I need an Excel 2010 array formula that will take 2 given data points, say a "Name" (row) and "Month" (column), and return the sum of a row based upon the intersection of these two points within a data table. (I apologize, but I'm not able to insert a JPG.) For example, my table's "Name" reference range is A2:A15, and the corresponding "Month" range is B1:M1. The data contained in the table itself would be monthly sales by name.
The required formula would return the "YTD" sum of all values (monthly sales) contained in a row between the intersection of a specified "Name" & "Month," effectively returning the YTD value for a given "Name" based on a specified "Month."
For my formula (located outside of the table), my "Name" data point reference is cell "B20" and my "Month" data point reference is cell "C20." (I hope this makes sense!!)
I have experimented with MANY variations of SUM(INDEX(MATCH and SUM(OFFSET(MATCH formulas, but to no avail. The difficulty is having to solve for two data point references. :(
