QUESTION: thank you Tom for the reply
I think you understood my question but the formula you mentioned didnt work with my sheet ,, what i want to do is to make the formula find the "total line for eur" that comes after the headline 50 deposits in a 200 pages general ledger report on excel, so the line or the row that has the "total line for eur" is repeated for each headline and i want the one that comes after 50 deposits specifically also the proplem is the rows go up and down depending on new accounts opened and new rows ...
I hope i made it clear for you and excuse my weak english
try this formula:
=INDEX($C:$C,MATCH("50 deposits",$A:$A,0)+MATCH("total line for eur",OFFSET($A$1,MATCH("50 deposits",$A:$A,0),0,75,1),0),1)
I look up to 75 rows past the "50 deposits" line. If you it could be more than that, change the 75 in the formula to the number of rows to look at.
Tested and worked for me.
