Formula referencing the results of a multi-column Vlookup

I have a data range along the lines of:-

               A                 B                   C                  D               E                
                               Jan-14        Feb 14       Mar 14       Apr 14
 1         AAA                1%              2%             1.5%             2%
 2        BBB                2%              1%              1%                2%
 3        CCC                3%              2%              1.5%             3%
 4        DDD               1%              2%              1%               1.5%

I need to calculate the compounded return for various periods for each row. Eg to calculate the return for BBB between Feb-14 and Apr 14 (inclusive) I could use the formula =FVSCHEDULE(1,C2:E2)-1 manually  - However I need the formula to look up the value in column B within the range along the lines of a vlookup function

For example:-

The following vlookup calculates the sum for the selected period:-


How do I do exactly the same but instead of the sum calculate the compounded return of the selected period?

Thanks !

How about using an offset function?
