Entering arrays into functions.

I've been trying to use =large(), which will accept an array as its first argument. I can get this to work with a contiguous array, but I can't figure out how to enter a set of non-contiguous cells.

It seems like it should accept this, but I don't seem to be able to input it properly.

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

Hello kschmittel, welcome to MrExcel,

Which cells do you want to include exactly, is there a pattern like every 3rd or 4th cell, or something like that?

A set up as follows will work:

=LARGE( (A2,B6,C7), 2)
