How do I find the second highest value.
I have a set of numbers where I need to find the highest value and the next highest value. I can use MAX to find the highest, but how do I find the next one? You could set up a column next to your figures and use =rank. If you do not have duplicate values, "Large" formula will be useful. Try it like; =Large(A:A,2) The number at the end of it represents position of highest number you desire, so for third-highest you can put formula as =Large(A:A,3). -- Regards, Pritesh "MimiS" wrote: > You could set up a column next to your figures and use =r...

How can I split a cell in Excel?
I am setting up a document in Excel and need to split a cell into two additional cells, but they need to match with a previous row...I know you can do it in Word, can this be done in Excel No. You can't split cells unless they were merged.
