Hi,

I am trying to return multiple criteria based up the records with the 3 lowest date. Below is an example data set I am using.

Per.IDLocation WorkDate
1Leedsstage 1 1/1/2015LocationLeeds
2York stage 1 1/1/2015
3Leedsstage 22/1/2015per.iddate work
4Sheffield stage 1 2/4/201511/1/2015Leeds
5Leedsstage 210/5/201511/1/2015Leeds
6York stage 31/1/201611/1/2015Leeds
7Leedsstage 38/2/2015
8Sheffield stage 21/1/2016
9Leedsstage 1 14/09/2015
10Sheffield stage 31/1/2015

<colgroup><col span="4"><col><col span="6"></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>

I want to populate the table to the right with the per.id, date and work with the corresponding details from the data on the left based upon the records containing the lowest date.

I have tried using vlookups with SMALL and IF statements nested (1,2,3 LOWEST) but once if finds the lowest date if there is another date with the same value the 2nd and 3rd dates return the same data. I need a way to uniquly find the lowest date and then return the data that is in that row. HELP

Cheers,
Josh
