Use the following formula to find out the same :

(Only when range is fixed)
=INDEX($B$3:$KV$3,MATCH(MIN(B4:KV4),B4:KV4,0))

or

(Use when ranges are dynamic)
=INDEX($3:$3,MATCH(MIN($4:$4),$4:$4,0))

Use this array function (enter with [Shift]+[Ctrl]+[Enter] in cell B5 and then copy across to the right
=MIN(OFFSET($A$3,1,MATCH(MONTH(B3),MONTH($B$3:$KV$3),0),1,DAY(EOMONTH(B3,0))))

This will show the minimum "debt to cash" value for that month only.  Note that only works if a month isn't repeated again (ex. 8/2017).

Regards,
Glenn

Hi,

pls try (even if month is repeated)

=MIN(IF((DATE(YEAR($B$3:$KV$3),MONTH($B3:$KV$3)+1,0)=EOMONTH(B3,0))*($B$4:$KV$4),($B$4:$KV$4)))

Open in new window
