vlookup is used to extract information from a table based on a known value.
taking the known value, it looks up a match (or closest match) in the table and returns the value of the desired column of that table.

This single formula will also work in this particular case. Enter it in C3 and copy it down and across

=VLOOKUP($A3,$A$13:$E$21,COLUMN(),0)
