I have the following data in cells a1 - b9:

What i need is the most recent (max) date for the range of column A items by group: For example: EG-30428 would be 24-APR-10; EG-30492 would be 21-JUL-10; EG-30493 would be 18-JUL-10. I've tried inputting DateValue in col C (referencing col B), then applied Index nested with Match and Max, etc.

Can't seem to figure this one out. Assistance is much appreciated.

Thanks

Round to nearest half hour?
Use =MROUND(A2,"0:30") to round to nearest half hour. Use =CEILING(A2,"0:30") to round to next half hour.

Try...

Control+shift+enter, not just enter:

=MAX(IF($A$1:$A$9="EG-30428",$B$1:$B$9))

Hello Bill, welcome to MrExcel

If you want to show the latest date against the first of each group try this formula in C1 copied down

=IF(COUNTIF(A1:A$9,A1)=COUNTIF(A$1:A$9,A1),MAX(B1,INDEX(B1:B$9,COUNTIF(A1:A$9,A1))+0),"")

Aladin, here is the output from your suggestion (some alignment issues from the paste. The results show the max date of all the data not just the specific group. For example, I would have expected EG-30428 to return a date of 24-Apr-10 (omit date formating).

A1:B10 houses the group and date data, including the headers.

C2, control+shift+enter, not just enter, and copy down:

=MAX(IF($A$2:$A$10=A2,$B$2:$B$10))

This formula does not assume any sorting order.

I appreciate your patience. I must be doing something wrong when pasting your formula, my data does change. Perhaps I am misunderstanding your control+shift+enter?

Thank you Barry. Your formula is a bit longer than one your shared previously using the Min function. What is the purpose of control+shift+enter?

You need to confirm the formula by pressing the control and shift keys, while you hit the enter key at the same time.
