I am trying to use an index match formula that references a range of cells on another tab, but cant seem to get the syntax right. See the attached example.

I want to index Column C on the Projects tab with a Code on the Summary Tab to return the amount in column D (shaded yellow) for the respective Code.

I am trying to make an example without actual data. I am trurning values, but they are for the incorrect amounts so I figured it might be better if I just start over.

Here is the prodcution formula i was using that returns incorrect totals :=INDEX(Projects!$U$10:$U$275,MATCH($B4,$B$500:$B$1500,0))

Use this formula:

   =SUMIFS(Projects!C10:C29,Projects!A$10:A$29,A4,Projects!B$10:B$29,B4)

OK, I know I did a poor job of explaing so here is another attempt. On the Summary tab, the name has a drop down. I have the index match set for colum b and column C. I wanted to have the same for column D. Colum D would ference the Projects tab, C10:C29 for the cost figure that relates to that specific code.

For Example:  On the summary tab, If I select project 130, it returns Code 91008, Status "Closed" and the Amount (from the Projects tab) should be $1,008.

Try this formula:

=SUMIFS(Projects!C$10:C$29,Projects!A$10:A$29,A4,Projects!B$10:B$29,B4)

are you looking for a vlookup?

try this:

=VLOOKUP(A4,Projects!A10:C29,3,FALSE) and drag down

this index formula works as well:

=INDEX(Projects!$C$10:$C$29,MATCH(Summary!A$4,Projects!$A$10:$A$29,0),0)

Accepting multiple solutions as a couple of worked, just the index worked a lilttle better because of grammar differences in the projects names on the production sheet.

Thanks for all of the support!

Your MATCH array is different to your INDEX array so you will  return a mismatched results.

I believe what you want to do is this:-

=INDEX(Projects!$C$10:$C$275,MATCH(B4,Projects!$B$10:$B$275,0))

It goes in D4 on Summary and copy down.

INDEX creates a list of values that you want to return (in this case the Values from Projects in column C) then returns a value from the row you specify which is where MATCH comes in.

MATCH gives you the row number that a specific value appears in a INDEX. So you give it the value you are looking for (B4) then the search index (the Codes from Projects in column B)
