I asked for assitance yesterday on a project I was working on and
mikerickson gave me a CSE formula to accomplish what needed to be fixed. That got me interested in what a CSE formula is as well as what else can it bring to the table. The formula he gave me yesterday was a maxif =MAX(IF(ISNUMBER(C1:C8)C1:C8)) and I'm interested my when going control-shift-enter the formula works but without the {} it gives an error.

Thanks in advance for the information.

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

As mikerickson probably stated, the formula is an Array Formula.
An Array Formula must be entered with Ctrl+Shift+Enter (CSE) not just Enter.

1. You can search internet, Microsoft, and this site for information on Array Formulas and many examples.

2. You can step through the logic with Tools | Formula Auditing | Evaluate

N.B. the formula was probably =MAX(IF(ISNUMBER(C3:C12),C3:C12))
