Lookup Next Highest Value

I have an excel work book that has distances in column A from A2:A10 like so:


I would like to compare the value inputed into cell C2 against the distances and return the exact match or next highest distance to D2 if there is no exact match.

i.e. If 1340 is put in Cell C2 I would like excel to return 1400 to cell D2 as 1400 is next highest distance from 1340.

Here is the kicker, the distances cannot be sorted and I would prefer not to use VBA but I will if i have to.

Lookup Second Highest Number
I have a table of information which is sorted in ascending order. I have created a vlookup to find the highest value as close to 1 as possible.

Say it returns the value 0.95.

i now have another cell which i need to find the second highest value from the column of data.

however i dont know how to do it. because the second vlookup function just returns the 0.95 all the time and not the second highest value..


Column A

So in the cell with the first Vlookup i get the value 0.95 returned.

I need then for the second cell to return the next highest value in this case 0.90.

Then third cell third highest

fourth cell fourth highest value etc.

Lookup Function - Looking For Next Highest Value
Im just setting up a spreadsheet for structural timber design calculations. One of the requirements for this spreadsheet is to look up a Zx value from a table. Once the Zx value is found it returns a size of timber from another column. I have managed to create the function so that it looks up the Zx value and returns the size. However, if the function cant find the exact Zx value, which will usually be the case. The next lowest Zx value is used. Is there a way i can edit this function so that it returns the next highest Zx value instead of the next lowest. At the moment this is the code i am using.

= LOOKUP(Q92, 'Zxx Table'!E5:E172,'Zxx Table'!C5:C172)

Where Q92 is the value to be looked up. E5:E172 is the column of values to be searched. C5:C172 is the column of values where the result comes from. In addition to this just to further complicate things, can it return say the next 5 highest values? If a lookup function cant be used could you tell me another way that i can achieve this.

Lookup Formula Return The Highest Value
I have a spreadsheet that is comprised of 3 columns:

Column A - a list of values
Column B - the rank of the value in the adjacent cell in column A out of all values in column A
Column C - the quartile rank (1, 2, 3 or 4) of the value in the adjacent cell in column A

I would like to create a formula that would return the highest value in column A that is ranked in the 2nd quartile.

Lowest/Highest Lookup Referring To Another Field
I am looking for formulas for cells B21 and B22 that will return the value from column A corresponding to the occurence of the highest/lowest value of Index compared to cell B:19, that is, the most recent Index data.

This seems to be an excellent candidate for LOOKUP as the data in Column A are unique and sorted.

Then, we have cells B:25 and B:28. On what "Week Ending" did the Min/Max value occurred?

Bonus Question, if Excel encounters more than 1 value that satisfies the formula, what happens?

Getting Value From Next-highest 'header' Row
I have a worksheet that contains a number of rows. [Thank you, Captain Obvious!] These rows are logically grouped to represent a series of "items", with each item having one or more rows (with a "header" row at the top). The rows for a particular item represent different types of information about that item, and therefore make use of different formulas based on the row type. Due to the relative complexity of the formulas in these rows, I am creating a series of row "templates" from which I can copy and paste every time I want to create a new item or add rows to an item. As such, I am trying to avoid direct cell references to different rows, as these would easily get messed up during cut and paste. Instead, I am trying to limit myself to various lookup functions (e.g. OFFSET, MATCH, etc...) that will work regardless of where a row is added.

In order to accomplish this I am using a "key" column to group all rows for a particular item together. Until now I have had to type in the key value for every row for a particular item. What I would like to do is to only have to type the key value in the header row, and have a formula populate the key value in all subsequent rows ... until a new header row is reached, at which point the new key value will be used. Take a look at the following example: ....

Highest Letter In A Row
I'm trying to list the latest revision of a drawing in an issue sheet spreadsheet. What I need is to be able to enter a formula that will find the highest alphanumerical value in the columns beyond. Alphabetic characters take precedence over numerical - i.e., drawing issue numbers usually follow a 00, 01, 02, 03, then switch to A, B, C, D,... order.

To try and illustrate what I mean a little better, I have the following table, with dates in DD/MM format. Sorry it's not laid out too well, my HTML isn't great:

Drawing title latest revision 01/01 02/01 03/01 04/01 05/01 06/01

I want the cells in the "latest revision" column to report the highest value. So, I want it to say this:

Drawing title latest revision 01/01 02/01 03/01 04/01 05/01 06/01

I won't have control over the numbers and letters reached (i.e., the drawing revision could get up to Z or something - or the number revision reach 15 before switching to alphabetic revisions) so I'd rather avoid having to set up a crazy IF function with "00", "01", "02", "03", "04", etc etc. But -

Look Up Highest Scores
What is the best way to look up and return the 10 best performers out of a list of say, 40. I have columns representing people's names, their school's name, their age and their total score. The following formula is to add up the 4 highest scores for each school: SUM(LARGE(($A$2:$A$499=Y2)*($C$2:$C$499),{1,2,3,4})) (entered as an array) Now I want to display the 10 best performing schools (who will be determined by calculating their 4 best scores).

Retaining Highest Value
I am starting to use formulas and I am constantly amazed at the power of Excel. I am trying to write a spreadsheet and I'm having a problem getting Excel to do what I want; I have 2 column, each cell in Column 1 will have a numeric value changed daily. I want Column 2 to retain the highest value that has been added. i.e. If I type 4 in A1,(for example), on Monday, then B2 will read 4, if I type 5 in A1 the next day, then B2 will change to 5, but if I type a value less than 5 in A1, then I still want B2 to read 5. The value will be input daily for an indefinite period and needs to be user friendly. I can't work out how to achieve this.

Formatting The Highest Number In A Row
I have a few rows in an excel sheet and I want to highlight the highest number(s) in each row.

I've been playing around with conditional formatting, and using the formula:
in the conditional formatting box and selecting a formatting type, I can automatically highlight the highest number in column C (row 23 to 55). However, this formula only seems to work when I'm selecting columns of data rather than rows. If I want to highlight the highest number in row 23, the formula I'm using is:
Which I think should highlight the highest number From C23 to M23, but it doesn't - nothing happens.

What am I doing wrong?

Highest Value In A Column Using Set Criteria
I am tying to find a way that I can get the highest value in a column of data depending on a set criteria, I have used the following =MAX(IF($C2:$C$109=$C2,IF(CJ$1=K$1,IF($D2:$D$109=$D2,K$2:K$109,0)))) and it works for the first row, I can drag it across ok, but if I drag it down it just populates the same value as the cell the formula started in even though the IF logical test has changed??

Can you please Help fix or offer alternative.

Also is it possible (say the above worked) to add to the formula so that it returns a value from another cell in the same row that it found the highest value? e.g. =MAX(IF($C2:$C$109=$C2,IF(CJ$1=K$1,IF($D2:$D$109=$D2,K$2:K$109,0)))) say this returned the value and it was found in K52 it would return me the value in B52

Index, Match For Highest Value

3) Finally, I need the latest Meter reading, regardless of type.

In my "Master" sheet, so far I've only accomplished finding the first work service date and the first meter reading listed for a piece of equipment. I don't know how to go from there.

Note: Some equipment will not have any work orders originally, and some equipment may have a service date but no meter reading because the equipment has no meter to read.

I've color-coded the columns I'm using as references in my calculations in the attachment.

Extracting 3 Highest Numbers

Dim first As Range
Set first = Range("L" & WorksheetFunction.Match(WorksheetFunction.Max(Columns("L")), Columns("L"), 0))
