How to return value from matrix in mathcad 15

How to return value from matrix in mathcad 15

How to return value from matrix in mathcad 15

(OP)
This should be crazy easy but for some reason I can't figure it out... I want to set a variable equal to a value from a matrix by calling out the column and row, x=y(i,j), where i and j are column and row values. This seems like it should be crazy easy but I can't even find the row operator

I can't even find the square brackets, and the round brackets make it assume it's a function. Is that in mcad 15 or prime?

Turns out vlookup was what I wanted

(OP)
Nevermind, I see I'm not trying to put the square bracket in mathcad, this works.

RE: How to return value from matrix in mathcad 15

vlookup is for looking for specific values within a matrix, so unless your indices are actually in the matrix itself, I don't see that it does what you originally stated.

Quote (vlookup(z, A, c))

Looks in the first column of a matrix, A, for a given value, z, and returns the value(s) in the same row(s) in the column specified, c. When multiple values are returned, they appear in a vector.
