Hi All,

I need to code a lookup in VBA to find a cell in a worksheet containing the max value, subject to a criteria in another column.

Example (two columns of date in a worksheet):

Apples   10
Apples   20
Bananas 30

I need to return '20' being the largest value for apples.

Trivial using worksheet formulae, but I can't think how to do it in VBA!

Thanks,

Alan.
