    Display latest date when specific text occurs

    Hi. I am trying to create a formula that would display the latest date (in column A) when specific text occurs (in column B). I've attached a workbook with the desired solution. Thanks.

    try this ARRAY formula...
    =MAX($A$6:$A$10,IF($B$6:$B$10="*a b*",0))
    ...confirmed by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to activate the array, not just ENTER. You will know the array is active when you see curly braces { } appear around your formula. If you do not CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER you will get an error or a clearly incorrect answer. Press F2 on that cell and try again.
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
