Figure 3: Maximum Value obtained and All Errors Ignored

Explanation

The AGGREGATE function can ignore errors optionally when we are calculating the maximum value in a set of data. In the formula, the number 4 specifies average and the 6 serves as an option to ignore errors.

Note

  • MAXIFS is an alternative to Max Value Ignore All Errors
  • If the data set value is positive, with the formula below, we can get the maximum  number and ignore all errors:

=MAXIFS(values,values,">=0")

In this formula, the “greater” or “equal to zero” expression removes error values and provides the maximum numerical value.
