Cross reference in excel

Hello!

column A has numbers that are arranged in certain way and can not be changed.                                                      
Cells F3 - XQ3 have data that needs to be linked with the data from column A.                                                      
I manually populated cells B8 - M8 to show what needs to be done.                                                      
It is very time consuming to do it cell by cell. I am wondering if there is a formula that can help me expedite these calculations.                                                      
thanks!

Try this in A8 an copy across/down.

=INDEX(OFFSET($A$2,1,(CODE(B$6)-CODE("A"))*53+6,1,52),,MATCH($A8,OFFSET($A$2,,(CODE(B$6)-CODE("A"))*53+6,1,52),0))

Here is it using a VBA function.


Public Function CrossRef01(rngVal As Range) As Long

Dim arrXrefRange(12) As String

arrXrefRange(0) = "G2:BF2"  'A
arrXrefRange(1) = "BH2:DG2" 'B
arrXrefRange(2) = "DI2:FH2" 'C
arrXrefRange(3) = "FJ2:HI2" 'D
arrXrefRange(4) = "HK2:JJ2" 'E
arrXrefRange(5) = "JL2:LK2" 'F
arrXrefRange(6) = "LM2:NL2" 'G
arrXrefRange(7) = "NN2:PM2" 'H
arrXrefRange(8) = "PO2:RN2" 'I
arrXrefRange(9) = "RP2:TO2" 'J
arrXrefRange(10) = "TQ2:VP2" 'K
arrXrefRange(11) = "VR2:XQ2" 'L

'Search the range
For Each cell In Range(arrXrefRange(rngVal.Column - 2))
  If Range("A" & rngVal.Row).Value = cell.Value Then
    CrossRef01 = Sheet1.Cells(cell.Row + 1, cell.Column).Value
    Exit For
  End If
Next


End Function
