    Try an INDEX/MATCH there. I like INDEX/MATCH over VLOOKUP because it will still work even if columns get moved around in the sheet.

    =INDEX([Total Completed C-Boxes]:[Total Completed C-Boxes], MATCH(TODAY(), Date:Date, 0))

    In English - find the value in the [Total Completed C-Boxes] column on the row where the Date value equals today.
