I have a 180 row spreadsheet that goes out to column AN.  I want to combine a VLookup with HLookup that matches the column heading in row 2 with the column heading in column A.

possibly http://www.aidanheritage.byethost3.com/excel/UseOfMatchAndOffset.xls may give you what you want - it's certainly not the only way, but I think would probably be the most efficient - hopefully this is clear, but let me know if you need further help - if useful, my direct email is support@flameenterprises.co.uk

I have provided first hand support since `95 for Microsoft Office majoring in Word and Excel - support for all versions from 2 onwards. I'm based in the UK, so please allow for time differences when asking me questions from other parts of the world!


My background is in the insurance industry and call centre areas, but have been called upon to provide many varied solutions.

I'm educated to UK A level standard, but as I left school some 30 years ago that is rather irrelevent - university of life has provided more of a background!
