    Get highest values

    Hello

    I have a spreadsheet which records orders taken by phone. Excel should calculate the day with the most calls and the date with most orders. As you can see from my spreadsheet they are on February 26 2011 and on March 4 2011.

    There is a named range called Day. I use the formula

    to get that date. But Excel displays the first date only and ignores the second one.

    My questions are:
    a) What do I have to do in order to display both dates?
    b) What formula do I have to use both days (Samstag and Freitag), as these were the days with the most values (from the dates)
    c) The city with the most orders

    Are all these formulae similar?

    I have attached the spreadsheet to my post.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Massimo

    Hi,

    I think using pivot table(s) would be by far the easiest way for you to do this kind of analysis.

    Re: Get highest values

    my boss expects me to put the value in a cell.

    or is it possible to extract a value from a pivot table and put that value into another cell?

    Re: Get highest values

    I'd suggest to your boss that this is the easiest way to produce the result they require with the least effort required, especially as more than one day can have the most orders.

    I've put an example in the attached.
