1. List the column and row headers you want to look up at, see screenshot:
2. In the cell you want to place the lookup value, select one formula from below:
(1) A1:A8 is the column range, L1 is the row header you want to look up in the column range, A1:I1 is the row range, L2 is the column header you want to find in the row range, A1:I8 is the whole range of the data, you can change as you need)
(2) The formula =SUMPRODUCT((A1:A8=L1)*(A1:I1=L2),A1:I8) will return 0 if the lookup value is text.
