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.

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? (preferably using a formula as I'm no good at VBA!)

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?

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.

the problem i have is that if i have 14 in cell k6 and 1=10 in d6 the answer i get is 1.40 what i need the formular to do is always round it up to the highest number
ie 2 not 1.4

example 1=10 20 answer 2
1=10 25 answer 3
1=4 11 answer 3

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.

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).

Indirect Address/match: Pull The Highest Number
I am trying to do season stats for my roller derby league. I have a great spreadsheet going but the one thing I want to do, I can't seem to do. I am attaching a "test" file. very simple and small but shows what I need to do.

I have different sections and I am trying to pull the highest number out of that section. For this example, it is under the green Jams Skated: Jams at Jammer. 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. My problem occurs when I try to move these same formulas to another sheet. in this case, sheet 2. It pulls all kinds of strange things.

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.

cells contain the following data:

cell 3: x xxxx 28

were x represents text

I need to loop through each cell and extract each of the numbers and list them in a separate range. If applied to the above range of cells the function would show the below in the ouput range. Each number in its own cell.

Extract Number From Alphanumeric String ..
I would like to parse a part number.


if there is a "-#-" in the string, that is the value I want. If the "-#-" is not present, I would like to take the first number. Currently, as written in your first example, I am getting the first number - excellent and thank you!

In the sku, the first digit reprepresents capacity. If a second number is present after the capacity portion of the sku (i.e. "-#-"), that means that they want to order it filled with less than capacity. For instance, a carton of eggs and they want 6 eggs instead of the max capacity of 12. (i.e. egg12-6-z2z). Numbers after the second octet (i.e. z2z) do not matter.

It would be a number only in the second octet. If there are characters with it, the equation should disregard it.

Here are the scenarios, and what the formula should accomplish

1) egg12 --> currently returns 12
2) egg12-6 --> would return 6
3) egg12-6-g2c --> would return 6
4) egg12-g2c --> would return 12

Compare Highest Value With Cell Above & Calculate
I have a set of values in the 2nd column (Col B). I have shown in Column C (I've added some notes to the right).

mon........7..........(first value, so nothing here), or ERR.......................... 8 IS the highest value in B, so no math to do yet, or ERR.......................... 10 is greater than 8…the new highest value in Col B
thu.........8...........(20.00)............................. The value, 8, is 20% less than the Highest value so far in Col B
fri..........6..........(40.00)............................. The value, 6, is 40% less than the Highest value so far in Col B.....

Namely, any value in Col B that is LESS than the highest, greatest, largest value that has preceeded it in chronological order will reflect by what % it is lower. (Eg, 8 is 20% less than 10). When a NEW higher value appears in Col B, there would be no answer in C (or simply "ERROR", or n.a.), and this new, largest value would be what subsequent values in Col B are compared to.
