As I look at the above examples in vlookup of two google sheets, I haven't seen the same as what I want my google sheet to be happen.

I have a "Form Responses", the most important for this sheet is the Mem_ID, Month and Amount.

In my other sheet "Sinking Fund 2023", in Members Contribution, I am creating the formula under "Jan1st, Jan2nd, etc." and to be looked up from Form Responses.

If MemID_2022-0001 has a response for Jan1st, the amount should be added in Jan1st column and if it is Jan2nd this should be automatic added in Sinking Fund 2023 google sheet.

Any one knows how to do the formula. This also needs the importrange function since we are using 2 google sheets.

Below are the links of my google sheet.

Sinking Fund 2023

Hi, I tried using the formulae, but my values are returned blank. I do have access to the files as I created two mock sheets to test my formulae.
