    INDEX & SUMPRODUCT formula

    In the following table


    i have the following formula ( Highlighted )


    $L20 is the value in column 4

    This is to extract the relevant row title from a pivot table based on the value in column 4 ( which searches the pivot table for the X ranked value , in this case the 4th )

    From the image you can see that in column 4 i have two equal values and the row return in column 3 is #REF

    what do i need to add to the above formula so it will pick up the correct row return? or do i need a different formula vlookup maybe?

    Many thanks

    Re: INDEX & SUMPRODUCT formula

    Your SUMPRODUCT will return an array of values in a 16 x 5 matrix ... which your trying to leverage with a 16 x 1 range (c/o INDEX) - hence #REF!

    Given the requirement, and your version, I would probably go with:
