Hi Experts,

Trying to have Excel return a value in a table based on lookup from two separate tables.

    So, populate col J with "ABC IDs from Tab "ABC IDs"  
    I suspect a combination of columns F and I, but is it possible in vLookup..?
    I also heard of "Index + Match" (too complex)

Thankx
Yan

either you put a column into ABC IDs that computes the concatenated value of Track and Region, and use vlookup on that, or you may try sumifs:

in concrete, the SUMIFS expression to put into I3 would be:
=SUMIFS('ABC IDs'!D$2:D$25;'ABC IDs'!B$2:B$25;Detail!H3;'ABC IDs'!C$2:C$25;Detail!E3)
and then just copy down

The same SUMIFS formula can be written with the help of Index/Match like below.....

On Details Sheet
In I3
=INDEX('ABC IDs'!$D$3:$D$25,MATCH(E3&H3,INDEX('ABC IDs'!$C$3:$C$25&'ABC IDs'!$B$3:$B$25,0),0))

Open in new window

and copy down.

PS. Please set the Calculation Options to Automatic by going to the Formula Tab --> Calculation Options --> Choose Automatic so that when you copy down the formula, it gets updated automatically for each row accordingly.

Thanks much fellas...  It seems the Index Match did the trick... from Subodh Tiwari (Neeraj).  It was not a field to be aggregated..
