I've got several rows and columns of numbers. For each row I want to highlight the record that is the highest number or tied for the highest number in that row. I know how to do this for one row, but how can I easily apply this across multiple rows?

Apply this rule to the entire range you want to look in:


Where A1 is the top-left cell of the range and Row 1 is the first row.

I added a little bit to my question which might invalidate your answer, sorry. – DForck42 Jan 2 '12 at 21:28
Try it. It works for me. – Excellll Jan 2 '12 at 21:54
If you have a header, then of course, you would use MAX(2:2). – Alex Nov 5 '12 at 14:49
