# Excel/VBA Solution

Question
Hi Tom,
I am using this line of code to determine the max value within a range of data. Is there a way to modify it so that it also provides me the row of that max value? Or is there another simple way to accomplish the same task?

rwRU = Application.max(sh1.Range("D13:D17").Value)

Thanks for the help,
Jesse

Dim r as Range
set r = sh1.Range("D13:D17")
rwRU = Application.max(r)

rwRURow = Application.Match(rwRU,r,0)
' rwRURow now has the offset into the range r.  If you want the actual
' row you would add 12 since your range starts in D13

rwRURow = rwRURow + r(1).row - 1

or you can loop through your data

Dim r as Range
set r = sh1.Range("D13:D17")
rwRU = Application.max(r)

for each cell in r
if cell.value = rwRU then
rwRURow = cell.row
exit for
end if
Next
