What's to be used to determine which group of values the result should be taken from?

For example in B9 we would be looking for 85, but from which group of numbers in row 3?

All of them. Please follow my example in cells B8 - M8. So for example, the first section G3 - BF 3 should populate column B or cells B8 - B62; the next section BH3 - DG 3 should populate column C or cells C8 - C62 and so on. Hope this helps!

thanks

I put the cell ranges into B5:M6 using this formula:
=ADDRESS(2,7+52*(COLUMN()-2))

Open in new window


These are referenced with the formula:
=HLOOKUP($A8,INDIRECT(B$5):INDIRECT(B$6),2,FALSE)

Open in new window


It takes ages to calculate on my computer though so I haven't copy pasted everywhere. It's the same formula copied to all cells though (it takes into account changes in rows/columns appropriately).

What do you mean 'all of them'? All of what?

Perhaps you can use the formula I posted for you previous question, with a minor adjustment.

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

You can probably speed up the processing by hardcoding instead of using indirects
...but then you need a new formula for each column...

e.g:
Col1   =HLOOKUP($A8,$G$2:$BF$3,2,FALSE)
Col2   =HLOOKUP($A8,$BG$2:$DF$3,2,FALSE)
Col3   =HLOOKUP($A8,$DG$2:$FF$3,2,FALSE)
...

You can use this formula and copy it down and across.

=INDEX($G$3:$XQ$3,1,(COLUMN()-2)*53+MATCH($A8,$G$2:$BF$2,0))

Your spreadsheet, however is overloaded with the tons of pictures which is hampering the performance severely. You will get much better performance if you get rid of the pictures.
