if you want to find the highest number is a list use the MAX function...

Highlight the cell where you want the answer to go, type an equal (=) sign, this will put you into formula edit mode...

type this formula...=max(the range)
for example if I wanted to find the highest number in a range of cells (range being a1 to g50)I would type in the cell...

=max(A1:G50)

To find the smallest number just change max to min...

ex:  =min(A1:G50)

Hope this helps..let me know if you have any questions
