Hi there,

I've got a bit of a tricky one (well I think it is anyway).

I've got a spreadsheet that looks like the following:

A B C D E Formula in this Col
1.2 1.5 1.8 2.4 3.6
3.5 5.8 2.1 3.5 4.5

I want a formula that will look at the values and return the top line value for the highest value. In this case the answer for the first row of data would be E because 3.6 is the highest and the answer for the second row would be B because 5.8 is the highest value.

All help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Row

Thanks so much for this. What if i've now chnaged so instead of an A B C D E classification, it's giving a 1 3 5 7 10 classification?

Sorry to be a pain,
