Hello Experts,

The attached file has a table with air freight prices.

I'm looking for compact way to look up the correct cost/kg  based on the Airport and Weight.

Thanks!

1) In E1:J1, change your weight thresholds to be actual numbers, e.g. -45, 45, 100, 300, 500, 1000

2) Apply the following custom number format to E1:J1 if you still want them to display in kg:

+0.0"kg",-0.0"kg"

3) Use a formula like this to get the shipping rate:

=INDEX(E2:J5,MATCH(O2,C2:C5,0),MATCH(O3,E1:J1))

Sample file attached.
