100=$B2),Sheet1!A1:A100)

where A2 and B2 contain the criteria

see attached

regards, barry

Wouldn't the range need to be rows 175 -> 250?

=Lookup(2,1/(Sheet1$A175:$A250=$A2)/(Sheet1!$B175:$B250=$B2),Sheet1!A175:A250)

or could also be written as:

=Lookup(2,1/(Sheet1$A175:$A250="700mb")/(Sheet1!$B175:$B250="RH  (%)"),Sheet1!A175:A250)

?

Hello Dave,

Well, on the attachment the data was in the first 20 rows so I went with that, I often add extra rows just to show that the formula can cope with the blank cells, obviously the ranges can be adjusted as required as long as they are all the same size.

regards, barry
