This will return the row number

=MATCH(LARGE(D37000,C7050),D,False)

Many thanks it was very helpful

but why we should put false and not zero

False forces an exact match - and is more in line with Excel's Help explanation of the MATCH
function, so it is easier to read and understand than using numbers for True or False.

I'm sorry - I was confusing the help for MATCH with the help for VLOOKUP - so I guess my answer
really is that using False is a habit I got into to force exact matches in the match and lookup
functions...
