in the attached ss i am trying to track attendees to a meeting.

I need to match the names and the dates and return YES/NO

I have highlighted in yellow the names that need looking up

are one to one, straight matches, for the rest you need to find FCC in the appropriate range

So BMC [C22:C30] returns "no" as the FCC did not attend

So i suppose the find function would need to be utilised

Many thanks

so for are you checking only column C to find if there is a Yes in the Attended column for each date?  And for the other, you are checking first column A, then column C for FCC and then Yes in attended column?

Ok, first, change the dates in row 3 to be real dates.  You can then format them as you wish them to appear.

Then in D64:

=IF(COUNTIFS($C$5:$C$61,$C64,INDEX($D$5:$AU$61,0,MATCH(D$63,$D$3:$AU$3,0)+1),"Yes")>0,"Yes","No")

copied to next row and across the columns

in D66:

=IF(INDEX(INDEX(INDEX($D$5:$D$61,MATCH(LEFT($C66,FIND(" ",$C66)-1),$A$5:$A$61,0)):$AU$61,0,MATCH(D$63,$D$3:$AU$3,0)+1),MATCH("FCC",INDEX($C$5:$C$61,MATCH(LEFT($C66,FIND(" ",$C66)-1),$A$5:$A$61,0)):$C$61,0))="Yes","Yes","No")

copied down and across the columns

Note:  You have set conditional formatting to "white out" any "No" values...
