To lookup information related to the the maximum value in a range, you can use a formula that comines the MAX, INDEX, and MATCH functions.

In the example shown, the formula in I8 is:


Which returns the number 4004, representing the square footage (Sq. Ft.) of the most expensive property in the list.

How this formula works

The MAX function first extracts the maximum value from the range C3:C11.

In this case, that value is 820000.

This number is then supplied to the MATCH function as the lookup value. The lookup_array is the same range C3:C11, and the match_type is set to “exact” with 0.

Based on this information, the MATCH function locates and returns the relative position of the max value in the range, which is 9 in this case.

The number 9 is supplied to INDEX as “row number” along with the range F3:F11, supplied as the lookup array. INDEX then returns the value in the 9th position in F3:F11 which is 4004.

Note: in case of duplicates (i.e. two or more max values that are the same) this formula will return info for the first match, the default behavior of the MATCH function.
