Index or Vlookup or What?

Hey All!

I have a question for the community that i'm having trouble figuring out to return a certain value to another sheet based on criteria. The pic I attached shows a project budget setup and I am wanting to pull data from the Budget cell based on the Job ID and the Cost Category. I'm not sure if it is a Index - Match function or a combination of Vlookup / Hlookup but any help is greatly appreciated!

    Hi Ryan,

    I'd recommend using a VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH combination.

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s), copies of the sheet(s)? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected]ne.se)

    Hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic day!

  • Andree,

    I have a another sheet that needs to pull the cell value for Materials in the Budget column but based on the Job ID because there will be about 30 different project budgets all in the same sheet. Does that help? I'm going to make a copy of the sheet and share it with you.
