My problem is I would like to find the top 5 and bottom 5 values from a variable sized range. I was wondering if there was an easy way.......thanks

This is an array function it covers five cells, ur five top values.It assumes ur placing the values in the range(b2:"end of worksheet").

This array function is placed on the top row of the shhet in order to avoid a circular ref.

The smallest 5 values is obtainded with the same formula just change Large for Small.
