    Summary

    This function returns the maximum value, the greatest value, of all the values in the arguments.

    Syntax

    MAX(value1,value2,...)

    MAX(array)

    MAX(array1,array2,...)

    Arguments

    Each argument can be a double-precision floating point value, an integer value, or an array of these. Up to 255 arguments may be included. You can use a single array (cell range) instead of a list of values. You can use multiple arrays (cell ranges) as well.

    Remarks

    If an array or reference argument contains text, logical values, or empty cells, the function ignores those values; however, the function includes in calculations cells with the value zero.

    This function differs from MAXA, which allows text and logical values as well as numeric values.

    Data Types

    Accepts numeric data for all arguments. Returns numeric data.

    Examples

    MAX(A1,B2,C3,D4,E5)

    MAX(A1:A9)

    MAX(R1C2:R1C15,R2C2:R2C15)

    MAX(2,15,12,3,7,19,4) gives the result 19
