# Formula to Display Sheet Name of Worksheet that Contains Max Value Across Multiple Sheets in Workbook

#### erino

##### New Member
I have created a workbook that is comparing my business transactions from year to year. Each year is represented by a worksheet (2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, etc.). On each worksheet, I have listed the transactions, and then broken down data for the year including number of transactions, total volume, total commission, average sales price, largest transaction, smallest transaction, average # days of a transaction, etc.

I created an "Overall" sheet for the beginning of the workbook to summarize my whole business. I have been able to figure out the formula for the yearly average, the year that had the highest and the year with the lowest of each statistic. But I for the max and the min, I would like that sheet to display which year (or sheet) those stats came from. I can't figure out a formula to display that? I have spent weeks searching the internet for this formula. PLEASE HELP!

Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

Can you provide Max and Min Formula Here?. I think you can pull sheet name from that formula .

Originally the data points were not in the same cell on each sheet because I have a different number of transactions each year (2014=15 transactions, 2020=41 transactions). But in the process of trying to figure this out, I ended up adding extra rows and hiding them to the sheets with less transactions so that my data analysis each year starts on the same row.

Formula for the Year of Max Transactions:
=MAX('2020'!B61,'2019'!B61,'2018'!B61,'2017'!B61,'2016'!B61,'2015'!B61,'2014'!B61,'2013'!B61)
Answer is 41, which comes from 2020 Sheet

Formula for the Year of Min Transactions:
=MIN('2020'!B61,'2019'!B61,'2018'!B61,'2017'!B61,'2016'!B61,'2015'!B61,'2014'!B61,'2013'!B61)
Answer is 15, which comes from 2014 Sheet

Is that what you were looking for?

Hi! There may be short and efficient Formular! but I could not figure it out.
Try this! Use Ctrl+ Shift+ Enter. this formula is static and absolute if you change some reference cell it won't work!

DANG! That works! Thank you! Can you explain it a little to me? because I am going to have to a) recreate it for like 40 more categories, and b) every year when I add another sheet (another year) I will have to modify it I guess.

Hi! thanks for the feedback.
Here is my explanation at my best.

First part
original Formula range (Answer = 41)
1Ans =MAX('2020'!B61,'2019'!B61,'2018'!B61,'2017'!B61,'2016'!B61,'2015'!B61,'2014'!B61,'2013'!B61)

Remove =Max( )
'2Ans '2020'!B61,'2019'!B61,'2018'!B61,'2017'!B61,'2016'!B61,'2015'!B61,'2014'!B61,'2013'!B61

Place Between ", " ("" Double code to use as text And , Comma for place finder)
'3Ans ",'2020'!B61,'2019'!B61,'2018'!B61,'2017'!B61,'2016'!B61,'2015'!B61,'2014'!B61,'2013'!B61"

SUBSTITUTE ' Single code with ""nothing
=SUBSTITUTE( 3Ans ,"'","")
4Ans ",2020!B61,2019!B61,2018!B61,2017!B61,2016!B61,2015!B61,2014!B61,2013!B61"

Now every sheet name is between , comma and ! (1st sheet is between first , and ! , 2nd sheet is between second , and ! So on…)
Now ,need to know which comma to start and End with !

Second Part
You have Eight sheet name See 2Ans
Use Choose to deliver your eight sheets as range and compare with Max Answer(1Ans) .
{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8} for eight sheet
5Ans CHOOSE({1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8},'2020'!B61,'2019'!B61,'2018'!B61,'2017'!B61,'2016'!B61,'2015'!B61,'2014'!B61,'2013'!B61)=MAX('2020'!B61,'2019'!B61,'2018'!B61,'2017'!B61,'2016'!B61,'2015'!B61,'2014'!B61,'2013'!B61)
Result Example" Answer is 41, which comes from 2020 Sheet
(41 , 100,200,300,400,500,600,700)= 41
(True , False,False,False,False,False,False,False)

Now Use IF and sumproduct to get location number
If ( 5Ans ,{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8})
Result example
if((True , False,False,False,False,False,False,False), {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8} )
Now True will deliver relevent no. which is 1 .and use sumproduct
Sumproduct ( 1) Now you get the answer 1 for which comma to use in first part answer
6Ans 1

Third part
Use Subtitute , and ! With @ and # ( Subtitute can use which instance no to replace)instance no will get from 6Ans
7 Ans

Use Mid to extract sheet name
=MID( 7Ans , find @ from 7 Ans , Find # from 7Ans)

1. It is much more efficient to have all the data on one sheet and the reporting on another. You can use Pivot Tables and a many Excel Formulas.

2. The post below shows a sample of two 3D approaches; the array formula must be array entered (CSE) for versions before 365. I do not know if these work with the Mac version.

@Dave Patton - Thank you! But the problem is I want to keep the years on separate sheets so I can also look at the entire year.

@alz - I have gone through and plugged in the formula everywhere. It has worked in some places, and has not worked in others. I have attached a screenshot. I highlighted the answer it is showing and then I wrote next to it what the actual answer is. And then it also does #VALUE when the answer is the same on several sheets. Any suggestions?

I will not able to suggest without looking at actual Data, ( formula)

So that, many people can give you better suggestion and write the code directly
