# Finding Maximum In A Variable Range?

Aug 6, 2013
I am now working on an excel spreadsheet which will automatically update every day so that one row will be added on the top of the sheet everyday.i.e.

A1 Date Price

A2 (New row added,date) (New row added,price)

A3 16/1/2013 5.5

A4 15/1/2013 5.6

A5 14/1/2013 5.45

... ...

Assuming that I am looking for maximum value of the column "Price", since max() cannot be applied to variable range, is there other method I could useto look for the most updated maximum value of column "price"?

selecting a range under a condition. I'd like to write a macro to find the maximum value for a certain ID. The number of ID rows (left column) is unknown so can't say range("A1:A5"). Then have the ID and max number shifted to another column. Maybe use 'rows.count' ?

Eg.

4009 5

4009 9

4009 8

4009 4

4005 7

4005 3

4005 9

3008 10

3008 11

I have been trying to determine the maximum/minimum value and additional count from a variable range which then I can use to subtract the first data of the range; I have been able to do that for a fixed range but not a variable one.

I have Column A with random positive numbers.

I have Column B with random negative numbers.

I have Column C with random numbers.

I have Column D with random numbers.

I have Column E with random 0’s and 1’s.

I have a set of 1600 cells of numerical data on each of the columns and there will be times when the random 0’s and 1’s from Column D will have appear repeatedly before changing to the opposite number, fx, I will get 7 nr. 1s before I get a 0 (zero).

I have been able to obtain the values in 2 cells within a fixed range:

If the last 8 cells in Column D have been “1” then I do:

F1=MAX(A1:A8)

G1=INDEX(C1:C8;MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307;C1:C8)) ---(Which provides the first number of the range in Column C after Column D has changed from 0 in D9 to 1 in D8)

H1=(F1-G1)

If the next 3 cells in Column D have been “0” then I do:

F9=MIN(B9:B11)

G9=INDEX(C9:C11;MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307;C9:C11)) ---(Which provides the first number of this range after Column D has changed from 1 in D12 to 0 in D11)

H9=(G1-F1)

Additional to this, the COUNT has also been challenging since I want to obtain in Column I, the COUNT of repeated 1’s from each range of 1’s in Column D; and also in Column J the same but for 0’s.

Fx:I18 (size of the range of 1’s originated from D1:D8)

J93 (size of the range of 0’s which consist to be the next range before 1’s were originated)

I12X (size of the range of 1’s which consist to be the next range before changed to 0’s)

However, that only works for a fixed range and continuous updates are made.

I have this table as my simple little database and I have to extract some info from it and keep track of dates and deadlines...

A

B

C

D

E

F

G

H

[Code]...

I have to get the following data, I need to lookup the last visit date out of all dates associated with a specific name in column "A".

This requires that I test an unsorted table for a value in column "A", i.e. "test2". Then determine which record has the latest date.

In other words, If I test for the value "test2" in column "A", I find I have 2 records, with dates ranged across "D4:F4 and D7:F7".

I need to return the latest date found in those ranges...

The purpose here is to write a function that will find a range of dates associated with a name in an unsorted table, from that range find the latest date, then add 90 days to that date and display the results....

I have been trying to employ a form of, =VLOOKUP(E3,$B$3:$D$11,MATCH($F$1,$B$1:$D$1,0),FALSE) and =INDEX(Table_Array,MATCH(Lookup_Value,Lookup_Array,0),Col_Index_Num) combined with "IF" functions, but to be totally honest I am COMPLETELY lost here....

Very simple problem. I need the second highest value in an array. Max gives me highest. Min gives me lowest. I need a kind of a MAX2 function.

I have to sets of data, each in a sheet with the first column as identical for both sheets. Sheet2 contains two series of 6 rows, each for a specific first column (""B Code").

Now I want to find the values of "TCT-C" column in sheet1 (for each range of 6 rows that the "B Code" is match) which corresponds to the row number that "TCT" in sheet2 is maximum (again for 6 rows). The point is, I need to shift to another series of 6 rows in sheet2 once the "B Code" does not match.

I have a row of data with the cells I want to find a MAX for are separated from each other:

a1=300 d1=500 g1=800 j1=10,000

I want to find the MAX value for a1,d1,g1,j1, but exclude any value over 1000. So instead of =MAX(a1,d1,g1,j1) returning 10,000, =???(???) will return the next highest max of 800.

May 15

Jun 2

Jul 5

First I want to look up the max value in this column. This is easy =max(b1:b8)

Then I want to know the minimum value that occurs after the maximum value. Thus the answer would be 2.

Problem:

Range A2:C10 contains the login and logout times of various ID's.

Each ID could log in and out a number of times a day.

How could we find the first time a specific ID logged in and the last time that same ID logged out?

Solution:

For each of the ID's in range A2:A10, enter two Array Formulas.

To find the first login time (Column B) enter the following formula:

{=1/MAX((A14=$A$2:$A$10)*($B$2:$B$10

To find the last logout time (Column C) enter the following formula:

{=MAX(($A$2:$A$10=A14)*($C$2:$C$10))}

ID______Login Time______Logout Time

1 ______02:40___________03:10

2 ______00:15___________03:20

1 ______06:20___________09:30

3 ______09:14___________11:05

4 ______11:00___________19:30

2 ______04:05___________06:55

3 ______12:08___________17:17

1 ______10:00___________16:20

2 ______08:12___________12:33

ID______First Login Time______Last Logout Time

1 ______2:40__________________16:20

2 ______0:15__________________12:33

3 ______9:14__________________17:17

4 ______11:00_________________19:30

I am writing a formula for finding a maximum out of three average values. The cells that will be populated with data are A1 to A5; B1 to B5; C1 to C5. The final cell where I want to write the formula needs to show the maximum of the three averages (average of data in each row).

