I download a table that has many service dates, but I only need the U7 Rehire date.  The problem is that for various employees, that U7 date might be in different Columns.

I need a formula that will only return the U7 date in one column

Try this formula in row 2 and fill down.
=INDEX(A2:M2,1,MATCH("U7",A2:M2,0)+1)

Open in new window

Note: you will need to format the column as a date

or
=TEXT(INDEX(A2:M2,1,MATCH("U7",A2:M2,0)+1),"m/d/yyyy")

Open in new window
