Lookup Payoff Date

Please see the attached spreadsheet. (and image file)
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
Look up Payoff date
If you need more info, ...let me know.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
Ryan ChongBusiness Systems Analyst , ex-Senior Application EngineerCommented:
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.

...Great solutions as one solutions keys off of the text, ...and the other keys off of the amount....

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. :)
