I don't see how this function works at all, even if there are discrete values in column BA.  Is this function copied down in order to return the additional values in BG and BH?  You'll need to provide more details here.

One problem is that - if the SUMPRODUCT function returns a zero value - that makes the row argument for the INDEX function zero.  When that happens, you'll get an invalid result.  But, instead of Excel throwing an error (which it should), it can give you unusual results.  Sometimes, it gives you the row on which the INDEX function resides - sometimes it's a value one less.

I'm still not sure what you are trying to achieve here.  The two lists in BG and BH are identical and there are no values in BB, which I assume you want to return.  Just need to know the proper relationships and what they mean.

Try

=INDEX($BB$2:$BB$774,MATCH($AQ$2&$BJ5,INDEX($BA$2:$BA$774&$BG$2:$BG$774,0,0),0))
