I have a report that is extracted from an accounting software a sample is in the tab called Act vs Bud. I want to isolate specific data so I am using the Index and match to capture data, the only problem is that I need not only the Month (Actual) but also the Budget column next to the data. As you can see when I tried using the same formula for Budget is basically repeating the first one over and over. What I need is to bring in the Jul 12 data and the value on the next column. Is there a way that I can tell excel to bring in the value of the column next to the Month?

use the same formula as with the month, but move the index over 2 columns to the budget position... first one done for you here:

=INDEX('Act vs Bud'!$I$2:$ES$401,MATCH($A9,'Act vs Bud'!$A$2:$A$401,0),MATCH(B$8,'Act vs Bud'!$I$2:$ES$2,0)+2)
