Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Two-way lookup using the MATCH and INDEX functions, part of Excel Tips Weekly.
- In this worksheet, a variety of Excel features…are being pulled together to give a somewhat vivid display…of finding information based on a list in Column C…perhaps this is inventory, it could be much larger…or smaller, and also some states across the top,…not all of them are listed, it could grow,…could include others.…Of course it could be used for different examples too,…cross monthly data, and what's also set up here…are some Pick Lists, so that in for example, A6,…we can click a drop arrow and see our list of inventory.…
We don't have to do any typing here, we'll scroll…up and down and pick an item, and as soon as we do…watch the yellow row to the right move downward.…We can also vary this by state.…This is also a Pick List, these are easy to set up…and we'll show you how.…And when we make changes to either one of these,…we also see a total up top, this change.…This is using an index function.…So also involved in the mix of features here…is an index function, two uses of the Match function,…we've already mentioned the Pick List idea.…
