## Summary

To lookup two different rates for the same client, and calculate a final charge, you can use a formula based on two VLOOKUP functions.

In the example shown, the formula in E5 is:

``````=VLOOKUP(B5,rates,2,0)*C5+VLOOKUP(B5,rates,3,0)*D5
``````

where "rates" is the named range G5:I8.

## Generic formula

``=VLOOKUP(client,rates,col,0)*hrs+VLOOKUP(client,rates,col,0)*hrs``

## Explanation

This formula is composed of two lookups for the same client. The first lookup finds the onsite rate for the client in column B and multiplies the result by the number of hours in column C:

``````=VLOOKUP(B5,rates,2,0)*C5
``````

The second lookup finds the offsite rate for same client and multiplies the result by the number of hours in column D:

``````VLOOKUP(B5,rates,3,0)*D5
``````

In the final step the two results are added together:

``````=(50*0)+(60*16)
=960
``````
