Problem with hlookup formula
Hi,
how can I get the value of the neighbouring cell of the cell which is found by a hlookup formula returned. E.g: my hlookup formula finds the cell C372 but I want the value of D372

Thats my hlookup formula: =(HLOOKUP(D8,WEEKLY_DATABASE,376,FALSE) it works! but I need the value of the next column and that's what I tried, but doesn't work: =offset(HLOOKUP(D8,WEEKLY_DATABASE,376,FALSE),0,1) error message: There is a problem with this formula. Not trying to type a formula? .......

It brings back N/A I might have to say that my range WEEKLY_DATABASE is on sheet: "weekly" The formula, I need on sheet: "calculations", cell E11 When I trace Precendents of your formula (which I don't understand at all!!!) I get markers on sheet: "calculations" (the entire row 8 is framed by a blue frame and there is an arrow from A8 and D8 to my cell with the formula (E11) and the one for my range: WEEKLY_DATABASE on sheet: "weekly"

Windows10 Office 2016 Sorry Claus, still not working. Error: #N/A The indicator for precedents looks better. Only pointing to the array WEEKLY_DATABASE and D8 If I understand it correctly, Index specifies a cell (by the number for row and column of a certain array) Ok, the column we don't have, therfore we need the "match" function. The row is actually the 371st row of the range, but in the Excel spreadsheet it is row no. 376, therefore I think I have to change both 376 to 371. I tried that, still #N/A I tried to only find the column number by entering: =Match(D8,WEEKLY_DATABASE,0)+1 Result: #N/A The content of D8 is actually a formula which returns a name of a person (text) D8: =VLOOKUP(D7,P8:R59,2,FALSE) The names are listet in array WEEKLY_DATABASE in its first row (row no.6). Any further ideas?

Hi Claus, I managed to change the formula to work in E11 and to give me the correct answer. The formula is this: =INDEX(WEEKLY_DATABASE,MATCH(B11,INDEX(WEEKLY_DATA BASE,,1),0),MATCH($D$8,INDEX(WEEKLY_DATABASE,1,),0 )+1) But it only worked when I enlarged the range for "Weekly_Database" to B6:FA505. But why would I have to do that? I don't understand!

Below is a few major Check List to check why HLOOKUP is not working
1. Not Having Lookup_Value in First Row
2. Counting the Wrong Number of Rows for ‘Row_index_number’ parameter 3. Extra Space or Characters 4. Not Using ‘FALSE’ for Exact Matching [Range_Lookup] 5. A new row has been inserted in the old table where HLOOKUP was working Regards, Jerry
