We have already seen a table lookup example using the OFFSET function.

Here, we perform a similar operation using INDEX and MATCH

The example below show how well INDEX and MATCH can work together.

MATCH will return the position of a particular value in an array, while INDEX returns the value of a particular position within an array. We see multiple examples of these functions in operation below.

PriceMatrix is C4:E6 Material is C3:E3 Item is B4:B6
Using these names in the formulas below makes for easier readability nad maintenance. For this reason, it is always good practice to take advantage of the ability to name arrays that will be used within formulas.
