QUESTION: Attached you will find am image of my spreadsheet. Here is the issue. A the top of the screen you will see my named tables. This issue is specific with the "Gauge". In the lower left you will see to the left of the "#REF" is a pull-down menu to select my gauge. The formula works fine from 28 Gauge - 20 Gauge, However on 18 Gauge - 10 Gauge it returns this #REF. I am using Excel 2010. Below is the formula;
=INDEX(($P$15:$T$21,$P$25:$T$31,$P$35:$T$41,$P$45:$T$51,$P$55:$T$61,$P$65:$T$71,$P$75:$T$81,$P$85:$T$91,$P$95:$T$101,$P$105:$T$111),MATCH(B38,Material,0),MATCH(B40,Gauge,0),MATCH(B42,Size,0))

If you do not see anything obvious I could email the spreadsheet to you. Thank you for your time and efforts.
