Excel: Formula to return date if cumulative amount meets criteria

I have 2 columns for dates and amounts paid I want a formula which will determine the date when the cumulative of the amounts just exceeds or equals a given value. So suppose I have the following: Dates Amt 16-Jul-14 10000 1-Aug-14 4567 3-Aug-14 3000 Now suppose I have 14,000 as my "cut-off" amount. I want a formula which should return the date, 1-Aug-14 as the cumulative amount until 1-Aug is 14,567 which is just above the cutoff of 14,000. The formula should not return 3-Aug-14 even though it meets the criteria. Thanks
