"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.

Try using the small function where 2 is the second smallest. This looks at the data in A1 and B1and if they are equal it returns the second smallest from A1:A6, otherwise it returns 99.

Agree with Martin that the small function can do it, but there is a condition on another column, so try this
It is an array formula, inserted with Ctrl+Shift+Enter
