# Determine cell with greatest value

Posted on 2012-03-30

Hello Experts,

I want my code on any worksheet_change (usedRange A1 to H20) that it determines in the Range(B1:D1) which cell has the highest numeric value.

Then
If B1 is highest then B2.value = 50
elseif C1 is highest then C2.value = 50
elseif D1 is highest then D2.value = 50
end if

This is the basis for what I need it to do - I have other steps to add after it determines the right cell.  But this will get me started and probably finished.

Thanks

Why don't you simply enter this formula in B2 and then copy it all the way to D2?

=IF(B1=MAX(\$B\$1:\$D\$1),50,"")

This way you would not need any event macro.

[B1:D1].Find(Application.Max([B1:D1])).Offset(1).Value = 50

That will return the cell in row 1 that contains the highest value.

Or maybe

[B1:D1].Find(Application.Max([B1:D1])).offset(1,0).Value = 50

Hello Experts,

I think I am a bit brain-fried, but I was going to use it as a worksheet.change, but it needs to be on worksheet.activate.

I think I need something similair to what was proprosed in the

[B1:D1].Find(Application.Max([B1:D1])).Offset(1).Value = 50

But how do I declare this to work in a worksheet.activate situation?

Thanks Experts!
