I am looking for a way to find a highest (and/or) lowest value in a list of numbers. The list keeps getting longer and after a certain point I will need the 2 highest (or lowest), then the 3 highest (or lowest). I know MIN and MAX will find the high and low, but how do I find the 2nd highest, etc?

I have a column that updates automatically by placing a value in in the next blank cell in the column. I am trying to write two formulas to identify the highest and lowest values in the preceding 10 cells of each update in the column but seem to be stuck in MIN/MAX/OFFSET hell.

I have A bunch of numbers going up to 4.0 from 0.0 how can i get it so that it takes the number and the name beside it and buts it in a colume from 1 to ..... complete ex) David 1.5 Jon 3.5 Sally 4.0 Susan 3.24 Fred 2.99

I am trying to generate a list of the 5 highest and 5 lowest numbers from a list of scores that range from 1 to 10. I have found the highest and lowest absolute values (numbers over 7.5, and less than 5, out of 10), but I would also like to generate the 5 highest and lowest relative numbers, ie. if there are no scores over 7.5, then the 5 next highest numbers. I have used if/then formulas for the absolute highest and lowest numbers, and a rank/countif formula to rank them. I have no idea how to generate a list of the "relative strengths and weaknesses".

Sheet one has dates, my prices on each of those days, and the fields h1 h2 h3 h4 (h1 is the closest higher number, h2 is the next closet higher number, etc.) and l1 l2 l3 l4 (l1 is the closest lower number, etc. etc.)

Sheet two has certain dates and prices of a competitor's prices.

What I'm trying to do is two things (see attached): 1) find the four closest higher and four closest lower prices (if available) 2) use only the prices that are on or before the date in question.

I've tried combinations like LARGE and OFFSET and so far it is not getting me anywhere.

I have imported and filtered a .csv. to specified sheet names. I have rows that have been sorted by a specific column's cell contents. i.e.

A B C C E F G H I xxx xxxx xxx xxx xxx 1 xxxx xxx xxx xxx xxxx xxx xxx xxx 1 xxxx xxx xxx xxx xxxx xxx xxx xxx 2 xxxx xxx xxx xxx xxxx xxx xxx xxx 2 xxxx xxx xxx xxx xxxx xxx xxx xxx 2 xxxx xxx xxx

I need to be able to select all the rows or ranges that contain a common value 1's and then loop back and select the next group 2's of rows until the row or column contains "".

I'd like to record the highest / lowest value in a single cell without it being written over i.e record the highest value and if there is another value lower it wont overwrite it.

I've tried using the =max or =min but whenever a newer value appears in the cell it just follows that without keeping the higher value?

Could any of you Excel bods please help me find the correct formula to enter in order to calculate the following reasonably simple sum:

3 cells with numbers, say, 1, 3 & 7.

I simply need to get my worksheet to look at all three cells and then calculate the result of adding the biggest and smallest number together. i.e. 8 in the example given.

I am trying to do is rank the value in column G from the highest positive value to the lowest and then the highest or largest negative to the lowest or smallest negative in that order. The way it is arranged/sorted in the attachment is exactly how it should be for this example. However, the ranking formula does not work? What it needs to do is show the value in cell H13 as the 6th ranking and not the 13th?

I have a cell to receive real time data during a period of time(the period depends on other cells). My problem is I want only the greatest value of the real time data. How can I manage this?

I have multiple rows, 1400 to be exact, that has a set of 6 numbers. I want to order them from lowest to highest in another column. Here is what I mean:

4 6 1 3 2 5 => 1 2 3 4 5 6

Is there an easy way to do this? I assume a macro would be easy, but to add a twist, can it be done if you don't use a macro?

I am trying to configure a formula using RANK to do the following:

- Sort scores from highest to lowest (range from 1 to 900)

There will be 64 entries total (64 man bracket) and i would like to rank them from highest score (900 is highest score) to lowest score (1 is lowest score).

This is for a bowling bracket. The names of the bowlers will be in column A. The scores will be in column B. Their RANK will be in column C.

I have a data listed from A1 to G1. What I want to do is

Check out all the numbers written in those cells, take the highest number among and write to the following cell (lets say A3) also Check out all the numbers written in those cells, take the lowest number among and write to the following cell (lets say A4)

I need a formula that will pull specified information from sheet2 (without having to sort) into sheet 1 by looking up the specified name. See attachd file.

I have a data that needs to be ranked from highest to lowest. I used the Rank function to do this.After getting the rank, i need to consolidate the data by highest to lowest rank, while simultaneously getting the values of the column on the same row.

I used the index and the match function. And i was able to do that, but the problem is there are items that have the same rank. how do i consolidate the data from highest to lowest even if with same ranks?

how can I get excel to show the highest and lowest figures in a range to display in another 2 cells. Can this be done without having to sort the data and remove all of the other rows except highest and lowest. I am using Excel 2003.

I need to do conditional formatting based on the highest percentage (value) in each row.

[1st highest value (green coloring), 2nd highest (Orange color), 3rd highest (blue coloring), if it has the letters "NT" then (Red color)]

But to break the tie, if the value of the 1st column is equal to the value of the 2nd column, 1st will be considered as the highest value. If the value of the 2nd column is equal to the value of the 3rd column will be considered 2nd largest value.

For a competition with a lot of participants I'd like to make subtotals of the score. The participant with the highest weight gets 1 point, the second highest gets 2 points, ... and so on. How do I make a formula in the points column with this exercise?

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?

I have a sheet of about 15000 rows made up of about 1300 groups( events) and 40 columns, a miniature of which is attached.

In column1 I have the event identifier,column 2 contains a score or rating for each contestant in each event.,in column 3 there is a code for each competitor,either orange or pink.There will be at least 1 orange and 1 pink in each event.

column 4 is the one I want to create by formula,the lowest pink in each event divided by the highest orange. I have titled this column the spread. I have filled column 4 manually to illustrate what I mean.

I have data in a worksheet coming from an external device that is updated via DDE. The values in the cell change every few seconds. I would like to record the highest and lowest values that these cells contain.

I want the peak values to be stored in other cells.

I need the close% column to auto sort from highest to lowest so that I can see at a glance who the top sales person is. I have conditional formatting for the top three but I would rather them auto sort by close%, can anybody help me with this. I have attached the file,

I am currently trying to display a number from a column of data, where the number is the smallest, then the second smallest (third, fourth and fifth where applicable). When using =small, I am able to display the second smallest number, but when the list contains duplicates, the second smallest figure often matches the smallest. I am having the same problem with =large. I have tried to combat this by using an IF statement, but am only able to place so many arguments into the formula before excel is unable to perform the formula. This is also proving quite lengthy :o(

Trying to arrange numerical values in order from lowest to highest in a column i have a code to do that but i need it to be able to but to a range in the column so it only sorts the values in rows 3 - 60 not all of the rows in the column
