Tom’s Tutorials For Excel: Reverse Lookup of nth Highest and nth Lowest Numbers

Here are several examples rolled into one screen shot that show how to:
• Return the minimum and maximum numbers in a list.
• Return the 2nd, 3rd, and nth highest and lowest numbers in a list.
• Lookup in reverse (to the left) of the aforementioned numbers in a table.

The formula in cell G2 is =INDEX(A2:A27,MATCH(MIN(D2:D27),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell H2 is =INDEX(B2:B27,MATCH(MIN(D2:D27),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell I2 is =INDEX(C2:C27,MATCH(MIN(D2:D27),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell J2 is =MIN(D2:D27)

The formula in cell G3 is =INDEX(A2:A27,MATCH(SMALL(D2:D27,2),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell H3 is =INDEX(B2:B27,MATCH(SMALL(D2:D27,2),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell I3 is =INDEX(C2:C27,MATCH(SMALL(D2:D27,2),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell J3 is =SMALL(D2:D27,2)

The formula in cell G4 is =INDEX(A2:A27,MATCH(SMALL(D2:D27,3),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell H4 is =INDEX(B2:B27,MATCH(SMALL(D2:D27,3),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell I4 is =INDEX(C2:C27,MATCH(SMALL(D2:D27,3),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell J4 is =SMALL(D2:D27,3)

The formula in cell G7 is =INDEX(A2:A27,MATCH(MAX(D2:D27),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell H7 is =INDEX(B2:B27,MATCH(MAX(D2:D27),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell I7 is =INDEX(C2:C27,MATCH(MAX(D2:D27),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell J7 is =MAX(D2:D27)

The formula in cell G8 is =INDEX(A2:A27,MATCH(LARGE(D2:D27,2),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell H8 is =INDEX(B2:B27,MATCH(LARGE(D2:D27,2),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell I8 is =INDEX(C2:C27,MATCH(LARGE(D2:D27,2),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell J8 is =LARGE(D2:D27,2)

The formula in cell G9 is =INDEX(A2:A27,MATCH(LARGE(D2:D27,3),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell H9 is =INDEX(B2:B27,MATCH(LARGE(D2:D27,3),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell I9 is =INDEX(C2:C27,MATCH(LARGE(D2:D27,3),D2:D27,0))
The formula in cell J9 is =LARGE(D2:D27,3)
