I have cell A1, and then below 4 columns. Cell A1 right now contains number 2.
2 | A | B | C | SELECTED | | 12 | 44 | 88 | 44 | | 43 | 55 | 99 | 55 | | 54 | 66 | 11 | 66 |
Which formula should I put into ‘Selected’ column to display there values of the second column? I would like the A1 cell to control which values are displayed there. Basically, I’m looking for a similar functionality to a VLOOKUP, except there is no lookup and it just takes range a4:c4 and selectes column number A1.
You can use
INDEX() for that. Let’s say that
88 are in columns A, B and C respectively, and on row 4.
In the first cell under
SELECTED, you can put this:
=INDEX(A4:C4, 0, A$1)
And then you can drag this down to get the remaining rows.
INDEX takes the whole row (hence the
0) and the column from the value in
A$1 from the range
In D2 enter:
and copy down
