Can you Index-Match referencing multiple sheets?

Hi! I am a newbie to Smartsheet and jumping in head first.

I am trying to use Index-Match to bring in information to a master sheet, but I need the function to look at multiple reference sheets.

Master Sheet

Highlighted in pink are the columns I am referring to. I would like the User to manually input a number into the 'ASN' column and the 'Network Name' auto-populates

Reference Sheet

I created three reference sheets named by region (AMER, APAC, EMEA) with two columns. The reference sheets have to be separate due to number of rows.

**I tried a simple Index-Match on one reference sheet, and it didn't work. And combining what doesn't work into an IF statement, well seems a bit mad. Below you will find my function statement. I feel like its not total circle, like I am missing the piece that brings the information back to the Master.

=INDEX({AMER ASN Filtered range 3}, MATCH([ASN \[MANUAL INPUT\]]@row,}, {AMER ASN Filtered Range 1}), 1))

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey @Reagan

    The formula below has the correct syntax for an INDEX/MATCH.

    =INDEX({AMER ASN Filtered range 3}, MATCH([ASN \[MANUAL INPUT\]]@row, {AMER ASN Filtered Range 1}, 0))

    The zero within the MATCH function indicates the data is unsorted. You need this in the function.

    Does this work for you?
