ve3ofa meant =min and =max so for example if the data is in column A starting in A1

=MIN(A1:A12)
=MAX(A1:A12)

The question was asking about VBA, so this illustrates a couple of ways of doing it with VBA:
Public Sub MaxInCol()

    Dim dMaxVal As Double
    
    
    ' simple version if you just want the whole column
    dMaxVal = Application.WorksheetFunction.Max(Range("B:B"))


    ' more complicated to limit to certain data
    Dim rngDataStart As Range
    Dim rngDataEnd As Range
    
    Set rngDataStart = Range("B2")
    ' find  the last cell with data in col B
    Set rngDataEnd = Cells(ActiveSheet.Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp)

    dMaxVal = Application.WorksheetFunction.Max(Range(rngDataStart, rngDataEnd))
    
    Stop

End Sub

Open in new window

Obviously for min just use Application.WorksheetFunction.Min
