Dear Experts,

Can you please have a short look on the attached file, basically on 'Sheet1' there is a small table with Products, which contains selling numbers per Countries (from column A to E):
Count and Select
Could you advise which Excel formula could provide result as color marked in column F? The logic of it is selecting that country from the header, which has the Max of selling at the certain product.

Thanks in advance,
