Hi,

I want to look up values in the blue boxes in the attached sheet.

Items are sold to three market types - under two different price settings. How to look up say for a specific item [sk1] so that both columns under a market type is shown.

Like look up (sk1) returns only prices for a specific market. I tried to create named ranges but how this could be achieved?
Invoice table will show the two price sets :( p1 and p2) for only those items that corresponds to a specific item and a specific market type.

Example:
invoice2      sk1      conventional market       $    45.00        $    50.00

What formula can be put in those two blue boxes to do this?

The exact formula required will depend on your worksheet layout. For the sample workbook, I used:
=VLOOKUP($A4,$F$5:$L$1000,MATCH($B4,$G$3:$L$3,0)+1,FALSE)      for cell C4. Returns the P1 price for a SKU in A4 and market in B4
=VLOOKUP($A4,$F$5:$L$1000,MATCH($B4,$G$3:$L$3,0)+2,FALSE)      for cell C4. Returns the P2 price for a SKU in A4 and market in B4. Note the +2 in formula.
