This might be difficult to explain, but I'll give it a shot.

Basic overview is a table where numerical scores are entered. The scores are ranked 1, 2, and 3 based on the "Div" (Division) and the Model of the car.


DIV is located in A68 and Model is Located in A67.

The code below is for first place (highest score ("Pts") So it returns the highest score and also pulls in the "FName". Same formula for LName etc.

<code>
=IFERROR(INDEX(FName,MATCH(MAX(IF(Div=A68,Pts)*(Model=A67)),Pts,0)),"x")
</code>


Here is the second line of code that its in conflict with the code above.

<code>
=IFERROR(INDEX(LName,MATCH(MAX(IF(Div=A75,Pts)*(Model=A74)),Pts,0)),"x")
</code>

Its DIV is located in A75 and Model is Located in A74.

If both cars receive the identical score, even though they are in different DIV, excel display the same name in both categories. Break the tie and it displays correctly.

Clear as mud???

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Array formula in H2 copied down
=INDEX(Name,MATCH(MAX(IF(Div=F2,IF(Model=G2,Pts))),IF(Div=F2,IF(Model=G2,Pts)),0))
Ctrl+Shift+Enter

Observe the part in red. Instead of just Pts the formula uses IF(Div=F2,IF(Model=G2,Pts)) as the lookup_array

Thank you very much! I thought this was going to be difficult to explain and very little response. You nailed it!

Can the same be applied to 2nd and third place code?

<code>
=IFERROR(INDEX(Entry,MATCH(LARGE(IF(Div=A68,Pts)*(Model=A67),2),Pts,0)),"x")
</code>

I modified it, but get a "to few augment error"

<code>
=INDEX(Entry,MATCH(LARGE(IF(Div=A68,IF(Model=A67,Pts))),IF(Div=A68,IF(Model=A67,Pts)),0))
</code>
