Hello, I have hard time to solve this: I have problem like this:

1st worksheet I have a table similar than this:
A B C D
1 DOG 1 WHITE
2 BROWN
2 CAT 1 SMALL
2 MEDIUM
3 BIG

2ND WORSHEET WANT SOMETHING LIKE THIS
animal type subdivision specific
(enter #) (Formula 1) (enter #) (Formula 2)

Example of what I want:
1 dog 2 brown

For the formula 1 I solve it with the VLOOK not problem my column Type(formula 1) return the type of animal.

But for the second formula I need to check both numbers that I enter on the 2nd worksheet (animal & subdivision) and match it in the 1st worksheet, in order to get the right specific.

I apreciate your help

most easy way would be use of custom formula

other option could be
instead of this
1 DOG 1 WHITE
      2 BROWN
2 CAT 1 SMALL
      2 MEDIUM
      3 BIG

have
1	DOG	1	WHITE
1	DOG	2	BROWN
2	CAT	1	SMALL
2	CAT	2	MEDIUM
2	CAT	3	BIG

then u can use https://www.mrexcel.com/board/threads/vlookup-with-multiple-columns-formula-needed.610062/
