Dynamic MATCH function range

Dynamic MATCH function range

Dynamic MATCH function range


In a table of data, I'm using INDEX-MATCH to return a value from the Header_Row, based on the column of a Target_Value. With a fixed Search_Row, the formula is:

=INDEX(Header_Row,1,MATCH(Target_Value,Search_Row,-1)+1) This works perfectly. thumbsup

But, the table has 10 rows, with Names in column A7 to A17 and numbers in the range C7 to AB17.

How can I make the reference Search_Row dynamic, determined by the chosen Name?


Someday I'll know what I'm donig...damn!

Something like the following:


(where Names in your example is range A7:A17)

Hi strongm, I'm sorry I didn't reply sooner, but we were sidetracked to another project and now off for Christmas. I'll try it out during the break and get back to you ASAP OK?
Thanks for helping, and have a merry Christmas and Happy New year 😊
