vlookup

how can I do a vlookup using data from a pivot table?.  MAX function seems to work ok but unable to resolve for vlookup after a copule of attempts - see sample sheet.  Basically want to return the corresponding (group) value for determined max value in table. I believe getpivot data function should work but obviously current formula wrong.

excellent - thankyou.  Out of interest were any of my attempts valid or not applicable as PT? WOULD GETPIVOTDATA work as another solution?
