    Unhappy Displaying cell with latest date which contains specific text from a list of raw data

    Displaying cell with latest date which contains specific text from a list of raw data

    Please help!

    In my excel sheet, i wanted to display in "$E$2" the latest result from a list of results in column A containing a specific number "5445". I tried to use the below formula to display the date of the latest result but its not working out as I got a "0" in the cell. Am I doing this wrong?

    =MAX(IF(A2:A9=ISNUMBER(SEARCH("5445",A2:A9)),B2:B9))

    Attach a sample workbook (not a picture or pasted copy). Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and then scroll down to Manage Attachments to open the upload window.
