You have not provided the actual formula. The second match formula contains insufficient arguments and is not accepted by excel.

You will have a better response if you upload a sample file.

Ssaqib...worked it out....

How would I amend to handle #n/a error. ..

=if(isna(index($a$2:$ae$17,match(a33, $a$33:$a$42,0),match(c31,$c$32:$j$32)),"",index($a$2:$ae$17,match(a33, $a$33:$a$42,0),match($c$32:$j$32)))

That formula should be

=IF(ISNA(INDEX($A$2:$AE$17,MATCH(A33, $A$33:$A$42,0),MATCH(C31,$C$32:$J$32))),"",INDEX($A$2:$AE$17,MATCH(A33, $A$33:$A$42,0),MATCH(C31,$C$32:$J$32)))

if you have 2007 or later you may simplify it to
