Index w/ Match variables

Hello,

The formula I'm using is:

=index(WR!A:G,match(A1&A2,WR!A:A&WR!F:F,0),2)

This works fine so long as the values in A1 and A2 are fixed values.

But what I'd like to do is replace A2 something that says "anything greater than zero." Fiddling with the match_type just returns the wrong values.

Thanks in advance.

Try changing it around like so:

=INDEX(WR!A:G,MATCH(1,INDEX((WR!A:A>0)*(WR!F:F=A2),0),0),2)

note, this formula doesn't need CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER confirmation, but it is an array formula and so you should minimize the range sizes for better efficiency.
