Is column G the SUM of column 1 & column F?
Add you calculation then drag it down...

You may have to populate column A with the values of each section; otherwise it will use A2 for each.

Can you please explain what the 9^9 is actually doing there?

9^9 returns just a large number which is not supposed to be in lookup column and with match_type with True, Match finds the last number in the lookup column.
