    Re: Lookup next lowest number and return corresponding cell

    Sorry, that wasn't clear. I have three rows of data. I would like to look up column A and find the next lowest value in column B. I want to return the value in column C that corresponds to the value in column B. For example, I want to lookup 4.91 in column A, find the next lowest number in B, which is 3.2 and return 0.02785...

    See the attached file (see the green cells).

    I added helpcolumn while your data in column B is not sorted a- or decending.
