in cell b8 formula =LARGE(B4:Z4,2) gives the result 323 (but I would think that it should return 322? - right?

I suspect it is working as it should. (In any case, as you have seen, this is what it does.) The largest number in your set is 323. The second largest is also 323, and so on down to the seventh largest. You need to get to the eighth largest before you get to the first occurrence (of two) of 322, and then the tenth to twenty-fifth largest are all 320.
```
I trust this helps.
