    index return nth large value

    Hello, I got a very confusing problem. Attached please find the sample sheet.

    what I want to get is the 2nd large value from column E to Y based on discount amount in column A.

    However, the first function in cell B2 works, but the second one in B4 does NOT. #NUM error. Why?

    My excel is 2010 and 2013, both did not work.

    Re: index return nth large value

    Your formula gives the wrong answer if the values are all negative. I'm not sure why it fails in the second case, but then again I don't see why it works at all.

    This formula works for all cases. It is also an array formula:

    Re: index return nth large value

    Hello, I have further question, if I want to get the valid value at most right position in the array,

    say, I want B2 returns Y2 value (98%), B4 returns W4 value (498%), how can I write the formula?

    Thanks again.
