# Get information corresponding to max value in Excel

This tutorial shows how to Get information corresponding to max value in Excel using the example below;

## Formula

=INDEX(range1,MATCH(MAX(range2),range2,0)

## Explanation

To lookup information related to the maximum value in a range, you can use a formula that combines the MAX, INDEX, and MATCH functions. In the example shown, the formula in I8 is:

=INDEX(F3:F11,MATCH(MAX(C3:C11),C3:C11,0))

Which returns the number 3920, representing the square footage (Sq. Ft.) of the most expensive property in the list.

### How this formula works

The MAX function first extracts the maximum value from the range C3:C11.

In this case, that value is 849900.

This number is then supplied to the MATCH function as the lookup value. The lookup_array is the same range C3:C11, and the match_type is set to “exact” with 0.

Based on this information, the MATCH function locates and returns the relative position of the max value in the range, which is 4 in this case.

The number 4 is supplied to INDEX as “row number” along with the range F3:F11, supplied as the lookup array. INDEX then returns the value in the 4th position in F3:F11m which is 3924.

Note: in case of duplicates (i.e. two or more max values that are the same) this formula will return info for the first match, the default behavior of the MATCH function.
