Finding min or max value in a row inside a range of data

I have data that's organized as such:


                             Area 1 Area 2 Area 3 Area 4 etc...
Bucket 1 Type A   454     345        453    565
Bucket 1 Type B   565     454        343    234
Bucket 1 Type C   454     565        676    454
Bucket 2 Type A   565     567        343   787
Bucket 2 Type B   232     343        565    787
Bucket 2 Type C   345     345       343    565
etc...

While I know how extract a specific value with sumproduct lookup formula, how can I extract min or max value per row. In other words what would be the min or max Area value and area name for Bucket 2, Type B.

Try something like:

=MAX(IF(A2:A100="Bucket 2",IF(B2:B100="Type B",C2:F100)))

adjust ranges to suit.  Confirm the formula with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER not just ENTER.

You can also make references absolute by adding the $ signs.  You can reference the criteria from cells containing the criteria.

NBVC,
Something is not working, perhaps attaching a sample would help. Please see the worksheet:

You have Type spelled incorrectly in a few of the column B cells.  This is why no match is made.

Also, for the MAX you are incorrectly referencing A13 for the 2nd condition, you should be referencing A12
