For the ASP formula use:

=INDEX($B$1:$H$13,MATCH($L$1,$B$1:$B$13,0),MATCH($K3,$B$1:$H$1,0))

Copy down as required.

Thanks

or try HLOOKUP formula to find a mach
=HLOOKUP(K3,$B$1:$H$10,3,FALSE)

in this case it looks for value for February (based on 3 in the formula, where 3 is a row number, if you change to 2 if will return values for Janury, or 7 for June)

Using HLOOKUP you could also set the row number using MATCH:

=HLOOKUP($K3,$B$1:$H$13,MATCH($L$1,$B$1:$B$13,0),FALSE)

Likewise using VLOOKUP you could set the column using MATCH:

=VLOOKUP($L$1,$B$1:$H$13,MATCH($K3,$B$1:$H$1,0),FALSE)

Thanks

I have edited the formula I posted, so now you can just choose month from drop down menu (L1) and you will get the values for appropriate month - see attached file

@Helpfinder - what is the point of using additional helper columns when it can all be done with existing data?

Nice touch adding a the drop-down for month but this could be linked to column B rather than creating a new list.
The row can be determined by using MATCH on column B.

Thanks

@Rob Henson - the point is just to be more user friendly. if user picks the month from drop down menu it could eliminate typo errors since user can type "march" instead of "mar" and formula won´t work.

I am sure there are multiple options in excel how to achive the same result - depends on user which is most suitable for him.

Indeed, many ways to "skin a cat" as they say.

This poor cat has been well & truly skinned!
