Hey, this works! I need to analiyse slowly and thoroughly but there's a part I can't get into my head right from the start: A1:C2=MAX(A1:C2) <- what's that equal sign doing there? what does this part mean?

Thanks Tom

On the archive I saw someone else gave another working solution but I didn't get his replies on my inbox. Why? Are you getting my replies?

When using functions like MAX on a 2d range how can I get the cell's address/reference returned instead of the result value?

e.g. if I have this table starting at A1...
1    2    3
4    5    6

How can I get this:
1    2    3
4    5    6

Instead of this:
1    2    3
4    5    6

I know I could something containing MATCH if it were just a single row or column but here I have a table spanning several rows and columns and there seems to be no equivalent of MATCH for these situations.

Thank you


The following will find the address of the Max value. If there are duplicate values it shows the last location.

=ADDRESS(MAX((A1:C2=MAX(A1:C2))*ROW(A1:C2)),MAX((A1:C2 = MAX(A1:C2))*COLUMN(A1:C2)),4)

This is an array function and you need to use Ctrl-Shift-Enter instead of Enter.

Hope this works for you,
