Hi guys,

I'm trying to get the last entry of data from my database per person.

The database looks a little like this:
PersonDate of Entry
A1/1/2014
B1/1/2014
A2/2/2014
B3/3/2014

<tbody>
</tbody>

On a different sheet I want column 2 to look like this:
A2/2/2014
B3/3/2014

<tbody>
</tbody>

Do I use a VLOOKUP, INDEX with SUMPRODUCT inside or something else completely?

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.
