What do you mean by 'the maximum value' of a cell?
It sounds like you think cells have a history of their contents?
That's not the case. A cell has a value. If you then enter a different
value in the cell, it has the new value. It does not 'remember' the old
value. (Notwithstanding the ability of the UI to 'undo' editing -
that's something completely different).
So the entire notion of the 'maximum' value of a cell is meaningless.
For instance, A1 contains variable numbers, and I want to store the
maximal value of this cell in B1.
The trouble is that MAX() compares 2 different cells, whereas I want
the maximal value of one cell.
A recursive formula such as =MAX(A1;B1) would probably not work, and
returns an error 523 indeed.
Is there a way to store the maximal value of a cell using a formula,
