    Problem compiling code that identifies local maxima in a data series

    Hi,

    Would anyone have an idea how to deal with this problem? It's a while since I last used VBA and what I am trying to do is essentially identifying local maxima of certain data points. That is:

    1. I have a series of data in a Range (a column) in order. I would like to identify local maxima which means, if the value in current cell is greater than the value in the previous cell and the value in the cell after it, I want this value to be placed just in the same row but in the column next to it.
    Otherwise, I want to leave the cell next to it empty and go to the next one.

    I wrote a code but it fails to compile due to a "Type mismatch" problem and I can't figure out what it is.. :/

    Thanks for all help!

    Hi,

    Why do you need a macro. A normal formula will do. i.e. with your list of data starting in A1, in B2 enter

    and copy down.

    I actually need the macro since this is part of a larger code that is supposed to interpolate values (later on) between empty cells...

    Hi,

    In that case just get the macro to populate B2:B... with the formula I gave you. i.e. something like

    where Sheet1 is the sheet VB codename not the tab name
