    max formula error

    I am using a max formula in column AC the seems to work sometimes and not for others. If you look at the sample you can see in AC6 & AC7 the max formula workes based on the #1 in both E6 & E7, but does not work in AC9 $ AC10 based on the #3 in E9 & E10.
    please help.
    thank you

    Have you attached the right workbook? I can not seem to find any references in AC9 & AC10

    perhaps you could paste colum ab as values first, as it returns errors on the attachment as we can not link to the S drive.

    Re: max formula error

    Well I do not see errors on the attached but the formula is a bit odd
    =IF(MAX(IF(E6=E7,AC7,0),AB6,IF(E6=E7,AC7,0))=AB6,AB6,0)

    the bits highlighted red are exactly the same the formula could be rewritten
    =IF(MAX(IF(E6=E7,AC7,0),AB6)=AB6,AB6,0)

    what are you wanting to achieve in words?

    Regards

    Dav
