I’m stuck on an Excel problem and am hoping someone can assist. I read through 10-15 topics that are similar, but I wasn’t able to get anything to work. Here is where I’m at…

I have a large data set containing columns for `Year`

, `Name`

, `Total 1`

, `Total 2`

(and 20+ other columns). The same names appear in multiple rows based on the yearly totals. On a separate sheet, I have another data set containing Name and would like to pull the data from sheet one into columns as shown below.

I have done this in the past using only one year as the initial data set with the following formula:

```
=INDEX(DATARANGE,MATCH([@Name],DATARANGE[Name],0),MATCH("Total 1",DATARANGE[#Headers],0))
```

The problem I am having is the result of adding multiple years of data to my 1st data set. Is there a way to match the row based on `name`

and `year`

and then return the results of the appropriate column?

Change the first MATCH function to something like this:

`=MATCH(1,INDEX(([@Name]=DATARANGE[Name])*([@Year]=DATARANGE[Year]),0),0)`

so as part of your whole formula that would be this

`=INDEX(DATARANGE,MATCH(1,INDEX(([@Name]=DATARANGE[Name])*([@Year]=DATARANGE[Year]),0),0)`

,MATCH("Total 1",DATARANGE[#Headers],0))

Another way you can use for returning numbers only (as here) is like this: (with cell refs for simplicity).

`=SUMPRODUCT((A2:A9=2013)*(B2:B9="name x")*(C1:D1="Total 1"),C2:D9)`

### Answer：

```
=SUM(($A$2:$A$9=B$16)*($B$2:$B$9=$A17)*($C$2:$C$9))
```

Enter above in cell B14 as an array formula or below as standard

```
=SUMPRODUCT(($A$2:$A$9=B$16)*($B$2:$B$9=$A17)*($C$2:$C$9))
```

You can do the same for total 2 just replace Cs with Ds

And then drag right and down.

### Answer：

If the presented data to be indexed is a table then

This

```
=MATCH(1,INDEX(([@Name]=DATARANGE[Name])*([@Year]=DATARANGE[Year]),0),0)
```

should be corrected to a proper structured reference of

```
@[Name]
```

Also since this is an array formula it may not work with structured references at all. You’d be better served with regular cell references. Also if it is not a table only cell references will work.
