Index Worksheet Function
by Linda Quinn
=Index( Range, Row_num, [Column_num])
INDEX returns a cell value at a specific row and column .
A function such as MATCH can be used to find the row or column number.
|| Range of cells in which the row number and column number can be found.
||The row number is relative to the range .
For example, if the range is B5:B10 then row_num 3 would be row 7
||If the Range is wider than a single column,
the column number finds the correct column for the given row.
In the above example, the first INDEX
formula references the range A2:A7
It has a row number of 4
The fourth row in the range A2:A7
is row 5
of the Excel sheet, which contains the value 530
The second INDEX
example references the range A2:D7
Since this range has 2
dimensions, we need to provide a column number in addition to a row number.
In this example the row is 5
and the column is 4
. This is the location D6
in the range, which is the value 29,500
