need a formula to find the column where an array crosses a certain threshold

so need to find the column number where that happens

threshold is 19,000 , looking for the first time an array crosses that mark

note- an array is between columns H-CA

then i need to sum the NEXt twelve columns of data.

so for example, if COL M has 17,500 AND col N has 19,400, and this was first time we crossed 19,000 (ie it didnt happen in colmns A-L, then i  need to sum columns O-Z

need to do this across rows 7-480

Check entering below function using keyboard combinations Ctrl+Shift+Enter

=AVERAGE(INDIRECT(ADDRESS(7,SMALL(IF(H7:CA700>=19000,COLUMN(H7:CA700),),1))& ":"&ADDRESS(700,SMALL(IF(H7:CA700>=19000,COLUMN(H7:CA700),),1)+11),1))

Unfortunately I have no access now to excel but same function is working in google sheets. Check this link https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11OqfWNeAo99TPlqHO3kzK2CSqkl3Ee98JNscRh83ROY

I will test function using excel tomorrow if you didn't get solution. Can you please post dummy data sample that shows what you are trying to achieve?

So if a value greater than 19000 (say 19400) is found in column N, do you want to sum the values in the range O7:Z480?
If so, try this Array Formula which requires confirmation with Ctrl+Shift+Enter instead of Enter alone.

I have logged off as it is 2 AM here and on mobile right now. I will check it tomorrow.
Btw do you mean if 19400 is found in N15, you want to sum only O15:Z15?
