    Find the nth largest value in a filtered range

    Guys,

    The Large() function does not return the correct value in a range that has been filtered. As a workaround I have to copy the filtered range into a new sheet and apply the large function to get the correct result. While this method is clunky, it works.

    Just wondering if there is any other built in formula to return the nth largest value in a filtered range without having to do the copy and paste. Or an array formula?

    Regards

    Use Subtotal - it can return the maximum value in a filtered range. Read the help files for details
    Hope that helps.

    Thanks RoyUK,

    Yes, subtotal(4, range) would return the largest value in a filtered range. However, I'd like to get say the 2nd or 3rd largest number in a column. Would there be any other formula to pull the value from the range?

    Cheers
