I’d like to do a lookup on column A and return the highest number so per the example below (lookup of STT would return “2”)

Then I’d like a separate formula that used the same criteria but instead of returning what’s in column B, I’d like to return what’s in column C so per the below example it would be (lookup STT and return Lion)


Column A

STT
STT
TT
TP
TP

Column B
1
2
-3
-3
5

Column C
Tiger
Lion
Bear
Cat
Dog

That worked for the example given but if you resort the data and say have TP in the middle of STT it does not work
