Here is my issue, I want to find the minimum value of the second line, but return the value located two rows above it....so 3

I thought this formula was going to work but no such luck

=OFFSET(CELL("address",INDEX(C1:C4,MATCH(MIN(C1:C4),C1:C4,0))),-2,0)

Help, Thanks!

For reference, CELL("Address",???) returns the address as a text string, so you would need to use INDIRECT(CELL("Address",???)) to return a valid range. The same applies to the ADDRESS(row,column) function, and possibly others that don't spring to mind.

As peter's suggestion shows, there is (usually) a way to achieve the same result without the need to nest several functions.
