Hi there
using vlookup is there a way to have the highest value returned if there is more than one value for a lookup, or will only the first match ever be returned

Hope the question makes sense

Thanks

How to fill five years of quarters?
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.

Not using Vlookup - but you could do it with something like:

={MAX(IF(A1:A8="John",B1:B8))} which is an array formula ( enter with ctrl shift enter)
