I have a workbook with items listed in column a and 12 months referenced inrow 1 starting in column b. The table contains monthly data for each item.. I need help creating a reference formula that will match the item as wellas the month. For example, find the data in the cell where the month of "3/1/15" and the item "forks" intercept. Thank you in advance for the help.

try:
=INDEX(A1:N200,MATCH("forks",A1:A200,0),MATCH(DATEVALUE("03/01/2015"),A1:N1,0))
or
=INDEX(A1:N200,MATCH("forks",A1:A200,0),MATCH(3,MONTH(A1:N1),0))
The last formula is an array formula to insert with CTRL+Shift+Enter
