Primer on Index

Versatile, Robust, Fast, Simple, Elegant .. oh all that is ME 😆 and The INDEX function too. Since you already know me so let me introduce you to the INDEX function


 Ladies & Gentlemen here is INDEX

If you have been using VLOOKUP for a while, it is time now to graduate baby! Let’s start simple with the Syntax =INDEX(array, row_num, col_num)

  1. Array is your lookup range. Just like your vlookup range!
  2. Row_num is the row number that you want in your array
  3. Col_num (optional) is the column number that you want in your array
  4. Assuming all the values fed in correctly the INDEX returns the intersection of row and column number in the array. Trust me it is that simple 😎
