What I need is a formula that would tell me which month a category changed to the number 2. So with ref below, category b changed to 2 in March. I would like the formula to leave a blank space if the current number isn't 2.
Cat Mnth Current Jan Feb Mar Apr May
a Feb 2 3 2 2 2 2
b Mar 2 3 4 2 2 2
c Apr 2 4 4 4 2 2
d 3 4 4 3 3 3
I look forward to hearing from you.
Assuming "Cat" is in A1, then in B2 I put in this formula
doing Ctrl+shift+enter rather than just enter to commit the formula (since it is an array formula).
Now select B2 and drag fill down to your last row.
I assumed you would go all the way out to column O for the month December.
It seemed to work for me as I understand the requirement.