The difficulty is that sometimes only the A and B rows are populated (and sometime only A row is populated) and if B and/or C are blank, the formula fails and shows "#DIV/0!".

How can I write so that if C is blank, then evaluate only A and B data. And If both B and C are blank, then just display the average of row A.

This should be simple to do but I can't figure it out. I have a database that lists operating room numbers in one column and the length of the surgeries performed in those rooms in another column.

I need a formula that will give me the longest OR time for a given room. For example the room numbers are in column A and the OR times are in Column B. I've tried something like

Im trying to figure out how to show the highest occurrence of text in 10 cells which are not next to each other. Some of the cells will also be blank And the other thing is if there is a draw e.g. 5 2Z and 5 1Z I'd like it to show that, either with a word e.g. "DRAW" or anything really other than just putting whichever of the 2 "notes" in it feels like

Attached is a spreadsheet (all other data deleted) that shows what I am wanting to do I have typed the results I am after directly in to the cells in columns BE & BF BE will need some kind of countif, but when I try that is says I have too many arguments! I have to leave the columns in between blank in this case as they have other info in them, which is really annoying as if those 10 cells were contiguous then the formula

i have the volume of a reservoir in column A for lets say, 2 years, with monthly data (so 24 numbers in my list)

I also have some variables that feed into this list such as rainfall (fixed), and population (i.e water use, which i can manually change)

if i increase the population too much, the volume of the reservoir will at certain times of the year, fall into negative digits.

what i'm looking for, is a cell which works out the maximum value (in whole numbers) for my population, without any of the numbers in the reservoir volume list falling below zero.

i have product group,product name and the statistics. I'll use an example of students with score. I have these set of data:

A B C D

1 Student Name Score Sum

2 Student1 Anna 48 80=Sumif(A:A,A2,C:C)

3 Student1 Anna 32 80

4 Student2 Tom 30 80

5 Student2 Tom 30 80

6 Student2 Tom 20 80

7 Student3 June 55 60

8 Student3 June 1 60

9 Student3 June 4 60

Now we have 2 students with tied highest scores with 80 Scores. Naturally i want the rank to be as follow: Top1 Anna since she has the highest score "48", and Top2 Tom, and Top3 June.

The problem is, the score data can vary and Top3 can probably have the highest score and he still didnt make the highest score collectively. And there will also going to be other situations as well because im working on a very large data set, and not these 3 students.

the max score is tied, and since im making another column with sum scores, the data is going to be redundant, and hopefully theres a formula to ignore this.

i am working on model where customer is billed based on usage of the equipment. Usage is measured in cycles per day. Assuming there are 30 Days a month. i am trying to build a spreadsheet where if i increase or decrease the monthly usage it automatically update the sheet. Remember there is limit on maximum number of times an equipment can be used.

Like for Example

Maximum life of one equipment. 3000 Cycles

Daily usage : From 1 cycle per day to 10 cycles.

Monthly usage = 30 Days * (daily usage)

Now the problem is each month new equipment is leased. so i have to keep track of each month's equipment how much it has been used and how much left. I have attached the example spreadsheet.

From A1:A500, I have data with different numerical values. I want to be able to use a corresponding column and rows (example: B1:B500) where I can enter formula where maximum values where be reported. This I would like to change with a simple change of a single cell value (example: C1). So, If C1 has a value of 10, it will be used from every b cell to create a maximum value that would use a range going back only 10 cells for A.

How to lookup for greater than a given particular value in a list of data? Suppose the value to find is in cell C17 & the column to be looked for is F, in the attached sheet. Now the data range is from F8:L27. If the value in C17 is not present in Column L, then the value greater than the specifed value should be searched in Column L. I have tried using VLOOKUP, but cannot find for a range of values.

I was hoping that my formula would give me the count number based on the Maximum time (latest time) and the Name field...My result is a 0 instead of 62 (the correct answer).

=SUM((Download!$H$2:$H$10=A4)*(Download!$D$2:$D$10=MAX(IF(Download!$H$2:$H$10=$A4,Download!$D$2:$D$1 0)))*Download!$I$2:$I$10)

Would a Index/Match/MAX function be more efficient?

Say you define a public range variable called Inputworksheet and you set it to refer to the worksheet called Inputworksheet. You have a separate string variable with the value Inputworksheet. How do you get this string variable value to call/control the range variable Inputworksheet?

I am getting an excel worksheet value from a lookup function that corresponds to the name of a VBA range variable. Once I have this worksheet value, I would like to use the range variable that has the same name as the worksheet value.

I have used max and min function to display minimum and maximum time value; however, it is not displaying the correct time value from the list. I think there is a better formula to achieve this. From the sample data displayed below, minimum time value should be 11:30PM and maximum time value should be 6:30AM

See sample data below:

4/1/2013 11:45 PM

4/1/2013 11:30 PM

4/2/2013 6:30 AM

4/2/2013 6:15 AM

4/2/2013 6:00 AM

4/2/2013 5:45 AM

I hope the title makes sense. I have a spreadsheet that I'm trying to use to calculate volumes of liquid. For each liquid there is a minimum and maximum amount that can be included in a vial, and a checkbox to indicate if it should be included or not. What I'm having trouble with is some logic (other than a million if= statements) to determine the amount of each needed.

If only a few are selected, using the max value for each is fine as it is below the volume of the vial, so I want to use the max. But if enough are selected, the max for each would exceed the volume of the vial, and I want to pick a percentage of each component's range until we get a volume that will fit in the vial (ie, it figures out that 84% of the max for each will fit, but knows never to drop below the min).
