Excel index match formula not working

I am trying to use Excel's index match functions to pull data from one spreadsheet into another. For now, I am trying to get it to work with the data in a separate tab, but eventually I would like to pull the data in from a separate file.

The spreadsheet with input data looks like this:
input
The spreadsheet with the output/formulas looks like this:
output
This is the formula that I am using, but it is returning a #VALUE! error.

=INDEX(extract!$D$2:$D$2000,MATCH($B1&$A2,extract!$A$2:$A$2000&extract!$B$2:$B$2000&extract!$C$2:$C$2000,0),1)

I wouldn't use INDEX - I would use SUMIFS instead.

The code for A2 would be

=SUMIFS(input!D:D,input!C:C,$A2,input!B:B,B$1)

A2 is part of the header. The above formula belongs in cell B2. Would SUMIFS still apply?
