#### Adding third lookup value to index/match

```I understand how Index/Match works with double lookups... But I cant
quite get the third lookup down.

Looking to add a third lookup value and range to this formula (range
z)

=INDEX(table, MATCH(x,range x,0), MATCH(y,range y,1))

Data is laid out like so... (Vertical column range is x)

A  B   C   D   E   F   G   H
1 range yyyyyyyyyyyyyy ->
2 range zzzzzzzzzzzzzz ->
x
x
x
x
x
x

any suggestions...?

```

```Thanx...!

The first range will be x (vertical). (contains 4 letter codes)
The first range will be y (horizontal) (contains dates).
The first range will be z (horizontal) (contains times)

```

```Ok, so you probably want a specific time for a specific date.

What does the setup look like? Can you post a sceencap?

Is there a different date in every cell in range Y? What about the times in
range Z?

How are the times associated with a date?

This should be no problem but I can't suggest something without knowing how
the data is setup.

```This works for me

=INDEX(A1:I20,MATCH("fruit",A1:A20,0),MATCH(1,(A1:I1=TIME(9,0,0))*(A2:I2=DATE(2007,10,4)),0))

change the cell references accordingly to fit your size

It needs to be entered with ctrl + shift & enter

```Thanx.

Since I have cell references for the criteria I am searching for,
could something like this work?

=INDEX(A1:E13,MATCH(K2,A1:A13,0),MATCH(1,(A1:E1=K3)*(B2:E2=K4),1))

```
 0

```Yes if you put those values in K2 - K4 and enter the formula with ctrl +
shift & enter it should work
If it doesn't then there is no match meaning that somehow what you put in K3
and K4 might differ. You can easily check that by direct comparison like
=K3=C1 where K3 holds 9:00 and presumably C1 does too. If it returns FALSE
you will need to find if the values in A1:E1 are text, do the same for
K4 and C2
