    Maximum Value From Noncontiguous Cells (2000)

    Is there a formula to find the maximum value from 3 noncontiguous (i. e., not connected) cells in a worksheet. For example, I want to get the maximum value from cells A1, C1, and E1.
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Use =MAX(A1,C1,E1)

    The MAX function (like SUM etc.) can take up to 30 arguments, each of which can be a constant, or a single cell, or a range of cells, or a formula.

    BTW, if B1 and D1 are empty or contain text, you can also use =MAX(A1:E1). Functions like MAX and SUM ignore empty and text cells.
