# Lookup Payoff Date

What I would like to do is lookup the earliest Payoff date.

For example, if I pay 350 per day, the payoff date should be 1/30/2015
if I pay 400 per day, the payoff date should be 1/26/2015

thanks ryan,

Sorry if I was not clear
What you have works, ...but I want to use this as a visual aid, ...so I want to see all the dates and amounts,...
I want the payoff date to appear in cell H2 (along with all the data)
...as shown in the screenshot and the sample file.

if you mean to get the first Date with Status = "Paid Off", you probably can put this formula in Cell H2:
``````=INDEX(B:B, MATCH("Paid Off",E:E,0))
``````

Try this...

The following formula will return the data from column B where the amount in column C becomes 0 or less than 0, that will be your payoff date.

``````=INDEX(B2:B36,MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(C2:C36<=0,),0))
``````

You welcome Jeffrey!

I preferred Amount column as this is the base column for all the calculations where as the text column is dependent column and it also depends on Amount. :)
