"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

OR you may try this Regular Formula (doesn't require Ctrl+Shift+Enter).......

In B2
=MAX(INDEX((ProducedQty!$A$2:$A$10=A2)*ProducedQty!$B$2:$B$10,))

Open in new window

and copy down.

@Professor
I think that there would be a performance issue with the condition IF(ProducedQty!A:A=MaxProducedQty!A2 because the condition is being checked for the whole column A which is not required. So it would be better to include a max possible range in the conditional statement.

Yes. That is the neat solution and good idea to have data converted into an excel table so the formula would be self expandable. +1

No formulas required, you could just use a Pivot Table and set the Data Value field to Max.

Set Data list to Table as suggested and then Pivot covers new data and new products are added to the list automatically.
