I am trying to use Index and Match to return the first date something was billed. Conversely, eventually I need to find the same for the last date. Right now, I am using a simple index match based on the row number, but if the activity changes, I need to validate the activity on Sheet 1 with the description on Sheet 2. There needs to be some logic in the formula to match the description to ensure it is looking up the correct row. Thus the logic would be, lookup/match the description in column A, then lookup and return the corresponding date for the first column within the corresponding row with a dollar value in it.

Currently using an excel spread sheet to create a database of parts and their parts numbers, as well as the contact information of who to contact to order the part. I have a pivet table set up and in column A i have all the parts going down, and then the plus/minus buttons are clicked to reveal the contacts/phone/email to get ahold of it, again this is all in column A via the compact form report layout. Next i am trying to find a way to insert addition information such as order frequency etc, in column BCDEF. I want them to be attached to the pivot table so that i can easily update and insert information. If i were to insert the frequencies next to the table but not in it, when opening the plus/minus' in column A this then throws the rest of the document out of wack and isnt aligned correctly. How would i go about inserting this information in a column connected to the pivot table and its corresponding parts without changing out of the compact view because of printing aspects and clarity.
