That's because I can't figure out how to make Excel find the "most recent high value", since excel searches don't really like to look backwards, only forwards.


Substitute whatever cells you are actually checking for "A1:a27". For what it's worth, I use this on the Case-Schiller housing index spreadsheets to quickly check drop from peak, and use the Vlookup function in conjunction with that to determine the month in which that peak occurred.

-synchronicity, spends way too much time in Excel.
