INDEX MATCH MATCH with Contacts List



I'm trying to use index match match to pull contacts based on 2 different columns. Many of the contacts pull up but there a few that show #INVALID VALUE. I checked to make sure the data was filled properly and everything looks good. Anything I can do to fix this?

When it should be pulling:

    First, when it comes to matching multiple criteria, I personally find using MATCH MATCH gets messy, so I usually use INDEX(COLLECT() formula.

    =INDEX(COLLECT({Meh Range 1}, {Meh Range 2}, Discipline@row, {Meh Range 3}, Market@row), 1)
