Base is the column or array used for identification
Compare two columns and find # matching Source in a different row
=MATCH(Source, Base, 0)
=MATCH(A2,B:B,0)
Compare two columns and copy value matching against Source in a different row
=INDEX(Base,MATCH(Source,Base,0),1)
=INDEX(B:B,MATCH(A2,B:B,0),1)
Alternatively using VLOOKUP
=VLOOKUP(A2,B:B,1,TRUE)
Compare Source in column and copy different cell value when value matches against Source
=INDEX(Table,MATCH(Source,Base,0),1)
=INDEX($B$2:$E$8,MATCH(A2,$B$2:$B$8,0),3)
Alternatively using VLOOKUP
=VLOOKUP(A2,$B$2:$I$8,3,FALSE)
Compare two Sources in two different column and copy cell value when value matches with matching Source values*
=INDEX(Table,MATCH(1,(Base=Source1)*(Base=Source2),0),5)
=INDEX($A$2:$E$8,MATCH(1,($B$2:$B$8=A5)*($D$2:$D$8=C5),0),5)
