Hello. I need to populate a cell based on values in two other cells. For example: In the attached file, in the first row of Sheet 1 I have a value filled in for Option 2 and for Level 3. I need cell M2 to be populated with the corresponding text for Option 2 Level 3 from Sheet 2. What would be the best way to do this? Any ideas how to start? Thanks

Hi,

pls try

=VLOOKUP(INDEX(B1:G1,1,MATCH(99999999,B2:G2),1),Sheet2!A1:E7,MATCH(99999999,I2:L2)+1,1)

Open in new window

Perfect. This works great. Is there any way I can force the text to wrap in cell M2 in case some of the text is more than a line. Tried setting the cells to Wrap text but it doesn't work
