## Examples

`MAX(Products[Price])` : The highest of all values in the Price column of the Products table. Equivalent to `MAX(SELECT(Products[Price], TRUE))`. See also SELECT().

`MAX([Discounts])`: The highest of the items in the Discounts column value, where Discounts is of type List.

`MAX(LIST(1, 2, 3))` returns Number: 3

### Highest from Select Values

Highest discount given to non-employees within the past month:

``MAX(  SELECT(    Sales[Discount Amt],    AND(      NOT([Customer].[Is Employee?]),      ([Sale Date] > (        EOMONTH(TODAY(), -2) + DAY(TODAY())      ))    )  ))``
1. `SELECT(Sales[Discount Amt], ...)` returns a list of values from the Discount Amt column from rows of the Sales table.
2. `AND(..., ...)` limits the values returned to only those from rows that match all of the given conditions.
3. `NOT([Customer].[Is Employee?])` excludes those rows with a Customer column value that refers to a customer record that indicates the customer is also an employee.
4. `[Sale Date] > ...` includes only those rows with a Sale Date column value later than the computed date.
5. `EOMONTH(TODAY(), -2) + DAY(TODAY())` computes the date for one month ago today.
6. `MAX(...)` returns the highest value in the select list of Discount Amt values.

### Common Problems

`MAX(1, 2, 3)` : the arguments are not in list form. To fix, wrap them in LIST() to construct a list: `MAX(LIST(1, 2, 3))`.

MAX( some-list )

## Arguments

• some-list (list of any numeric type)

AppSheet must be given enough context to determine what type of values some-list contains, that its contents are or will be numeric. To that end, some-list must be one of the following: a column value of type List that contains numeric values; a column list (e.g., Products[Price]) for a column of a numeric type; or a constructed list (e.g., with LIST()) of a numeric type.

## Return Value

The highest value in some-list.
