Add headers to columns A & B for Date and Period and the same headers above your criteria cells, then you can use:

=DGET(A1:G11,E16,F15:G16)

Where A1:G11 is table including new headers as described above, E16 is cell containing Currency and F15:G16 contains headers the same as Date and period columns and the date and period criteria.

Thanks

Hi Utredning,


copy past this formula & click to fx bar & then all keys to gather ctrl+shift+enter.
=INDEX(A1:G11,MATCH(F16&G16,A1:A11&B1:B11,0),MATCH(E16,A1:G1,0))

DGET only works because of the format of the data.

If multiple entries match the criteria specified then formula will give an error, whereas I believe INDEX will return first entry that matches.

For purpose of clarification for  both, syntax of DGET (and other Dfunction) formula:

=DGET(Database,Field,Criteria)

In this instance, the currency happens to be a Field header so can be used to determine the column but needed the other headers added to identify fields or combinations thereof.

Thanks
