I'll explain this as best I can...

On tab 2 I have a table with four column headings within each column there is a highest amount and lowest amount that can change as each week passes and more data is added.

On tab 1, for each column I have in tab 2 I want a cell that updates automatically to show me the highest and the lowest.

Any more information needed just ask.

Thanks.

Examples:

=MAX(Sheet2!A:A)
=MIN(Sheet2!A:A)

copied across.

I can't wait to get back using Excel on a daily basis, I've forgotten so much basic stuff it's unreal. Love this forum for reminding. Thanks mate.

Quick follow up question.

The four columns in tab 2 are b,c,d,e for example but column A is the ID number, so whilst I want the highest for each column returning I want another cell that also returns the ID number that matches that, can you remind me how to do that?

Thank you.

Like this?

=INDEX(Sheet2!$A:$A,MATCH(MAX(Sheet2!B:B),Sheet2!B:B,FALSE))
=INDEX(Sheet2!$A:$A,MATCH(MIN(Sheet2!B:B),Sheet2!B:B,FALSE))

=INDEX(Sheet2!$A:$A,MATCH(MAX(Sheet2!B:B),Sheet2!B:B,FALSE))
=INDEX(Sheet2!$A:$A,MATCH(MIN(Sheet2!B:B),Sheet2!B:B,FALSE))

Hmmm, don't think this works.


Does this work as a mocked up spreadsheet....

A</SPAN>B</SPAN>C</SPAN>D</SPAN>E</SPAN>F</SPAN>G</SPAN>H</SPAN>I</SPAN>
1</SPAN>Sheet 1</SPAN>Sheet 2</SPAN>
2</SPAN>
3</SPAN> ABC</SPAN>BCD</SPAN>Week</SPAN>ABC Values</SPAN>BCD Values</SPAN>
4</SPAN> Value</SPAN>Week</SPAN>Value</SPAN>Week</SPAN>1</SPAN>15000</SPAN>15</SPAN>
5</SPAN>Highest</SPAN> 2</SPAN>12000</SPAN>17</SPAN>
6</SPAN></SPAN> 3</SPAN>11000</SPAN>16</SPAN>
7</SPAN>4</SPAN>8000</SPAN>98</SPAN>
8</SPAN>5</SPAN>17000</SPAN>21</SPAN>
9</SPAN>6</SPAN>19900</SPAN>3</SPAN>
10</SPAN>7</SPAN>21000</SPAN>88</SPAN>
11</SPAN>
12</SPAN>

<TBODY>
</TBODY><COLGROUP><COL span=8><COL span=2></COLGROUP>


So B5 should read 21,000 and C5 should be "7"
So D5 should read 98 and E5 should be "4"

Assuming your data on Sheet2 is in columns A:C:

B5 =MAX(Sheet2!B:B)
C5 =INDEX(Sheet2!A:A,MATCH(B5,Sheet2!B:B,FALSE))
D5 =MAX(Sheet2!C:C)
E5 =INDEX(Sheet2!A:A,MATCH(D5,Sheet2!C:C,FALSE))
