Hi,

Attached is a sample spreadsheet. As written on the sheet - I would like help with the formula for the yellow cells. I am looking to match 2 date values, then return a cell value above the second date value.

Can you please help.

For getting the status for that dates you can use the following formula...

=IFERROR(INDEX($B$2:$E$2,1,MATCH(I7,$B$3:$E$3,0)),"")

Open in new window


Enclosed is your worksheet...
