Excel Formula Alternative

I have the following Excel formula, however, it is taking hours to calculate. Is there any alternative?

=IFERROR(INDEX($J$3:$J$27,MATCH(1,INDEX((G$3:G$18=C8)*(H$3:H$18<=B8)*(I$3:I$18>=B8),),FALSE)),0)

Thank you-
Kelly

There is nothing in this formula which would take hours to calculate.
Are you having too many formulas on the sheet?
How many rows of data you are having on the sheet?

I would think that the amount of data is the problem. If each row contains formulas then they are all having to calculate.

Yes each row has that index formula. Any other way to write it?

according to your formula. it is only few rows and it should not take more. the problem could be if you are using the whole column in the reference.

my preference is that you convert your ranges to Excel tables which has the feature of dynamic range nature and i would use =LOOKUP(2,1/(G$3:G$18=C8)/(H$3:H$18<=B8)/(I$3:I$18>=B8),$J$3:$J$270)  formula instead of the index and index and match.
