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).

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)))
``````
