In this tutorial, you will find a number of Excel INDEX formula examples that demonstrate the most efficient uses of INDEX in Excel.

  • Get nth item from the list.
  • Get all values in a row or column.
  • INDEX with other Excel functions.
  • Excel INDEX formula for dynamic range.
  • VLOOKUP with INDEX / MATCH.
  • Get one range from the list of ranges.
