In a GAMS program, I have a table with two rows and ten columns. the first row is the prices and the second row is the profit. I use the "Smax" to find the maximum profit but I can not find the price consistent with maximum profit please help me to find the corresponding price

@aazad: Do you need the corresponding index or would just the corresponding price suffice as well? Also, does the profit array contain unique elements or not?

I hope this solves your problem:

set row / price, profit /
    col / c0*c9         /
    idxMaxProfit(col)    ;

parameter t(row,col),
* Random data
t(row,col) = uniformInt(2,8);

scalar maxProfit;
maxProfit = smax(col,t('profit',col));

* All columns that have the maximum profit
idxMaxProfit(col)            = t('profit',col) = maxProfit;
* Prices of the columns with the maximum profit
priceMaxProfit(idxMaxProfit) = t('price',idxMaxProfit)

display t,idxMaxProfit,priceMaxProfit;

Best, Lutz
