Hi Experts,

I just need to know how do I retrieve numbers from its column  instead of values of SUMPRODUCT formula.
Column A numbers Column B Numbers.
Cell D3 using this formula =SUMPRODUCT(MAX((B1:B100)*(A1:A100)))
which returns to highest multiple value from column A & B.
But I want instead of value I want Column A Value.

Do you mean like =(MAX(A1:A30)) ?

Nope bcoz say if A1:A30 have max value @ Cell A19 = 500 but if I change B7 from 7 to 2500 then my =SUMPRODUCT(MAX((B1:B100)*(A1:A100))) result would be 175000. which is maximum multiple value of column A & B.  I need pair not value in formula returns i.e. 70 (Which is A7) and 2500 (which is B7)which have maximum multiple value.

As per Attached file.

Thanks

Or do you mean

=SUMPRODUCT(A1:A30*(A1:A30*B1:B30=MAX(A1:A30*B1:B30)))

or

maybe this

=INDEX(A1:A30,MATCH(MAX(A1:A30*B1:B30),(A1:A30)*(B1:B30),0))

Open in new window


As an array Formula

Personnaly I would use the second formual in case ther 2 time the maximum amount you would get the sum of both

in the second formula

(A1:A30)*(B1:B30) is the array of results

Match gives me the location of the first item that equals MAX(A1:A30*B1:B30) then with index I get the Nth of the array indicated in A1:A30
