For instance, in Excel, you have a range of data as below screenshot shown, and now you want to find the max or min value for each day in this range, how can you quickly solve that? Now I introduce the tricks to quickly and easily handle it in Excel.

In Excel, the formula =MAX(range) or =MIN(range) can help you get the max or min value in a range.

To select a blank cell below the first day column, for instance, Cell B6, and type this formula =MAX(B2:B5) into it, and press Enter key, then you will get max value of first day. Then drag the autofill handle right to fill this formula to the cells you need, now you get all max values in each day. See screenshot:

doc find maximum each day 2
doc find maximum each day 3

Note: To calculate the Min values of every day, please apply this formula =MIN(B2:B5) in Cell B6, and drag its Fill handle right to the cells as you need.

However, with above formula method, you cannot identify where is the max value in each day. Be relaxed, the Kutools for Excel’s Select Cells with Max & Min Value utility can help you find and select the max or min values in each column or each row.
