    Dear Experts,

    I tried auto populating the data from the source sheet. I tried with Index and Match Function, but I'm getting an error. Could you please advise why the error occurs and what would be the correct formula.

    If you look at column C you are asking to index 1,2. I.e. row 1 and column 2. The range you are indexing on is only one column wide.

    try this {=INDEX(Master!$C$2:$C$5731,MATCH(1,($A2=Master!$A$2:$A$5731)*(Answer!B$1=Master!$B$2:$B$5731),0))}

    Instead of just using the enter key, you must use Ctl + Shift +Enter

    This is an array formula

    Array Formula
    ...confirmed by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to activate the array, not just ENTER. You will know the array is active when you see curly braces { } appear around your formula. If you do not CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER you will get an error or a clearly incorrect answer.
