MAX 
MAX(number1 [,number2] [..]) 
Returns the largest value in a list, table or cell range. 
number1  The first number. 
number2  (Optional) The second number. 
REMARKS 
* This function includes hidden cells. * Arguments that are just numbers are included. * Arguments that are just numbers passed as text ("3") are included. See Example 15. * Arguments that are just logical values are included. True evaluates to 1. False evaluates to 0. See Example 16. * Arguments that are just text will generate a #VALUE! error. See Example 18. * Arguments that are references to cells containing zeros are included. See Example 9. * Arguments that are references to cells containing dates are included and the date serial number is used. See Example 12. * Arguments that are references to cells containing logical values are excluded. See Example 11. * Arguments that are references to cells containing text are excluded. See Example 10. * Arguments that are references to cells containing error values will be returned. See Example 14. * Arguments that are references to empty cells are excluded. See Example 8. * Arguments that are arrays containing logical values are excluded. See Example 20. * Arguments that are arrays containing text are excluded. See Example 19. * You can have a maximum of 255 arguments. * You can use the MAXA function to include logical values and text. * You can use the MAXIFS function to return the largest value that satisfies multiple conditions. * You can use the MAXBETWEEN  User Defined Function to return the largest value that is between a range. * You can use the MAXVISIBLE  User Defined Function to exclude hidden cells. * You can use the DMAX function to return the largest value in a column that satisfies multiple conditions. * You can use the AGGREGATE function to exclude hidden cells. * You can use the LARGE function to returns the kth largest value in a list or array of numbers. * You can use the MEDIAN function to return the number in the middle of a set of numbers. * This is similar to the AVERAGE, COUNT, MIN, PRODUCT and SUM functions. * For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com * For the Google documentation refer to support.google.com 

1  What is the largest of the values (1,2,3). 2  What is the largest of the values (1,2,3,0). 3  What is the largest of the values (2,3,4,5,6). 4  What is the largest of the values in the array {2, 3, 4, 5, 6}. 5  What is the largest of the values in range "B1:B3". 6  What is the largest of the values in range "B1", "B2" and "B3". 7  What is the largest of the values in range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B4". B4 is empty so this gets excluded. 8  What is the largest of the values in range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B5". B5 is zero so this gets included. 9  What is the largest of the values in range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B6". B6 is text so this is excluded. 10  What is the largest of the values in range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B7". B7 is a logical value so this is excluded. 11  What is the largest of the values in range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B8". B8 is a logical value so this is excluded. 12  What is the largest of the values in range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B9". B9 is a date so this gets included as a date serial number. 13  What is the largest of the values in the named range that refers to the range "B1:B3". 14  What is the largest of the values in range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B10". B10 contains an error so that gets returned. 15  What is the largest of these values (2, "3"). Text values that are actually numbers are included. 16  What is the largest of these values (2, TRUE). Logical values passed as arguments are included. TRUE is replaced with 1. 17  What is the largest of these values (2, FALSE). Logical values passed as arguments are included. FALSE is replaced with 0. 18  What is the largest of these values (2, "some text"). Text values passed as arguments are excluded. 19  What is the largest of the values in the array {2, "some text"}. Text values inside arrays are excluded. 20  What is the largest of the values in the array {2, TRUE}. Logical values inside arrays are excluded.
