I need to find the item in column A with the highest value in column B where the value in column C and column D also match certain criteria

Starting simply without the criteria I would use:

=index(A:A,match(max(B:B),B:B,0)

And to find a match for multiple criteria I would use:

=index(A:A,match(1,Criteria1=C:C)*(Criteria2=D:D),0))

Any suggestions for how I could combine them to find the value in column A that has the maximum result in column B and matches the criteria for the other 2 columns

Thanks in advance!

What seems to work is
=INDEX(A:A,MATCH(MAX(if(C:C=criteria1,B:B),if(D:D=criteria2,B:B)),B:B,0))
with Ctrl+shift+enter

OK - mine isn't working either


and =INDEX(A:A,MATCH(MAX(if(C:C=criteria1,if(D:D=criteria2,B:B))),B:B,0)) comes up an error too
