    Calculate highest value based on another value

    Hello,

    Would anyone be able to help please?
    I need to calculate the highest version of Internet Explorer (column C) for each unique AssetTag (column A).
    Does anybody know how to start calculating this scenario?

    For example, this list
    SBC399695 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.00.6000.16762
    SBC399695 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.00.6000.16827
    SBC399695 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.00.6000.17055
    SBC399695 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.0.6000.16850
    SBC399695 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 6 6
    SBC399695 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.0.6000.16791
    SBC399695 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.00.6000.*
    SBC399695 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 6 6.0.3790.3959
    SBC399697 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.00.6000.16762
    SBC399697 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.00.6000.16827
    SBC399697 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.00.6000.*
    SBC399697 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7
    SBC399697 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 6 6.0.3790.3959
    SBC399697 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.0.6000.16850
    SBC399697 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.0.6000.16791
    SBC399697 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.00.6000.17055
    SBC399697 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7 7.00.6001.18248
    SBC399697 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 6 6

    to extract only the following:
    SBC399695 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7
    SBC399697 MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER 7

    Attached is a sample file.

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: Calculate highest value based on another value

    If you sort also by column C in ascending order, you can use:

    =LOOKUP(2,1/($A$2:$A$34248=A2),$C$2:$C$3428)

    copied down.

    Note: this will take a minute or so to calculate.

    A faster way, would be to create a pivot table to show unique AssetTag vs. Latest version

    or you could use a formula like:

    =If(A2=A3,"",C2) copied down, after sorting again for columns A and C in ascending order... this will show a value only at last asset entry.
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
