I am needing an excel formula to search with specific variables and return the most recent date out of a list.

I am using the following formula that has almost all of the variables I need, except for the part that with search through the list of dates, and return the most recent.

The column with the date in it would be: ('R:\Reports\Count\[Count.xlsx]MFDATA'!$Q$2:$Q$5000

And I know a sumproduct is not what I am needing, I was trying to using an index/match with the MAX function but was having problems with all of the variables.,

I need to make sure that it returns the max value ONLY IF Column Q has values in it. For example, if there were 4 diff dates in column Q, it returns the most recent! GREAT!!

If there are only 1 date out of 4 instances of it matching that in column q:

So even if 3 out of 4 instances of a match contain a date, then you want a blank?

yes sir....I am returning it on a prod sheet and dont want to show the last date until the project has dates in every field, thus signifying the project is closed.

Okay, I tried my original formula and it works fine on your sample workbook.

I only removed the filenames but left the sheetnames and references in tact.

I moved the formulas to MFINFO sheet, in A1 copied to A2.

Formula in A1 references Q10 and A2 references Q11. I changed the column B values in lower table of MFDATA sheet to 200 so that I didn't have to change the formula to accommodate separate tables.

You will see that I got the expected results.

Please review and see what might be different in your original file.

P.S.

I am confused about your statement

Yes, I need to reference B2:B550 twice. Once to find matching number codes, and once to exclude a set of number codes from a specific list.

If you are looking for a specific criteria (like 100), then that will automatically exclude anything that may be in D2:D7. I mean the two checks are mutually exclusive....
