Vlookup return most recent date (value)
Hello,
I have a set of data where Column A contains an personal ID# (001). Column B contains a timestamp. My table has multiple entries for each ID# and different timestamps for each entry. I want to use a vlookup to find the MOST RECENT timestamp for EACH ID. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Ryan

Vlookup return most recent date (value)
With your data in ColA/B and the query ID in cell C1 try the below
=SUMPRODUCT(MAX(($A$2:$A$100=C1)*$B$2:$B$100))  Jacob (MVP  Excel) "ryanholliday" wrote: > Hello, > > I have a set of data where Column A contains an personal ID# (001).

This is an ARRAY formula that must be entered/edited using ctrl+shift+enter

Vlookup return most recent date (value)
Starting in D1 I have a column of unique IDs  made with Advanced Filter
In E1 I used this array formula =MAX(IF(A:A=D1,B:B)) (Array formula  so complete it with CTR+SHIFT+ENTER not just ENTER) You will need to format the cell as Date otherwise it will display the 5digit serial number of the date Copy down the column If you use ranges, make use you use absolute references as in =MAX(IF($A$1:$A$100=D1,$B$100:$B1$100)) best wishes  Bernard Liengme Microsoft Excel MVP http://people.stfx.ca/bliengme "ryanholliday" > wrote in message ... > Hello, > > I have a set of data where Column A contains an personal ID# (001). > Column > B contains a timestamp.

Vlookup return most recent date (value)
I could not get that to work... In it's current form it just returned zero. I
tried =SUMPRODUCT(MAX(($A$2:$A$100=C1), $B$2:$B$100)) But that just returned the max date regardless of the ID selected. Here is what I ended up with... =MAX(IF($A$2:$A$100=C1, $B$2:$B$100)) ***Note this is an array formula and MUST be committed using Shift + Ctrl + <Enter>  HTH...

OK. I remember a similar response from you few months back while I used
SUMPRODUCT() MAX() combination; but I found that too late to respond...It works when the criteria (here ColA) is both text and numerics...Thanks Jim  Jacob (MVP  Excel) "Jim Thomlinson" wrote: > You are correct.
