    I have a list of numbers.

    This list is not sorted and I donít want to sort it.

    I want to use the second highest in a formula or calculation (2nd*B2*G14 or even another calculation or formula). How do I do that?

    Would it incorporate the RANK formula?

    Use the Large Function to retrieve the 2nd Largest Number

    =Large(Your Range,2)*B2*G14 etc

    I'd suggest "Large", myself.

    I'm surprised no one has suggested it.
