We can use the **AGGREGATE function** to calculate the **maximum numerical value** in a set of values full of **errors**. We can calculate the maximum value from the data using max value ignore all errors task through **Excel Aggregate function**. The steps below will walk through the process.

*Figure 1: Maximum Value obtained and All Errors Ignored*

**General Formula**

`=AGGREGATE(4,6,range of values)`

**Formula**

**=AGGREGATE(4,6,B4:B12)**

**Setting up the Data**

- We will set up data by inputting our
**Values**in**Column B** - The result will be returned in
**Cell C4**

* Figure 2: Setting up the Data*

**Get Maximum Value and Ignore All Errors**

- We will click on
**Cell C4** - We will insert the formula below into the cell

**=AGGREGATE(4,6,B4:B12)** - We will
**press the enter key**

*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.
