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).

Thanks in advance;)

Hi

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

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))

Images are not useful for the data it represents cannot be loaded/copied into the Excel cells. Re-typing means extra work... That said:
