I would like to extract the 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc values of a sheet using the LARGE FUNCTION from different columns.

So I want excel to examine columns (H4-H57) + (M4-M47) + (R4-R47) + (W4-W47) and give me the highest value. In another cell I would like the 2nd highest value. In the next I would like the 3rd highest. I tried using the LARGE FUNCTION but it I came with an error. Does anyone know how to approach this using the LARGE FUNCTION? Thanks.

Hi & welcome to MrExcel.
How about
=AGGREGATE(14,6,H4:W47/(MOD(COLUMN(H4:W4),5)=3),1)

Another option would be to use named range.
Under Formulas select Define Names.
-Enter a Range Name (I just used TestR in this example)
-Under refers to: select the columns. Select column H4:H47 then holding down the CTRL key select M4:M47 ... etc.

Then just use the LARGE function referring to the TestR (or the name you used).
