Index Match Formula Using Multiple Sheets


I'm trying to write an index match formula for a downstream transaction sheet in which if payment date is not found on sheet 1 it would be pulled from sheet 2. I tried the below IF INDEX MATCH formula but got an #INVALID REF error.

=IF(INDEX({Payment Date}, MATCH(Invoice Number, {Invoice Number }, 0)) = 1, INDEX({Payment Date}, MATCH(Invoice Number Final, {Invoice Number Final}, 0)))

Any thoughts?

    Hi @Alexandra Prescott

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    IF(INDEX({Payment Date}, MATCH([Invoice Number]@row, {Invoice Number}, 0)) = 1, 
    INDEX({Payment Date}, MATCH([Invoice Number Final]@row, {Invoice Number Final}, 0)

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
