I am quite good at excel for no training, however, have found myself to hit a wall. I have a 2 way table. Essentially what I am attempting to do is a Index/Match function but in reverse. Where as the Index/match function will look up in two differing directions of arrays and spit out the value of the intersecting point I want to do this in reverse. Example
I have a table where I will search for the maximum values utilizing the =Match(array) function.
Based on the number it finds within the chart/array, i need to find the corresponding row and column identifiers.
For you visual people:
......A.. B. C.. D.. E
......a.. b.. c.. d.. e
A a 10 14 34 42 30
B b 22 31 52 58 10
C c 11 15 13 14 15
D d 16 45 18 19 20
E e 21 22 23 24 25
So in the above example i would use MAX function to return the value of '52'. I then need some way to spit out and identify '52' would be found in row 'C', and 'c' and column 'B' and 'b'. Please note the '.'s are just for spacing purposes. Yes there are two identifying columns/rows for the data set.
I have attempted utilizing Match/Max function to at least identify 2 of the columns and it returns an #N/A no matter what i seem to adjust, =MATCH(MAX(C3:G7),A3:A8&B3:B8,0) where this would identify the first two column numbers in which the max value of 52 is found, but it simply will not work. Under formula evaluation it simply returns a #N/A. All values in the data table are formatted as a number with '0' decimal places. I have attempted this as well, still #N/A, =MATCH(ROUND(MAX(C3:G7),0),A3:A8&B3:B8,0)
If I need to clarify anything further, please let me know.
