A little embarrassed to ask for help on this one, but after nearly an hour I'm stuck!


Have two columns of (ordered, low to high) numeric data. Eg:

A1 to A10 = 1.50, 2.00, 2.50, 3.00, 3.50, 4.00, 4.50, 5.00, 5.50, 6.00
B1 to B10 = 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

For A1 (1.50), I want to search Column B and return the first value greater than A1 (2) - from cell B2.
For A4 (3.00), I want to search Column B and return the first value greater than A4 (4) - from cell B3.


I've got a feeling there's in {ARRAY} in there somewhere, maybe a MIN(ROW(.... or even a HLOOKUP(...

I know I'm close and will hate myself when somebody solves this in 30secs but as I said, have been stuck for too long on it myself!


Thanks.
