Automatically insert a date value based on the value from another cell
I have a spread sheet that has the following info: Column A = Date, Columns B = times associated with shifts, i.e. B4 = 11 p.m.  7 a.m.; C4 = 7 a.m.  3 p.m.; D4 = 3 p.m.  11 a.m. So A5:A237 is a date, B5237 is a number based on the amount of water used for each shift for that day. For each day of the month and for each shift our operators input the water demand during their shift. In my spreadsheet cell C1 looks for the highest number in the range B5462. That number becomes the value in C1. In cell C3 I want the value to be the corresponding date from Column A. In other words, if the highest number is 5 and it's in cell C6, then cell C1 = 5. A6 is the corresponding date. I want C3 to equal A6. I hope someone can understand my question and help me.

Hi
Name range A4237 as DataTable Name the ranges of data in columns B to D whatever you like (for this leave them as B to D) =INDEX(Datatable,MATCH(C6,C,0),1) Should be ok Danny "cmartin2459" wrote: > > I have a spread sheet that has the following info: > Column A = Date, Columns B = times associated with shifts, i.e. B4 = > 11 p.m.  7 a.m.; C4 = 7 a.m.  3 p.m.; D4 = 3 p.m.  11 a.m. So > A5:A237 is a date, B5237 is a number based on the amount of water > used for each shift for that day. > > For each day of the month and for each shift our operators input the > water demand during their shift. > > In my spreadsheet cell C1 looks for the highest number in the range > B5462.

I tried your suggestion Danny. But it doesn't like the second C.  cmartin2459  cmartin2459's Profile: http://www.excelforum.com/member.php...o&userid=36530 View this thread: http://www.excelforum.com/showthread...hreadid=562866

You need to rename the range C5:C237 to C, for example.

Automatically insert a date value based on the value from another
Try this formula:
=INDEX(A5:A237,MAX((ROW(B5237)ROW(B5)+1)*(B5237=MAX(B5237)))) Note that this is an array formula, so instead of just hitting Enter after typing the formula, you should use CtrlShiftEnter. Excel will automatically put { } around the formula if done correctly Simon "cmartin2459" wrote: > > I have a spread sheet that has the following info: > Column A = Date, Columns B = times associated with shifts, i.e. B4 = > 11 p.m.  7 a.m.; C4 = 7 a.m.  3 p.m.; D4 = 3 p.m.  11 a.m. So > A5:A237 is a date, B5237 is a number based on the amount of water > used for each shift for that day. > > For each day of the month and for each shift our operators input the > water demand during their shift. > > In my spreadsheet cell C1 looks for the highest number in the range > B5462.
