From: Ms-Exl-Learner on 22 Apr 2010 04:33 Assume that you would like to get the result from A column Data. Column:- This will get the Largest number from A Column =LARGE(A:A,1) Similar to =MAX(A:A) But when you would like to get the second largest number then change the 1 to 2 in the above large formula like the below =LARGE(A:A,2) Assume that you would like to get the result from 1st Row Data. Row:- =LARGE(1:1,1) =LARGE(1:1,2) Column:- This will get the Smallest number from A Column =SMALL(A:A,1) Similar to =MIN(A:A) But when you would like to get the second Smallest number then change the 1 to 2 in the above Small formula like the below =SMALL(A:A,2) Assume that you would like to get the result from 1st Row Data. Row:- =SMALL(1:1,1) =SMALL(1:1,2) -- Remember to Click Yes, if this post helps! -------------------- (Ms-Exl-Learner) -------------------- "Golf" wrote: > How do I search for the second (or third and so on) largest value in the > array either in column or row?
