Index/match and Isblank?

I've got an Index/Match formula that looks for the latest date on a row and references a particularly column on that row.


=INDEX((pH:pH), MATCH(MAX(Created:Created), Created:Created, 0))

I'm after a way to make it return a set text "Awaiting Results" if the cell is blank.

I tried IFERROR() but that didn't see the blank as an error. I can't seem to get ISBLANK() to do what I want either.

Anyone know how I would achieve this?

    Typo on my end. See below fixed

    =IF(ISBLANK(INDEX(pH:pH, MATCH(MAX(Created:Created), Created:Created, 0))), "Awaiting Results", INDEX(pH:pH, MATCH(MAX(Created:Created), Created:Created, 0)))
