    Angry calculating the total from a running totalizer that resets

    a computer is entering data from a totalizer into an excel spreadsheet like below: (the entries begin at the botom)
    notice the totalizer reset and started counting again.
    (the actual total gallons for the day would be: 572.229 +24.317)
    how do I create a formula to see only the highest number in each runtime for calculation (sum)

    total gallons
    24.317
    24.317
    24.317
    15.303
    0.580
    572.229
    554.862
    126.832
    113.046
    95.847
    81.529
    65.807
    49.757
    33.871
    20.030
    1.775
    0.000
    0.000

    Angry totalizing a "resetting" totalizer?!?! yeah...

    Hello superchill435,

    I believe the below formula will work

    =LARGE(A1:A18,1)

    Where you would replace A1:A18 with the range in which your data is and then 1 represents the 1st largest number.

    Thanks,

    RVASQUEZ

    hey RVASQUEZ,
    appreciate the help.
    this returns the largest number, but I need the formula to add "all the largest numbers" if the totalizer resets and starts a second, third, fourth, etc. counting run.
    any ideas??
