1. ## Conflict with

This might be difficult to explain, but I'll give it a shot.

Basic overview is a table where numerical scores are entered. The scores are ranked 1, 2, and 3 based on the "Div" (Division) and the Model of the car.

DIV is located in A68 and Model is Located in A67.

The code below is for first place (highest score ("Pts") So it returns the highest score and also pulls in the "FName". Same formula for LName etc.

=IFERROR(INDEX(FName,MATCH(MAX(IF(Div=A68,Pts)*(Model=A67)),Pts,0)),"x")

Here is the second line of code that its in conflict with the code above.

=IFERROR(INDEX(LName,MATCH(MAX(IF(Div=A75,Pts)*(Model=A74)),Pts,0)),"x")

Its DIV is located in A75 and Model is Located in A74.

If both cars receive the identical score, even though they are in different DIV, excel display the same name in both categories. Break the tie and it displays correctly.

Clear as mud???

2. ## Re: Conflict with

See if this example helps

 A B C D E F G H 1 Name Div Model Pts Division Model Name? 2 Name1 Div1 M1 10 Div1 M1 Name1 3 Name2 Div1 M1 8 Div2 M2 Name5 4 Name3 Div1 M1 9 5 Name4 Div2 M2 9 6 Name5 Div2 M2 10 7 Name6 Div2 M2 8

Array formula in H2 copied down
=INDEX(Name,MATCH(MAX(IF(Div=F2,IF(Model=G2,Pts))),IF(Div=F2,IF(Model=G2,Pts)),0))
Ctrl+Shift+Enter

Observe the part in red. Instead of just Pts the formula uses IF(Div=F2,IF(Model=G2,Pts)) as the lookup_array

Thank you very much! I thought this was going to be difficult to explain and very little response. You nailed it!

4. ## Re: Conflict with

Can the same be applied to 2nd and third place code?

=IFERROR(INDEX(Entry,MATCH(LARGE(IF(Div=A68,Pts)*(Model=A67),2),Pts,0)),"x")

I modified it, but get a "to few augment error"

=INDEX(Entry,MATCH(LARGE(IF(Div=A68,IF(Model=A67,Pts))),IF(Div=A68,IF(Model=A67,Pts)),0))

5. ## Re: Conflict with

Something like this

 A B C D E F G H 1 Name Div Model Pts Division Model Name? 2 Name1 Div1 M1 10 Div1 M1 Name1 3 Name2 Div1 M1 8 Div2 M2 Name5 4 Name3 Div1 M1 9 5 Name4 Div2 M2 9 Second Largest 6 Name5 Div2 M2 10 Div1 M1 Name3 7 Name6 Div2 M2 8 Div2 M2 Name4 8

Array Formula in H6 copied down
=INDEX(Name,MATCH(LARGE(IF(Div=F6,IF(Model=G6,Pts)),2),IF(Div=F6,IF(Model=G6,Pts)),0))
Ctrl+Shift+Enter

6. ## Re: Conflict with

forgot the "2"!

Works perfect.

I read up on the diff between =index and Iferror

thanks this was a huge help!
