Index Match not returning correct values

I am attempting to create a xls that allows the user to input a Emp Id under the correct Manager category that will lookup the Manager name for another worksheet.  What am I missing.  I have included a sample file.

Data extract sheet the user inputs the ID and return the name, except my version is not returning the correct manager name, except for col D:E.

What am I doing wrong:

In every one of the formulas INDEX('EMP LIST'!$A:$A,MATCH(1,'EMP LIST'!H2,0)) returns an error so the formula actually returns the value from 'EMP LIST'$A:$A that corresponds to the row the formula is in.

What IDs/values are you actually trying to lookup?
Karen SchaeferBI ANALYSTAuthor Commented:
If the user enters the value (ID) in Col A ManagerID I want the correlated name displayed in Col b and the same for each of the different ID columns.SR_MANAGER_ID col(D)
Col A ManagerID , should return Col(B) - Manager Name
Col(d) - Sr_Manager_ID, should return Col(E) - Sr Manager Name
,DIRECTOR_ID (col F) should return Col(g) -  Director Name

So If I entered, say, 132565 in column A  you would expect to see ALLEN, JEFFERY in column B?

If that's the case this INDEX/MATCH formula, in B2 and copied down, would work, though it could also be done with VLOOKUP.


That formula can also be copied to columns E and G to get the manager name for the SR_MANAGER_ID and DIRECTOR_ID.
