To get a maximum value based on criteria, you can use the MAX function together with the IF function in an array formula. In the example shown, the formula in cell G6 is:
{=MAX(IF(names=F6,times))}
Where names is the...

To find the maximum value on a given weekday (i.e. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc.) you can use a simple array formula based on the MAX, IF, and TEXT functions. In the example shown, the formula in cell F5 is:
=MAX(...

To get the position of the maximum value in a range (i.e. a list, table, or row), you can use the MAX function together with the MATCH function.
In the example shown, the formula in I5 is:
=MATCH(MAX(C3:C11),C3:C11,0...

To calculate the max or min change in a set of data as shown, without using a helper column, you can use an array formula. In the example, the formula in G6 is:
{=MAX(C5:C12-D5:D12)}
Note: this is an array formula...

Note: these is an experimental formula that uses a hard coded array constant, set down here for reference and comment. Casually tested only, so take care if you use or adapt.
Sometimes you encounter data that mixes...

To get the latest match in a set of data by date, you can use XLOOKUP in approximate match mode with the forth forth argument to -1. In the example shown, the formula in G5, copied down, is:
=XLOOKUP(MAX(date),(item=...

To get the maximum value from a set of numbers, use the MAX function.
In the example shown, the formula in cell I6 is:
=MAX(C6:G6)
The MAX function is fully automatic. It accepts one or more arguments, which can be...

To find the longest string (name, word, etc.) in a column, you can use an array formula based on INDEX and MATCH, together with LEN and MAX. In the example shown, the formula in F6 is:
{=INDEX(names,MATCH(MAX(LEN(...

To get "first in, last out" times from timesheet data, you can use the MAXIFS and MINIFS functions, or an array formula as described below. In the example shown, the formula in H6 is:
=MINIFS(times,names,H5,actions,...

To calculate the longest winning streak, you can use an array formula based on the frequency function.
Note: FREQUENCY must be entered as an array formula using Control + Shift + Enter

To lookup information related to the maximum value in a range, you can use a formula that combines the MAX, INDEX, and MATCH functions. In the example shown, the formula in I8 is:
=INDEX(F3:F11,MATCH(MAX(C3:C11),C3:...

To force negative numbers to zero without affecting positive numbers, you can use a formula based on the MAX function. In the example shown, the formula in D5 is:
=MAX(C5-B5,0)

To extract a word that contains specific text,you can use a formula based on several functions, including TRIM, LEFT, SUBSTITUTE, MID, MAX, and REPT. You can use this formula to extract things like email addresses, or...

To find the position (row) of the last file revision in a table, you can use a formula based on several Excel functions: MAX, IF, ISERROR, ROW, and INDEX.
In the example shown, the formula in cell H6 is:
{=MAX(IF(...

To get the larger, or greater, of two values, you can use the MAX function. In the example shown, the formula in D5 is:
=MAX(B5,C5)
How this formula works
The MAX function is fully automatic – it returns the largest...
