    Date calculation based on data in a spreadsheet to identify start date for material

    I have a spreadsheet that has a row range showing inventory depletion. The headers to these rows have a date. I also have a cell with a number in that represents how many days it takes to manufacture a lot of material. I need to identify when inventory turns negative in the first range, then look at the date in the header of that column, then calculate the start date going backwards from that date based on the number in the cell I have identified is the manufacturing time. No idea how to write this?

    Hi Ikench,

    Thanks for updating the thread title...

    I believe you can use the good mix of the formulas like Offset/ Match / Workday etc.. would suggest you to upload the sample workbook. thanks.

    OK, I worked it out, but had to break it down into 3 cells.

    Cell 1 (AA8) was used to calculate the quantity closest to 0. =INDEX(K8:V8,MATCH(MIN(ABS(K8:V8-AA$4)),ABS(K8:V8-AA$4),0))
    Cell 2 (AB8) was used to calculate the date at the top of the column closest to 0. =INDEX($K$7:$V$7,MATCH(AA8,INDEX($K$8:$V$81,MATCH(I8,I$8:I$81,0),0),0))
    Cell 3 (AC8) was used to count back days from AB8 based on a given lead time. =SUM(AB8-D$2)

    Probably an easier way but this is how I got it, and it works.
