Alright, I've got it for you. The formula is based on the "Job Title" so the "Job Title" has to match on the "Matrix Data" sheet and the "Result" sheet. If it does not it will display an error like this "#N/A". I shortened the results to "NDN", "DN", and "NA" so they could fit in the given cell. This can easily be changed in the formula. If you need help or further explanation let me know. Here is the formula and I've linked the sheet you gave me here.


=IF(AND((VLOOKUP(B3,'Matrix Data'!$A$2:$S$12,2,FALSE))="X",'Collected Data'!C3="no"),"DN",IF(AND((VLOOKUP(B3,'Matrix Data'!$A$2:$S$12,2,FALSE))="X",'Collected Data'!C3="yes"),"NDN","NA"))
