# Lookup 2 possible values within INDEX/MATCH function.

## Lookup 2 possible values within INDEX/MATCH function.

Price: FREE

Have a formula that works fine.
Problem has arisen that calls for looking for 2 possible values in the range. The formula is posted below:
Composite \$C\$3:\$C\$534 (at the end of the formula)
If I could modify that range to include both "Red", or "Blue" in that column it would work. .
OR,
modify the cell to be looked up (\$Q3) to include "Red" or "Blue".
TIA for any ideas on this.

### Which is better? LOOKUP or INDEX?

Free: Yes
Tags: Excel ›

I have data that's 50 some odd columns wide and about 500 rows deep. Is there a more efficient method of looking up values using either a LOOKUP function or an INDEX function? I'm asking because I notice Excel starts to lag when I use VLOOKUP with such a large amount of data and I want to know if it would be worth my time changing it to a INDEX/MATCH function. Does one or the other work quicker?

I am using LOOKUP functions to retrieve info from a list. Some of the lookup values have more than one match in the list. Is there a function that allows me to retrieve multiple elements for one lookup value, or at least a function that tells me there are duplicate matches?

I want to lookup values where duplicates exist but do not want the same lookup result.
e.g.
How can I use Match, Index to return 1 when looking up 12, then 3 when looking up 12, what happens now is I lookup 12 and get 1 every time. I've used pivot tables and that works but its not ideal.
