Description: INDEX and MATCH is the most popular tool in Excel for performing more advanced lookups. This is because INDEX and MATCH is incredibly flexible – you can do horizontal and vertical lookups, 2-way lookups, left lookups, case-sensitive lookups, and even lookups based on multiple criteria.
Description: The INDEX function can also return a specific value in a two-dimensional range. For example, use INDEX and MATCH in Excel to perform a two-way-lookup. Case-sensitive Lookup. By default, the VLOOKUP function performs a case-insensitive lookup. However, you can use INDEX, MATCH and EXACT in Excel to perform a case-sensitive lookup.
Description: INDEX and MATCH are Excel lookup functions. While they are two entirely separate functions that can be used on their own, they can also be combined to create advanced formulas. The INDEX function returns a value or the reference to a value from within a particular selection.
Description: The INDEX MATCH formula is the combination of two functions in Excel : INDEX and MATCH. =INDEX () returns the value of a cell in a table based on the column and row number. =MATCH () returns the position of a cell in a row or column.
Description: To create INDEX MATCH formula we need to replace MATCH with row_argument of INDEX. When we use MATCH, it looks up for the value from the lookup column and return the cell number of that value. And then, INDEX use that number to figure out the position of the cell from the value column.
Description: The most popular way to do a two-way lookup in Excel is by using INDEX MATCH MATCH. This is a variation of the classic INDEX MATCH formula to which you add one more MATCH function in order to get both the row and column numbers: INDEX (data_array, MATCH (vlookup_value, lookup_column_range, 0), MATCH (hlookup value, lookup_row_range, 0))
Description: “At its worst, the INDEX-MATCH method is about as fast as VLOOKUP; at its best, it’s much faster.” INDEX/MATCH is Independent of the Actual Column Position. If you have a dataset as shown below as you’re fetching the score of Jim in Physics, you can do that using VLOOKUP. And to do that, you can specify the column number as 3 in VLOOKUP.
Description: The INDEX MATCH function is one of Excel's most powerful features. The older brother of the much-used VLOOKUP, INDEX MATCH allows you to look up values in a table based off of other rows and columns. And, unlike VLOOKUP, it can be used on rows, columns, or both at the same time.
Description: Use the combination of INDEX and MATCH functions instead. This example shows a small list where the value we want to search on, Chicago, isn't in the leftmost column. So, we can't use VLOOKUP. Instead, we'll use the MATCH function to find Chicago in the range B1:B11.
