Hello there. I have a column on two separate sheets called Dept Link. If the content of these cells match, I want it to report out the contents of a different cell called Highlights. How would I do that?

    It would look something like this...

    =INDEX({Other Sheet Highlights Column}, MATCH([Dept Link]@row, {Other Sheet Dept Link Column}, 0))

    Thank you! I actually wrote this formula before posting but left off the 0. It was not giving me the right text.

    Happy to help. 👍️


    The zero indicates that the MATCH function will search for an exact match. If you are ever having a problem with INDEX/MATCH, that's usually the first thing to check is if that zero is there.
