Excel Look up Function

Posted on 2014-03-23

I need a formula to fill in the date in column B when there is a Value of 2 in the row
So Name 1 should have a Last Visit date of 03/03/2014 Name 2 02/02/2014 and Name 3 03/03/2014

The date needs to be the Date in row 2 that is above the FIRST value of 2 that is in that row.
Needs to be dynamic so I can drag it down a couple of thousand rows

Put this formula in B3 and Drag it down as much as you have data. I have set the Columns to go till Col Z but if you have more dates beyond Col Z change the Z to the last Column of data.

Put this Formula in B3 and drag it down.

Congratulation on your Icon Conditional formatting very neat.
