Lookup 2 cells

Can an expert assist me with this lookup please.

I need to look up 'A' and 'B' on sheet 2 and return 'C' from sheet 1 [range is Data]

I have shown in the attached spreadsheet what the results should be for the first 3, i.e.

A      GBP         XYZ
B      EUR         XYZ
C      CAD         ABC

thank you

in Sheet2, cell C2, try use formula:

={ INDEX(Sheet1!C:C, MATCH(1,(Sheet1!A:A=Sheet2!A2)*(Sheet1!B:B=Sheet2!B2),0)) }

Open in new window


and drag down formula accordingly. pls note this is an array formula.

put this and enter with control shift enter  =INDEX(Sheet1!C:C,MATCH(Sheet2!A2&Sheet2!B2,Sheet1!A:A&Sheet1!B:B,0))

Hi again,

I have placed the following array formulae within cell [C2] of the [Sheet2] worksheet, then copied it down column [C] to cell [C31]:
=INDEX(Sheet1!A:C,MATCH(1,(Sheet1!A:A=A2)*(Sheet1!B:B=B2),0),3)

The entry of an array formula is not just use of [Return]/[Enter], but [CTRL]+[SHIFT]+[ENTER].


Further information about array formulae can be read here:

I have attached your original workbook with the formula applied as summarised above.

Jagwarman,

in case if you do not want to use CONTROL SHIFT ENTER. then you can use this formula

=LOOKUP(2,1/(Sheet1!A:A=Sheet2!A2)/(Sheet1!B:B=Sheet2!B2),Sheet1!C:C)
