# FINDING MAX VALUES IN SELECTED ROW

#### tdieren

##### New Member
I'M LOOKING FOR A WAY TO HIGHLIGHT,BOLD, OR FORMAT A VALUE THAT IS THE LARGEST OF A SELECTED GROUP OF CELLS.

EXAMPLE: I HAVE VALUES ENTERED IN ROW 19 COLLUMNS C THRU N.
I WANT TO MAKE THE LARGEST NUMBER BOLD.

I HAVE TRIED USING CONDITIONAL FORMATIING - ENTERING =A2=MAX(2:2)

WHAT IS A2 REFFERING TO? CELL A2? HOW ABOUT (2:2) BOLD?

### Excel Facts

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

The formula that you need to use should be:

=C19=MAX(\$C\$19:\$N\$19)
