Hello,

Does anyone know of a formula that would be similar to a Vlookup but instead of looking in just one column it would look within a range?

I think you will have to add a new column which will be a concatenation of the values in your range, and use this column for lookup

Hello,

if you want to combine two criteria, you can use something like

=INDEX(C1:C10,MATCH(H2&H3,INDEX(A1:A10&B1:B10,0),0))

see attached. The formula will find the match where column A = green and column B = 3
