Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

Hi, welcome to the board!

Is this formula or VBA? Can you describe to us what it is you are trying to do, and what you have to work with?

I am working with formulas. I want to subtract the value of a cell who's location is Column: E Row: ROW(MAX(D2:D100))

review the excel help file entries for index(), match(), indirect() and offest(). post back if you can't get it sorted.

Thank you, but I found another problem. I want the output on MAX($D$2:$D$100) to be the cell that the maximum value is in. How do I do this? Thank you in advance!

=LOOKUP(2,1/(D2:D100=MAX(D2:D100)),E2:E100)

Note: if there is a tie for MAX(D2:D100) the above formula will give the value in column E corresponding to the last match in D

Yeah, I was probably making it too complex above, couldn't you simply use VLOOKUP?

=VLOOKUP(MAX(D2:D100),D2:E100,2,0)
