I'm trying to figure out how to do the above, and attached an Excel example. I'm trying to write a formula (likely 2 formulas) that will return the right data in cells D13, E13, D14, E14, etc. (currently hard-coded in red and highlighted in yellow in the attachment). I thought it could be some sort of INDEX/MATCH combo, or possibly OFFSET/MATCH, but can't seem to figure it out.

Basically, I have a range -- call it A1:G9. I have category titles in Row 1 and Column A. Lots of random numbers in the data range (B2:G9), all between -1 and 1 (e.g. 0.0657). I'm trying to find the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, (etc.) largest numbers in the range -- easy, with the LARGE function.

So, let's say the 1st largest number is 0.473195 (located in F9), and the 2nd largest number is 0.450069 (located in E5). How do I write a formula to tell me what's the category titles are for each of these results. For example, for the 1st largest number (happens to be in F9), I'd want a formula to return F1 ("FF") and another formula to return A9 ("99"). And for the 2nd largest number (happens to be in E5), I want a formula to return E1 ("EE") and another formula to return A5 ("55"). And so on.

I'm assuming there's a way to write a dynamic formula to do this -- simply finds the exact value that I've specified, and tells me what the category (row/column) titles are. Doubt I would need to copy the row/column titles to an outer row/column so that it would work with VLOOKUP/HLOOKUP, but I'm open to that if necessary.

Any thoughts on how to do this? Thanks for your help!
