like this it should work:
=MAX(A1:A6)

see also attached sample

from visual aspect it could be a solution also to use Conditional formating so you will have the highest value highlighted

Something like the following should work:

=CELL("address",INDEX(A2:A15,MATCH(MAX(A2:A15),A2:A15,0)))

Try:

=ADDRESS(MATCH(MAX(A:A),A:A,0),1,4)

where you are looking in column A

then use
=ADDRESS(MATCH(MAX(A:A);A:A;0);1;4)
where 1 represents column number - for C change to 3
