#### finding 1 formula result in a group of cells

``` I have ten cells in a row that have a formula in each. Only one of the cells
will display a result at any one time but it changes depending on the date. I
need a formula that will find the cell displaying the result and display it
in a single cell in another worksheet

```The earlier expression is generic. It will work regardless whether the result
to be returned from that group of ten cells is numeric or text.

Find a Value the first Time It Occurs

I'm still very green when it comes to code, though...

vlookup on cell below
Is it possible to do a VLOOKUP but instead of returning the value in row that contains the lookup, it returns the value in the row below? eg a b 1 no x 2 yes y 3 ok z =VLOOKUP("yes",A1:B3,2,FALSE) would return "z" instead of "y". Th only way I can think of is to add a row header at the top and use the MATCH function in column A to find the row position of "yes", then use that in an HLOOKUP in column B. I was hoping there was a simpler way. Not VLOOKUP, but INDEX & MATCH =INDEX(B1:B3,MATCH("yes",A1:A3,0)) -...
