Hopefully not too difficult ?!?!

The question here is E7, which is a payroll number, this can appear multiple times, so in the formula below, which will go from G5 across to M5, if it picks up the same payroll number it needs to pick up the second value, instead of the first

To explain Further this is the source data

LeaveTemplate.xls
BCDEFGH
13803XLEDHM03/01/201003/01/2010
24006XDEFL04/11/200913/11/2009
33803XLELMM07/01/201008/01/2010
45034XLEPHM06/11/200915/11/2009
LeaveTemplate


Because the value 3803 (column B) appears twice, my VLOOKUP won't work. How can I pick up both?


IF(AND(R$4>=VLOOKUP($E7,LeaveTemplate'!$B$1:$H$50,6,0),R$4<=VLOOKUP($E7,LeaveTemplate'!$B$1:$H$50,7,0)),VLOOKUP($E7,LeaveTemplate'!$B$1:$H$50,3,0),BL7))

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

I think this might be heading in the right direction, however, its probably a good idea to show you where the data will appear





As you can see when on row 5 I get the lookup for staff no 4751. It will pull the first lookup which is between the 03-06 Jan but if from the source data, 4751 appears again for dates between 08-09 Jan, then it doesn't show

I guess I need to understand what it is you are doing with the information from the main spreadsheet with the data in post #3.
