Excel formula needed to Return text ID that its sum has Maximum Value

Hello,

I need help with a formula solution. Please open the attached sample file.
I need to find the desired result shown in Column F based on the sample data from column A to E
first condition is, the dominant category should be run for each unique Order ID and second criteria is to exclude any amount where the values of Column D and E do not match (I highlighted them in red text) then sum order total for each category ID for each Unique Order ID and then see which of the category ID has the maximum value then whatever category ID has the max value for that specific Order ID then in Column F populate with formula the category ID which has the Maximum sum per that Order ID.

might be a easy formula, but could not get my head around it.

any help is appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

I don't believe a formula can do what you want. I could however provide a macro so please let me know if that's OK.

A few questions up front.

1.    Is column F needed by you?
2.    You say "exclude any amount where the values of Column D and E do not match" but it looks like you mean C and D. Please confirm.
3.    Do you need the colors?

thanks Martin.

yes i meant column C and D.  i do not need any colors. i only used colors so that it is easy to understand the question.   Column F is the needed result, after runnign the macro the result should appear as it is portrayed in the sample in Column F.

thanks alot.

Try this.

Sub Dominant()
Dim lngLastRow As Long
Dim lngRow As Long
Dim lngStartRow As Long
Dim lngMarkRow As Long
Dim strOrderID As String
Dim lngDomRow As Long

lngLastRow = Range("A1048576").End(xlUp).Row
strOrderID = Range("A2").Value
lngDomRow = 2
lngStartRow = 2

For lngRow = 2 To lngLastRow + 1
    If Cells(lngRow, "A").Value = strOrderID Then
        If Cells(lngRow, "C").Value = Cells(lngRow, "D").Value Then
            If Cells(lngRow, "B").Value > Cells(lngDomRow, "B").Value Then
                lngDomRow = lngRow
            End If
        End If
    Else
        For lngMarkRow = lngStartRow To lngRow - 1
            Cells(lngMarkRow, "F").Value = Cells(lngDomRow, "E")
            strOrderID = Cells(lngRow, "A").Value
            lngStartRow = lngRow
        Next
    End If
Next

thanks Martin.

but it did not seem to solve the issue, becuase if you change the cell B6 to One million then run the macro it still bring Apple while the Banana amount is the highest and it should result banana

I changed a bunch of other values to test various conditions and this seems to work.

Sub Dominant()
Dim lngLastRow As Long
Dim lngRow As Long
Dim lngStartRow As Long
Dim lngMarkRow As Long
Dim strOrderID As String
Dim lngDomRow As Long

lngLastRow = Range("A1048576").End(xlUp).Row
strOrderID = Range("A2").Value
lngDomRow = 2
lngStartRow = 2

For lngRow = 2 To lngLastRow + 1
    If Cells(lngRow, "A").Value = strOrderID Then
        If UCase(Cells(lngRow, "C").Value) = UCase(Cells(lngRow, "D").Value) Then
            If lngDomRow = 0 Then
                lngDomRow = lngRow
            End If
            If Cells(lngRow, "B").Value > Cells(lngDomRow, "B").Value Then
                lngDomRow = lngRow
            End If
        End If
    Else
        For lngMarkRow = lngStartRow To lngRow - 1
            Cells(lngMarkRow, "F").Value = Cells(lngDomRow, "E")
        Next
        strOrderID = Cells(lngRow, "A").Value
        lngStartRow = lngRow
        lngDomRow = 0 'lngRow
    End If
Next
End Sub
