# Get latest value from table based on multiple criteria

Hi all

This one is driving me mad.

Can anyone suggest a formula that will always get the latest value (and ignore blank values) from a table?

Week -----Period ------Value
1                   1               -£377
2                   1                £219
3                   1                £759
4                   1               -£1,106
1                   1                £302
2                   1                £409
3                   1                -£160
4                   1                -£151
1                   1
2                   1                 £0
3                   1                 £45
4                   1

In the above data, I am after a formula that will always display the latest value based on two conditions and ignore blank values. E.g

If week = 4 & Period = 1, latest value to return is = -£151

I have managed to get an index match and lookup formula working for this need, however they both include the blank cells. I want the formula to ignore blank or zero values.

Many thanks

Let's say you enter the week (4) in E2 and the Period (1) in F2.

Formula in G2, confirmed with Ctrl+Shift+Enter to turn it into an array formula:

=INDEX(C2:C13,MAX((A2:A13=E2)*(B2:B13=F2)*(C2:C13<>0)*(ROW(A2:A13)-ROW(A1))))

=XLOOKUP(1, (Week=4)*(Period=1)*ISNUMBER(Value), Value,,,-1)

would be my preference, but

=LOOKUP(2, 1/(Week=4)/(Period=1)/ISNUMBER(Value),Value)

should still work.

Super thanks, this was what I was already using minus the isnumber check! thanks again

brilliant works well, just will prefer to use lookup as already got that in place. thanks for your solution
