Hi,

I am having trouble making a spreadsheet to record points and prizes awarded for playing different types of games.

Each game awards a set amount of points for playing, plus a prize depending on the finishing position of the player.
I think I need to use Vlookup but I'm confused as to how to set it up.

I have attached an example spreadsheet to demonstrate.

Any help or Advice greatly appreciated.

vlookup will do the first part and then maybe indexmatch to do the horizontal look up


C6 = =VLOOKUP([GAME CODE],Table16[#All],2,FALSE)
D6 = =VLOOKUP([GAME CODE],Table16[#All],3,FALSE)
F6 = =VLOOKUP([GAME CODE], Table16[#All], MATCH([Finish Position], Table16[#Headers], 0), FALSE)

check it does work correctly
