For any cells where column D contains a number, it means that the entry was

INDEX is another function that does not immediately seem to have many great
uses. In its basic form, INDEX returns the value from a particular row and
column of a rectangular range. It returns a value from a particular posi-
tion of a vertical or horizontal vector.
Typically, you specify a rectangular range and then indicate the row number
and column number of the value that you want to return. In Figure 12.28 , the
formula in C3 returns the third row and second column of B5:D9. Certainly,
this is a needlessly complicated way to point to cell C7.
