Index, Match with Find and Left function


I am trying to get a formula to look up a value with the INDEX / MATCH function and the Search_Value being the numbers up to a "-" dash from the "Type For List" column.

The index/match does not seem to like the LEFT or FIND functions

Has anyone come across this or has a work around?


=INDEX({O_Type}, MATCH((LEFT([Type For List]@row, 2)), {O_Type_ID}, 0))
