I am using the following as an array lookup and it works but the speed is killing me.

={IFERROR(INDEX(Data!F:F,MATCH($A$31&$C39,Data!A:A&Data!D:D,0)),0)}

I only need columns A-J and Rows 5 - 2000 with row 5 being the field name.  How can I adjust this lookup to get me more speed?

Thanks

Clearly you can limit the format to those rows,....perhaps also a different syntax, try

=IFERROR(INDEX(Data!F$5:F$2000,MATCH(1,IF(Data!A$5:A$2000=$A$31,IF(Data!D$5:D$2000=$C39,1)),0)),0)

confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER

How many of these do you have?

regards, barry

I got the syntax copied and it works but if I copy it down I get the same value in each row.

It's working OK for me......!

Sorry if you know.....how are you doing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER? You need to click in the cell with the formula and then press F2 to select - then hold down CTRL and SHIFT while pressing enter.....

Is the A31 fixed for all the formulas with C39 changing as you copy down - what about the lookup ranges does col A + Col D become B and E then C and F etc.?
