Index & Match in Excel

I am trying to use Index and Match to lookup a value in my worksheet but I'm having trouble getting the formula to work correctly. Here's the scenario

Column F is the lookup column that I want to return the value from.

Column B is the first column that I need to match up exactly to my value in cell L6. The next column is Column C and I need to have the value in cell M6 be greater than or equal to column C.

This is what I have so far and it works but only if the value in column C is exact. I need it to be modified to say it either equals the value or is greater than the value in column C.


{=INDEX('Raw Matl-CT'!$F$6:$F$200,MATCH(1,('Quote Pricing Calculator'!$L$6='Raw Matl-CT'!$B$6:$B$200)*('Quote Pricing Calculator'!$M$6='Raw Matl-CT'!$C$6:$C$200),0))}

Open in new window


Column B            Column C            Column F

303                       .1250                    $1.00
303                       .1300                    $2.00
303                       .1310                    $3.00
303                       .1875                    $4.00
303                       .2500                    $5.00
303                       .3750                    $6.00


Value in Cell L6 = 303
Value in Cell M6 = .3125

The value that should be returned in the above example should be: $5.00 since the value in M6 is greater than .2500

HI,
pls try as an array formula (Ctrl-Shift-Enter)

=INDEX('Raw Matl-CT'!$F$6:$F$200,MATCH('Quote Pricing Calculator'!$M$6,--(('Quote Pricing Calculator'!$L$6='Raw Matl-CT'!$B$6:$B$200)*('Raw Matl-CT'!$C$6:$C$200)),1))

That didn't work. No matter what value I put in M6 the value in the cell where the formula is doesn't change. It's picking a value that isn't even close to the row it should be returning.

Try this

=INDEX('Raw Matl-CT'!$F$6:$F$200,COUNTIFS('Raw Matl-CT'!$B$6:$B$200,'Quote Pricing Calculator'!$L$6,'Raw Matl-CT'!$C$6:$C$200,"<"&'Quote Pricing Calculator'!$M$6),1)

Nope. Same issue. It just grabs a value not even close and then doesn't change no matter what I enter in M6 for a value.

It seems to work somewhat but when you put .2500 in it the price should be $3.01 but it's showing it as $3.53. It should be equal to or greater to the value in column C.

Try the following:
=INDEX(F2:F7,MATCH(1,INDEX((B2:B7=L6)*(C2:C7>=M6),0),0),1)

I just modified your sample file to add = to the last match and it works fine. It needed to be equal to OR greater than. Thanks for the help!

Lawrence: You could also try mine. Simpler and includes EQUAL OR.
