Pull a rating from a matrix (INDEX / MATCH? INDEX / COLLECT)
I have this data in a spread sheet, with the combination of two variables resulting in a Risk Rating... But I don't know how to write the formula to address these nine combinations.
Thanks in advance for the help...

Hi @Berto D
You're right, I would use an INDEX(COLLECT for this!
For example:
=INDEX(COLLECT({Risk Rating Column}, {Probability Column}, Probability@row, {Impact Column}, Impact@row), 1)
This will check the sheet that has your three columns listed to find the row that has the same matching combination of Probability and Impact as your current row and then return the matching Risk Rating.
Let me know if this works for you or if I can explain the formula further.
Cheers,
Genevieve
