Hi Steve, et al,

Further to Johnny's question, how is the CSV delimited. Do you just have commas between values or are some values also quoted in " ".
There are no " "'s, all comma separated.

When I import a simple CSV using Sheet>Insert sheet from file I can set the simple date column as type date at import and using the MAXIFS solution proposed by Michael [ in my test =MAXIFS($C$2:$C$18,$B$2:$B$18,">="&G2,$B2:$B$18,"<"&(G2+1)) ] works well in a test.

Steve, As a courtesy I have sent you a month's worth of data in a csv file downloaded from my Ambient Weather station cloud account. Try it, as by no means is it a simple one especially when all you want is the rainfall on each of the days of the month. into Base
My understanding is that VLOOKUP only returns 1 value, rather than a vector from which to determine a date.

I believe what I need to accomplish cannot be done with VLOOKUP and that a combination of INDEX(MATCH()) is a better solution especially given that the RAW Data file import is going to grow approximately 1MB per month, despite being just .csv type.

Moving on from this means that the whole file should preferably be manipulated in Base.
Great idea. I currently do a similar thing loading the data csv file direct into MySQL every day with a Perl script and then display my queries and analysis in web pages for our employees using PHP. For me this is much simpler and more flexible and than Calc or Base, especially in a multi-user environment

Sorry for wasting everyone's time, Base questions coming soon 0:)
