Dear Experts,

Yesterday on EE I got two solutions to select the countries which have the highest selling numbers in a row on below printscreen:

Concretely the applied formulas are =OFFSET($A$1, 0, MATCH( MAX(B2:E2),B2:E2)) and =INDEX($B$1:$E$1,MATCH(MAX(B2:E2),B2:E2)), basically both are working except the red marked scenario (where Sweden has 4 as selling and both formulas select Norway incorrectly)

Could you please advise which formula would give correct value for all the scenarios?

Thanks in advance,

oooops, try use this formula instead:

=OFFSET($A$1, 0, MATCH( MAX(B2:E2),B2:E2, 0))

or

=INDEX($B$1:$E$1,MATCH(MAX(B2:E2),B2:E2, 0))
