I have a table in Numbers, and I'm trying to get the value of the first cell that contains the character
…. In order to do so, I wanted to use
MATCH(), but had no luck after I realized it could only traverse 2 dimensions. Instead, I've set up a table on another sheet that looks like so:
The numbers at the far left are the row numbers of the rows in the table with the actual data.
Row Contains Cell is exactly what it sounds like: whether or not that row contains the desired cell. To figure that out, I used
MATCH() per row.
What I need to figure out now is how to find which row is not the wrong row. It would be easy to look for a cell that says
not, but I need to find a cell with a variable value that is not equal to
not. I want to find the row name (or value of the cell to the left, in column
A) for that cell (in this case,
2) and the value of the cell itself in column
What would be the formula for
Correct Row and
Correct Column, given what I'm looking for?
I know people have already done this for Excel, but I can't figure it out for Numbers.
I'm open to solutions that require Applescript.
