Why is INDEX/MATCH formula returning incorrect values and correct values in a sequence?

Options

First snip is of formula and second is of source data (different sheets). Notice 11228 & 11229 are returning values of 11224 and I cannot figure out why. Am only new and probably an easy answer. Appreciate any advice/help.

    Hi @Andy F

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    =
    INDEX({MGPR Status & Invoice Forecasting Range 2}, MATCH([Job Number]@row, 
    {MGPR Status & Invoice Forecasting Range 1},0))
    

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
