In this article we will learn about how we can find the matching values from not adjacent list, we can use a combination of INDEX & MATCH functions to get the output.
INDEX: Returns a value or reference of the cell at the intersection of a particular row and column, in a given range.
MATCH function searches for a specified item in a selected range of cells, and then returns the relative position of that item in the range.
Let us take an example:
Columns A& B contain numbers and matching letters.However, rather than being adjacent, each letter in column B is shifted down one row with respect to its matching number in column A.We need a formula in cell E2 to lookup the value in cell D2 to find the output.
