I am having a problem with what should be a simple solution. In the example below, I am trying to create an Index Match formula to look for one value in a table and pull in the Catalog ID. For example, if I look for PBC-1430, I need 2D4 to populate my cell:
|Catalog ID||Cust A Item #s||Cust B Item #s||Cust C Item #s||Cust D Item #s||Cust E Item #s||Cust F Item #s|
I originally tried using a vlookup, but that didn't work. Any assistant would be much appreciated.

@MeMacz1138 , it depends on what you'd like to do. If multiple criteria, like return value from A if in G we have some1 AND in C some2, etc. - that's one situation. If pull value not from column A but another one that will be third parameter INDEX. Similar to VLOOKUP when you have columns number as parameter.
What is your case exactly? Perhaps just small sample to explain.

@Sergei Baklan I figured an abbreviated spreadsheet would be easiest, which I have attached. I have an inventory workbook that lists out all of the inventory we have on hand for finished products. The inventory includes our own inventory, but also products that have been re-labeled for our customers, but in reality are one of our original catalog id numbers. I basically want to be able to look up the customers item number in an array and then bring back the original catalog id that is associated with that customer's item number. I've attached a shortened version. I have been trying to put in a formula either to the right or left (highlighted in yellow). It seems like it shouldn't be that complicated, but I have yet to figure out what I am doing wrong.

@MeMacz1138 , the formula could be like
=IFERROR( INDEX('Original Catalog & Customers'!$B$6:$B$16,MATCH(1,INDEX( ($B16='Original Catalog & Customers'!$C$6:$C$16)+ ($B16='Original Catalog & Customers'!$D$6:$D$16)+ ($B16='Original Catalog & Customers'!$E$6:$E$16)+ ($B16='Original Catalog & Customers'!$F$6:$F$16)+ ($B16='Original Catalog & Customers'!$G$6:$G$16)+ ($B16='Original Catalog & Customers'!$H$6:$H$16)+ ($B16='Original Catalog & Customers'!$I$6:$I$16), 0),0)), "no such")
It is assumed the ID is not repeated in Custom Item columns, each ID could be only in one of columns. Formula is in the left column of the Inventory. You need adjust the range to real ones, but it'll be better to transform Customer Items into the Excel Table or use dynamic named ranges, but that's cosmetic.
