OR(E22:J22=$R$2:$R$17)

This brings back true, there is one and only one true, I just need to bring back that true value.


I tried : Match(true, OR(E22:J22=$R$2:$R$17), 0), to get the number, but it didn't seem to work.

If there is only one, this array formula perhaps?

=SUM(IF(E22:J22=$R$2:$R$17,R2:R17))

I must say I'm surprised your (array) formula worked at all.

Try this formula

=INDEX(E22:J22,MATCH(1,INDEX((COUNTIF($R$2:$R$17,E22:J22)>0)+0,0),0))
