Index formula

zilch4ry

Board Regular
hi all,

I THINK that to get the answer i'm after i may need to use the index formula but im not too sure how it works (i was told by someone that it would work). From the image below, does anybody know how i would list the green values to find which ever one is the highest, then instead of the highest value being shown- the time to the left of it will be shown (column D).

Hi

Code:
``=INDEX(D32:D35,MATCH(MAX(E32:E35),E32:E35,0))``

Thanks a lot, shift-del

This is a bit late but is there anything i can add to this formula which will find the answer if two values are the same?

Code:
``=INDEX(Process!D32:D35,MATCH(MAX(Process!E32:E35),Process!E32:E35,0))``

That's a totally different question.

I32, just enter:
Code:
``=COUNTIF(E32:E35,">="&I31)``

I34, control+shift+enter, not just enter, and copy down:
Code:
``````=IF(ROWS(\$I\$34:I34)<=\$I\$32,INDEX(\$D\$32:\$D\$35,
