    Index/Match Formula Help

    Trisha Cornwell

      WI have a data set sample below that I need to pull the name associated with WBS1. My data structure is GL Detail (which includes WBS1/2/3) and is linked to the PR Table which has the name structure below for WBS1/2/3. When I drop the "Name" to my tableau report, it is returning the name associated with the lowest WBS in the file. I'd like to create a formula that will pull the name associated with WBS1.


      I feel like I need to add a second connection but if I only link it up on WBS1, the report will return every combination under the WBS1. Any help is appreciated. I don't have a slimmed down workbook but I could create one if that is needed.
