How to find the maximum date within date range




The user has a range of:


42977 represents 8/29/17
42977.07 is a little later in the day.

The user needs to find the highest instance of 42977, before it reaches 42978





Where A1:A10 is the range of dates, and X1 holds the 8/29/17 date to check for.

* Array Formulas (sometimes referred to as "CSE" formulas) have to be confirmed by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Enter rather than just pressing Enter
