    Highlighting (Office 2000)

    Hello all,

    I have an Excel table with one set of criteria down the left hand side and another across the top. Is there a way I can get Excel to highlight (make the number bold, for instance) which number in each row or column is the highest for me?

    Thanks for your help.

    Troy, Format | Conditional Formatting makes this easy:
    In the dialog choose "Cell Value Is", "Equal" & "=MAX(B:B)", for example to highlight the maximum value in column B. Then setup the desired format. If you make the range relative asI did, then you can use the format painter to copy the format to another column. If this is confusing, see attached worksheet for an example. HTH --Sam
