Lookup two index columns

Formula in B14:

=INDEX(Product, SUMPRODUCT(--(C10=ID_num), --(C11=OrderDate), ROW(Product)-MIN(ROW(Product))+1)) + ENTER

Alternative array formula in B15:

=INDEX(Product, MATCH(C10&"-"&C11, ID_num&"-"&OrderDate, 0)) + CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER

Alternative array formula in B16:

=INDEX(Product, MIN(IF((C10=ID_num)*(C11=OrderDate), ROW(Product)-MIN(ROW(Product))+1))) + CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER

Named ranges
