Find the first or last value greater than a specific value with formulas


Take the following data for example, I need to find the first number in column A which is greater than 150.

doc-first-number-greater-than-1

Please enter this formula: =INDEX(A2:A16,MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(A2:A16>150,0),)) (A2:A16 is the data range that you want to use, 150 is the specific number of the criteria you want to greater than), and then press Enter key, you will get the first number which is greater than 150. See screenshot:

doc-first-number-greater-than-2

Note: To find the last number which is greater than 150, you should apply this formula: =LOOKUP(9.999999999999E+307,IF(A2:A16>150,A2:A16)), and then press Ctrl +Shift + Enter keys together to get the correct result, see screenshot:
