Continuation of my original question - https://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Excel/Q_28302253.html

My original requirements have slightly changed and now consist of a 3-tier grading system. I have built out the document from the original post and have run into a couple of challenges. Using one of the formula's suggested previously (Formula #1 in the attached spreadsheet), I have attempted to adapt this to the grading system and have it partially operational. I have added a second formula (Formula #2) which achieves the desired result with easy success (note. the duplication of 'Project A' is purely for testing purposes)

Issue #1
The INDEX/MATCH (Formula #1) appears to locate the first desired value(s) in the dataset however won't move onto the next match even with new criteria. I'm unsure as to whether it's the way I structured the formula or not. I do understand the SMALL/ROW function can manipulate ascending search however the project (example. Project A) must only have one row on the Dashboard worksheet and contain and aggregate of the dataset (row #12 is incorrect and should actually appear like row #13). I however I cannot get it functioning to work. There is a UID field (identifier) in the dataset which possibly can be used to single out the rows? This one has stumped me for hours so would love to see it operational/cleaned up/working/any suggestions.

Issue #2
Formula #2 captures the results as required however the column headers for the documents in the dataset are statically referenced. As this data source will be an output via SharePoint (and refreshed at various intervals), I would prefer not to statically reference these (as the order may change etc) and instead search for their name (HLOOKUP? INDEX/MATCH?). Not sure how to integrate this into the formula.

Spreadsheet is attached for reference.

Thanks
