# Can you combine VLOOKUP with a nest HLOOKUP?

#### Guest

I'm trying to match my selection from a dropdown list to a row, and then my
selection from a different drop down list to the column that matches it, so I
can retrieve the cell that both the column and row match up to... Similiar to
a times table.

My best shot is:

=IF(B4=0,"
",VLOOKUP(B4,FixType!\$A\$1:\$V\$58,(HLOOKUP(C4,FixType!\$A\$1:\$V\$58,1,FALSE))))

But it only *sometimes* returns a number from the FixType worksheet, and
it's either wrong or #VALUE.

Thanks,
PC

Look at INDEX function which uses the intersection of row & column to
retrieve data.

God bless you Toppers!

=INDEX(FixType!\$A\$1:\$V\$58,MATCH(A4,FixType!\$A\$1:\$A\$58,1),MATCH(B4,FixType!\$A\$1:\$V\$1,1))

Works!!! I've been on this for two straight days. I'm so happy!
