Macro IntroThis is an Excel macro that will find the Largest and Smallest values in a Workbook. By Default, this Excel macro will loop through the entire Active Workbook. Once this Excel macro finishes a Message Box will display the Active Workbook that was searched and the Max and Min values found. It is easy to customize the Excel Find Largest and Smallest Value macro to only search through a specific range of cells for these values. This macro can stand alone or be used as a function within existing macros. With some additional updates to the VBA code you can have this Excel macro fire every time an Excel Workbook opens! No longer do you need to sort or use conditional formatting to identify the Largest and Smallest values in Excel. There is a better way with VBA so start using the Excel Find Largest and Smallest Value today!
