Hello,
I am putting together an XL sheet and would like to find the MAX value in a column of numbers, then return the contents of the cell next to it. For example, out of 10 test scores (cells B1 through B10), I would like to first identify the highest score, then look in Column A for the name of the student the high score belongs to, then display the student's name in cell C1. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
