Extract The Highest Number In A Row To Another Cell

I have a list of names in one column and in the next column I have a list of numbers. The names and numbers go together. In anohter cell I would like to extract the highest number and the name related to it. The list changes often.

I would like to be able to put a heading saying that "name" (in anohter cell) made the highest score and the name is entered into a cell automatically.

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 Number In Row Then Info 23 Lines Down
I am attempting to pull the Highest number out of a row of cells. Then grab the info 23 lines below. What I have is a spreadsheet that pulls from other spreadsheets and tracks all of my sales for the year. This is divided up into tabs for each day of the week. I am a formula to find the highest sales for Tuesdays {LARGE(Tuesday!B8:BB8,1)} then in the cell below it I need it to show the date that days sales happened on. That date is listed 23 lines lower. I have tried using {HLOOKUP((MAX(Tuesday!B8:B88)),Tuesday!B8:B88,23)}. This kinda works. It pulls from the 23rd line but only from the first column. Not the column that has the highest sales. I have searched for a solution but I must not be typing in my question correctly.

Identify Row Number Based On Value In A Cell And Use That Row Number In A Macro
I have Sheet with 40 employees who each proposes their work schedule, so I have to give each Employee access to the same sheet and want highlight and unlock only those cells that specific employee can use.

Each employee has to login from a drop-down (sourced from Sheet.Employee Master), so their unique Employee Number is in "A13" of Sheet.LOGIN

Can I identify the ROW number and then use that ROW number in a macro to highlight and unlock specific Range of Cells in Sheet.PROPOSED SCHEDULE?
---where "Sheet.LOGIN("A13") = (the value in the cell Col A:"row" of Sheet.PROPOSED SCHEDULE)

I have attached a scaled down version of the Workbook.

Following code is scaled down-- this is for Employee 02 who appears on ROW 16 of the sheet. (macro is same for each employee, just uses a different row)

Extract Number From Text Cell
I have an extract from a call logging system; one of the columns is a description of the call (this column is extracted in Text format). Within some of the descriptions is a reference number which I need to extract (sadly this number isn't kept in its own field) - is there any way to determine whether a cell has numbers in it, and if so is there a way to pull them out into a seperate column?

Send Row Number Of Changed Cell To Cell Where Row Resides In Cell
I have the following range of cells B2:Y3700. I want that when a value from 1 to 9999 is inserted in one cell of the above mentioned range, to copy the row number of that cell in the cell that is located in column Z and row is the number inserted in that cell. For example, if the number "1234" is inserted in one cell from range B2:Y3700, to enter in cell Z1234 the number of the row where is located the respective cell. At same the time is very important to me to not permit to insert the same number in B2:Y3700, so i believe that is need a macro code to check the cell from column z to see if value already exist .

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.

Find Cell Value Row Number & Use For Column Number
to update these values via a form in this sheet. I can find the correct row to be edited by entering a value from column A and B. The problem is if I want display the values of that row first and then change it. If I want to change row 10 data how can I bring back the value in ROW 3 AND THE COLUMN VALUE? The next step would be to do the actual update if I want to change ROW 10 to "Ooi" and a sales value of 200?

This is what I have done so far:

Dim myRows As Integer

With Sheets("Mrt")

'Retrieve history information for row
For myRows = 4 To 49
If comboxDay.Text = Range("A" & myRows).Value And textboxdescription.Text = Range("B" & myRows).Value Then
textboxbedrag.Text = Range("C" & myRows).Value
chkBTW_Ja.Value = Range("D" & myRows).Value
txtNota.Text = Range("S" & myRows).Value
End If
End With

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 -

Highest Number From File Names In Folder
I need a macro which checks for next available number from list of filenames in a folder. Then it returns that value to one predefined cell in a new document (here Untitled.xls). For example:

c: est

has the following files:
Untitled.xls - read only

Next available filename should be "abc-09-005" and macro returns that value to predefined cell in a new document (Untitled.xls). There should be NO saving at this point whatsoever. Macro simply picks the next value from a filelist. As you've noticed the value has some constants too. New document doesn't know the last picked value before macro is active (predefined cell should be empty at startup).

The number on the right is the highest number of jams skated while the number on the left should be the name of the skater who has this number. Okay, no problems there.

Formula To Count Highest Number Of Continuous Cells With Data In A Range And Their Sum
I have a range of 30 cells in a row. From that row there are groups of cells that have data that might be 1-7 cells populated in a row and in between these groups are blank cells in the row. I need to see what is the highest number of cells in a continuous row that contain data, what the mode is for continuous cell counts, and what is the average value for the data from the continuous cells. The average is a nice to have but not entirely necessary as most cell data will be fairly similar and I can get a close enough average just by knowing the average number of cells that contain data in a row. I have to do this calculation for about 1000 rows of individual data so its important a formula fit in one row.

Almost need a count function to count starting with each cell and then stopping at the first no no value it finds. Then it would show those counts and I could run a formula to pick the highest count and also show the mode of counts.

I will let the experts at it!, my weak mind could not think this one through. I thought something to do with MATCH for a while but no go from what I could do.

Get Row Number From Cell Value
I am using the following macro to fill out a table and then goal seek a solution based on input. The macro works in its present state, but I need it to do more.

I want D84 to be dependent on the value of another cell (G8), so that the number of rows is equal to the value of G8. In this example, G8=84, so the last row is set to D84. If G8=2079, then I would want all occurrences of D84 in this example to read D2079.

I have attempted to define a variable and then use Dvariable, but this does not work. Perhaps there is some way of saying that the column should be D and the row number should equal the value in G8? If so, how would that be integrated into the script above? If not,
