Excel Dynamic Formulas

Rather than bog you Spreadsheet down with hundreds, if not thousands of formulas, use a single formula with flexible and changeable Arguments. In this example I will use the INDEX/MATCH functions nested together. You can also instruct the end formula to return the corresponding cell, to the match, on the left or right.  However, the the same principles can apply to most Excel formulas.

In this example I have used the range A2:D14 as my table range. I have also made good use of Named Ranges and Data Validation. The single formula, in this case, ends being;

=IF(ISERROR(INDEX(DataTable,MATCH(Look_For,INDIRECT(Column_To_Look),0)+1,IF(Look_Left_Right="Right",MATCH(Column_To_Look,Heads,0)+Offset_To_Column,MATCH(Column_To_Look,Heads,0)-Offset_To_Column))),"Invalid Criteria",INDEX(DataTable,MATCH(Look_For,INDIRECT(Column_To_Look),0)+1,IF(Look_Left_Right="Right",MATCH(Column_To_Look,Heads,0)+Offset_To_Column,MATCH(Column_To_Look,Heads,0)-Offset_To_Column)))

Or, if don't mind see formula errors IF invalid argument criteria is used, it is simply;

=INDEX(DataTable,MATCH(Look_For,INDIRECT(Column_To_Look),0)+1,IF(Look_Left_Right="Right",MATCH(Column_To_Look,Heads,0)+Offset_To_Column,MATCH(Column_To_Look,Heads,0)-Offset_To_Column))
