Hi,
This is the solution for your question now i am comparing the data in A1=100 and A2 = 200 and the result i write in C1 = =IF(EXACT(A1,B1),B1,MAX(A1:B1))..

=IF(EXACT(I2,S2),S2,MAX(S2:S30)) this formula is gives the Maximumnext highest number
for example
ColumnA
900
1250
1350
1721
2160
2304
2651
2730
2888
2925

Column B
