In a worksheet called "SPtemplate, I have written the following formula: =IFERROR(INDEX(DataSheet!$E$15:$J$1501,MATCH(I2,DataSheet!$C$15:$C$1501,0),MATCH($A$1,DataSheet!$E$14:$J$14,0)),"")
It works. However there is a slight complication in the cell "i2" is the name of a student. The formula looks in the index (DataSheet!$E$15:$J$1501) and matchs the name of the students with a column heading ($A$1).
The problem is that the student's name appears twice because she is in two different classes. The classes are listed in column "D" of the index.
There is a separate reference to the student's class in the worksheet "SPtemplate" in cell "X4"
Is there a way of writing a formula that distinguishes between the two different classes and returns the correct result?
Thanks in advance
You would need to enter the formula as an array formula
