# How to Use two search criteria in one array.

Hi friends, having had no success with previous post, this one may be
more understandable.(INDEX,MATCH) array requiring two Match's in same
index.

A B C D
(cell="F")
1 Symbol Date Price
2 F 01/15/10 6.28
3 LSI 02/05/10 5.00
4 F 05/02/10 15.00

{=INDEX(A2:C4,MATCH(D1,A2:A4,0),3)}

The above formula works fine except it returns "6.28", the first date
and Price for Symbol "F".

It needs to be extended to include a similar match for the LAST Date,
Column(B) that "F" appears in, i.e. 15.00 Column C(3).

Any Help ASAP is Greatly Appreciated.

Here is a "semi-solution":

=SUMPRODUCT((A2:A4="F")*(B2:B4=MAX(B2:B4))*(C2:C4))

The reason its only "semi" is that it finds the row with "F" and the
latest date and not the last date. Good enough if the dates are
sorted.

I thank Mr. Ravenswood for his efforts, BUT, it appears his formula
returns a result based on a selection matching the largest date,
rather than largest date matching my selection, and then returning
associated same row data.
