Index Match Match Failure

Options

Hi, I am having trouble with an INDEX, MATCH, MATCH formula.

Basically what I want to do is say.

If the PROCUREMENT COUNTRY and the DIV @ROW match then return the PROCUREMENT MANAGER from the DIVISION ASSIGNMENT BREAKDOWN sheet.

=INDEX({DIVISION ASSIGNMENT BREAKDOWN Range 2}, MATCH([PROCUREMENT COUNTRY]@row, {DIVISION ASSIGNMENT BREAKDOWN Range 1}, 0), MATCH(DIV@row, {DIVISION ASSIGNMENT BREAKDOWN Range 3}, 0))

It works up until I add the second match then it returns an #INVALID VALUE

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Ooops. I see what I did. Try JOIN instead. If there's only 1 match in the range it should work for you:

    =JOIN(COLLECT({DIVISION ASSIGNMENT BREAKDOWN Range 2}, {DIVISION ASSIGNMENT BREAKDOWN Range 1},@cell=[PROCUREMENT COUNTRY]@row, {DIVISION ASSIGNMENT BREAKDOWN Range 3}, @cell=DIV@row)

    Any luck this time?

    Hi Geoff,

    Try INDEX(COLLECT instead.

    =INDEX(COLLECT({DIVISION ASSIGNMENT BREAKDOWN Range 2}, {DIVISION ASSIGNMENT BREAKDOWN Range 1},[PROCUREMENT COUNTRY]@row, {DIVISION ASSIGNMENT BREAKDOWN Range 3}, DIV@row)

    Work for you?

    @Mark Cronk - looks like you were able to provide some excellent help here. I have a similar situation I am hoping you can help me with?

    I am trying to do a cross-sheet formula to look at two columns 1) ProductType and 2) Productsub-group. If the details match in one, I want to populate details from a 3rd column 'Min.Enrollment'.

    I've tried IF, VLOOKUP, and INDEX/MATCH and can't get them to work. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Hi @Alex Knisely

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, andree@workbold.com)

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

    Best,
