How about something like this:

=MATCH(MAX(B:B),B:B,0)

It will only find the 1st one in the event of a tie.

I want to do almost the same thing. I want to check column B for the highest value, but also return the corresponding value in column A, which has the date the highest value occurred.
Thanks.

Try this:

=INDEX(A:A,MATCH(MAX(B:B),B:B,0))

Again, the 1st occurrence will be used in the event of a tie.
