Hi,

Pls try

Dim arrVar(1 To 3)
arrVar(1) = cn1
arrVar(2) = cn2
arrVar(3) = cn3

Biggest = WorksheetFunction.Large(arrVar, 1)
Middle = WorksheetFunction.Large(arrVar, 2)
Lowest = WorksheetFunction.Large(arrVar, 3)

Don't give me any points for this but what the 'Large' function that Rgonzo1971 cleverly used is doing is sorting the values from highest to lowest so with a 4th value you could do this.

Dim arrVar(1 To 4)
arrVar(1) = cn1
arrVar(2) = cn2
arrVar(3) = cn3
arrVar(4) = cn4

Biggest = WorksheetFunction.Large(arrVar, 1)
Middle = WorksheetFunction.Large(arrVar, 2)
Lowest = WorksheetFunction.Large(arrVar, 3)
LowerThanLowest = WorksheetFunction.Large(arrVar, 4)

It would depend on the data. For integers Long would be best or otherwise Double or Currency.

If cn2 >= cn1 Or cn3 Then
You would need to use a series of If Else's but you could do this
Select Case True
    Case cn1 > cn2 And cn1 > cn3
        Msgbox "cn1 is the largest"
    Case cn2 > cn1 And cn2 > cn3
        Msgbox "cn2 is the largest"
    Case cn3 > cn2 And cn3 > cn1
        Msgbox "cn3 is the largest"
