    Return Title to matched column

    I have a spreedsheet of data. Bsically it contains various products and
    various suppliers. The products are listed down the left side and the
    suppliers along the top row. There is obviously more than one price per
    product ie from each individual supplier. I have set up a basic min function
    to return the cheapest price and a VERY complicated IF set of formulas to
    return the suppliers names at present. However my biggest problem at
    theminute is that i have more than 7 suppliesr and wish to simply get the
    minimum number in the row to be represented by the cheapest suppliers name in
    a set column. Hope you can help . . . I think it may be the HLookup that i
    need ot use but i am having trouble

    Assuming data is in cols A to K, data from row2 down, with products listed
    in col A and suppliers' quotes in cols B to K (10 suppliers, say)

    Put in L2, copy down:
    =INDEX($B$1:$K$1,MATCH(MIN(B2:K2),B2:K2,0))

    Note that in the event of any ties in the lowest prices,
    only the leftmost lowest price supplier will be extracted
