Hello Experts!

I'm having trouble getting the correct value in Quotation!B15. The formula should reference Freight!AE1:AI1000 , Airport (Quotation!B10) and Weight (Quotation!B13)

Thanks for your help!

Your current formula is problematic:

=INDEX(Freight!$AE$2:$AI$1001,MATCH(Quotation!$B$13,Freight!$AE:$AE,0),MATCH(Quotation!$B$10,Freight!$AG$2:$AI$2,0))

Note how you make the reference table start in row 2, but in the first MATCH expression you start in Row 1 because you use the entire column.

For starters:

=INDEX(Freight!$AE$2:$AI$1001,MATCH(Quotation!$B$13,Freight!$AE$2:$AE$1001,0),MATCH(Quotation!$B$10,Freight!$AG$2:$AI$2,0))
