Apologize, Im not fluent in excel vocabulary yet. please, bare with me.
Im trying to find the "lowest bid" in a divisional formula for B2 through F3
And then have the =INDEX of the vendor name (ex: Vendor #1, Vendor #2, etc) show in column I (Vendor Name Column)
I'm Looking for a formula for Price and weight per ounce. The Lowest price per ounce Vendor Name enters into Column I "Vendor Name".
=> example: if the same product costs $17 for 18oz from Vendor #1, and 6.99 for 12 oz. from Vendor #2,
What formula to have the price per ounce EQUAL the lowest bid. (where vendor #2 is cheaper than Vendor #1 per ounce)
Lowest price per ounce = lowest bid.
Where the B2/B3 is the price per oz.
I need to have the "Vendor Name" column recognize this divisional formula and =INDEX the name
What I have in the "Low Bid' Column H only equals B2/B3 and not the entire B2/B3 : F3 comparison
Column H Formula : =MIN(B2:F3, B2/B3)
-( which gives only B2:B3 as answer for "low Bid" per ounce.)
Column I Formula : =INDEX($B$1:$F$1,MATCH(H2,B2:F2,0))
Note: only columns B2:B3 have this formula which equals the #N/A for I2.
If this isn't enough information, I apologize, please ask and I'm happy to share
heres the example:

That could be
for Low Bid
for Vendor name. Also in attached file.
Thank You Mr. Sergei, works perfectly.
