Try:

=INDEX(Table92[ResultDate],MATCH(G6&"_"&MAX(IF(Table92[code]=G6,Table92[LookupDate])),Table92[code]&"_"&Table92[LookupDate],0))

Open in new window


confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER not just ENTER and copy down

The following seems to work for me in H6:

=INDEX(A:A,MIN(IF((Table92[ccode]=G6)*(MAX(IF(Table92[ccode]=G6,Table92[LookupDate],""))=Table92[LookupDate]),ROW(Table92[ccode]),10^99)),1)

Note that ccode = code
