I have written a Lookup formula to assign a risk to likelihood and consequence sores.  But the results are back to front.
Refer attached file, in which formulas are in first sheet, and matrix is in 2nd sheet.
Can you help fix.

You have the Row and Column in the INDEX formula around the wrong way (2nd and 3rd parameter).

e.g. C2 should be:
=IFERROR(INDEX(Matrix!$C$5:$G$9,MATCH($B3,Matrix!$B$5:$B$9,0),MATCH($A3,Matrix!$C$4:$G$4,0)),"")
