Match info from one column and alter the text to something different in another column


I need to take the info from a column in a sheet called Snow Specific Annual Revenue, and then alter the text slightly so that its easier to sort in order...I have tried many iterations of Match/Index, most recent is:

=INDEX([Snow Specific Annual Revenue]:[Snow Specific Annual Revenue], MATCH([Snow Specific Annual Revenue]@row, {SNOW SPECIFIC REVENUE OPTIONS TO SORT Range 2}, 0))

The range in the secton part is a seperate sheet that has the 'new' values I need, which have A/B/C etc in front of them with a colon to sort them in order...see screen shot attached for the sheet, the column in yellow is where I need to new text to sit after it matches.

Here are the fields I'm trying to convert to more sortable data for charts etc.:

$0-$50,000 to A:$0-$50,000

$51,000 - $100,000 to B:$51,000 - $100,000

$101,000 - $250,000 to C:$101,000 - $250,000

$1 million - $2 million to F:$1 million - $2 million

    Hi @brian25736

    I hope you're well and safe!

    The structure should look something like this.

    =INDEX({ColumnWithTheValueYouWantToShow}, MATCH(CellThatHaveTheValueToMatch@row,{ColumnWithTheValueToMatchAgainsTheCell}, 0))


    Try something like this.

    Example. (replace the last range with the ColumnWithTheValueToMatchAgainsTheCell

    =INDEX({SNOW SPECIFIC REVENUE OPTIONS TO SORT Range 2}, MATCH([Snow Specific Annual Revenue]@row,{ColumnWithTheValueToMatchAgainsTheCell}, 0))

    Make sense?

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
