How to avoid #N/A values in an array with Index - Match

In my workbook is a worksheet with some simple test data.

Row 5, 7, 9 are paste values from the general workbook. Row 5 has all numeric values. Row 7 & 9 have some values that are #N/A by default as to allow for graphing purposes.
The formula I use is: {=INDEX(B5:FZ5,MATCH(MIN(IF(B5:FZ5-K12>=0,B5:FZ5,FALSE)),IF(B5:FZ5-K12>=0,B5:FZ5,FALSE),0))} as an array and works perfectly in Row 5 since there are no #N/A values there.

How do I get the same formula to ignore the #N/A values in Rows 7 & 9 and still give me a proper result?

HI,

pls try in O12

as Array formula

=IFERROR(INDEX(B7:NB7,MATCH(MIN(IFERROR(IF(B7:NB7-K12>=0,B7:NB7,FALSE),FALSE)),IFERROR(IF(B7:NB7-K12>=0,B7:NB7,FALSE),FALSE),0)),"")

Not for points as already Rgonzo provided the answer. I made the corrections in the workbook and attached it as need to make a small comment you should ALWAYS account for IFERROR in these formulas even if you feel that some of them could be ok without.

Just a question you requested to change the formula in the red cells but question is how you get the data in row 7 and 9 only from these red cells ? or there is also other formulas ??? as we only see values except the red cells and the ones beside it which have been all corrected. So if you have somewhere else also formulas you also need to account for an IFERROR as you may possibly get some #NA coming from other places.

Still here waiting to help you on the other pending issues when time is right for you.
