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 a certain number in a cell.  looking for the first time an array crosses that mark

note- an array is between columns H-CA

once it hits that sum threshold, NOWi need to sum the NEXt twelve columns of data.

Use the following formula:

The code is shown below:
Function SumAfterThreshold(rgToCheck As Range, LookAhead As Long, TargetValue As Double, Optional IncludePivotCell As Long = 0) As Variant
'Examines values in rgToCheck. When one of those equals or exceeds TargetValue, then sums the specified number of LookAhead columns.
'If LookAhead is 0, then all remaining columns in rgToCheck are included in the sum
'If IncludePivotCell is 0, it is not included in looking forward sum.
'If IncludePivotCell is 1, it is included in looking forward sum
Dim cel As Range, Finish As Range, rgAhead As Range
Dim dLookAhead As Double
Dim FinishAddr As String
Dim i As Long, j As Long
Set Finish = rgToCheck.Cells(rgToCheck.Cells.Count)
FinishAddr = Finish.Address
SumAfterThreshold = "Failed"

For Each cel In rgToCheck.Cells
    If cel.Value >= TargetValue Then
        Set rgAhead = Nothing
        dLookAhead = 0
        Select Case IncludePivotCell
        Case 0
            If Not cel.Address = FinishAddr Then Set rgAhead = cel.Offset(0, 1)
        Case 1
            Set rgAhead = cel
        End Select
        If Not rgAhead Is Nothing Then
            j = IIf(LookAhead = 0, Finish.Column, Application.Min(Finish.Column, rgAhead.Column + LookAhead - 1))
            Set rgAhead = Range(rgAhead, rgAhead.EntireRow.Cells(1, j))
            dLookAhead = Application.Sum(rgAhead)
        End If
        SumAfterThreshold = dLookAhead
        Exit Function
    End If
End Function
