How to Find the Highest Value in Google Sheets

To find the highest value in a range of cells in Google Sheets, you can use the MAX function. Here's how you can do it:

1. Select a Cell 

Click on an empty cell where you want the result of the highest value to appear. Say B1.

2. Enter the MAX Function 

Type =MAX into the selected cell.

3. Specify the Range

Specify the range of cells you want to find the highest value in. For example, if you want to find the highest value in cells A1 through A15, you would type =MAX(A1:A15).

4. Press Enter

The cell where you entered the function will now display the highest value from the specified range.

Additionally, if you want to find the highest value across multiple ranges or include non-adjacent cells, you can separate the ranges or cells with commas inside the function. For example, =MAX(A1:A10, C1:C10) would return the highest value from both ranges A1 through A10 and C1 through C10.
