    V & H LOOKUP

    Thanks for the replies to my last post re: SumIfAnd.

    Just one other issue that has been bugging me for ages . .

    How is it possible to lookup and return a value using reference to a row value AND a column value (in effect VLOOKUP plus HLOOKUP). Would this be possible using a form of array vector??

    Can you give an explaination of what you mean by "a row value AND a column value?" I thought that VLOOKUP already did that. The row value is specified by where the match is found, and the column value is specifically specified in the formula. What are you trying to do?

    As Legare says, please provide more information describing your requirement, but, meantime, have you looked into =index()?

    Or are you thinking of =indirect()?

    You would need to use Match to give you the H index and use that in the vlookup function.

    If this is not clear let me know and I will try to explain it better.

    You can nest HLOOKUPs within VLOOKUPs, and vice versa, to return the row or column that must be specified. Would this be something along the lines of what you're thinking about?
