# XLOOKUP?

I am trying to find an excel formula to lookup an amount in one column based on a date that is between a date range in two columns. For example, column A has a start date, column B has an end date, and column E has the amount I need to find. Is there a way to use XLOOKUP for this? What would the formula look like if XLOOKUP will work? Or do I have to use a really long nested IF statement? I have Excel 365.

Can you set up a sample excel file for testing?

This link describes how to look up values based upon date ranges. Think it might help, but may be better to see example as Saqib suggests..

The sheet I am referencing is the Fuel Surcharge sheet. On the Outside Hauling sheet, I need a formula in the "Mart FSC" column to pull the "Difference" amount that corresponds with the date in the "Date" column. Does that make sense?

Thank you for your help! The XLOOKUP formula worked, and I was able to apply it to another column with a similar situation.

Can also use standard VLOOKUP formula:

=VLOOKUP([@Date],Table1[#All],5,TRUE)

Fourth parameter in VLOOKUP allows for approximate match, in this case finds highest date that is not greater than look up value; in your example all dates are 2 March so will return value from 1 March as that is highest without going over.

=VLOOKUP([@Date],Table1[#A

Fourth parameter in VLOOKUP allows for approximate match, in this case finds highest date that is not greater than look up value; in your example all dates are 2 March so will return value from 1 March as that is highest without going over.
