Excel help required

  Housten 07 Jun 12

Good Afternoon, everyone.

I have a spreadsheet which is growing longer on a daily basis, with a series of varying values. What I want to do is to record the daily value and then have a cell alongside it show what the highest number has been. I have tried, and failed miserably, to do this with the 'if' function but this failed. I have been using "=IF(K12>$M$10,$M$10=K12,IF($M$10>=K12,$M$10))" in column M, starting in row 12, with the idea that the greatest value would be put in M10, and then printed alonside the cells of column K, in which I am recording the changing values. I know I should have thought of this before, but I have only just realised that this information would be handy and I am already over 200 rows long!

Any ideas/help/information/advice would be very, very gratefully received. I have been at this for two days now and this is driving me bananas, so any help will be most gratfully received.

I can only say "brilliant, really brilliant!". I entered it and then copied it down all the rows, and BANG!! I had the highest value instantly. I didn't even realise the values had gone as high as they have, another marvellous side effect.

Many, many thanks for your very speedy help.
