```Dates in column A; values in B
Then =INDEX(A1:A9,MATCH(MAX(B1:B9),B1:B9,0))
Returns the date corresponding the max value in B
Is this what was needed?

```Kind of... I need it to return the date corresponding to the max value
in B, C or D and cannot seem to come up with the formula to look at
all three columns.

I appreciate the help!

```Try these array formulas**:

For the MAX:

=INDEX(A1:A10,MAX((B1:D10=MAX(B1:D10))*ROW(B1:D10)-MIN(ROW(B1:D10))+1))

Format the cell as DATE

Note that if there are duplicate MAX values the formula will return the date
for the *LAST* instance of the max value.

For the MIN:

=INDEX(A1:A10,MIN(IF(B1:D10=MIN(B1:D10),ROW(B1:D10)-MIN(ROW(B1:D10))+1)))

Format the cell as DATE

Note that if there are duplicate MIN values the formula will return the date
for the *FIRST* instance of the min value.

** array formulas need to be entered using the key combination of
CTRL,SHIFT,ENTER (not just ENTER)

Chart
Hello, I created a line column chart on 2 axis. I have four data sets. The first 3 should go on the primary Y axis as columns and the 4th should go on the secondary Y axis as a line. However, Excel wants to automatically put both the 3rd and 4th data sets on the secondary axis as lines. I cannot find any command to change the 3rd data set to go onto the primary axis as a column.
