Shouldn't it be like this?
=INDEX(Data!9:9,MATCH(C2,Data!3:3))

Further to Neeraj's comment, to get an exact match on the date use:

=INDEX(Data!9:9,MATCH(C2,Data!3:3,0))

Omitting the last argument may return the wrong value if an exact match on the date is not found.

You could also use SUMIF function:

=SUMIF(Data!3:3,$C$2,Data!9:9)

Try changing the cell format.

Excel will try and format a cell based on the source cells and will occasionally do it incorrectly.
