I have a table with a list of manufacturers (Manufacturer 1, Manufacturer 2, Manufacturer 3). Then for each manufacturer listed in that table there is a corresponding table that list all the items that manufacturer offers. Those tables have multiple columns for different criteria but they all have a column named position. All those tables are named consistently with something at the beginning of the name, the manufacturer's name and the column name being position.
So the table and column name is something like this:
I want a formula that does what this formula does:
I want to return the highest number in the position column but I want it to look at the table of manufacturers to populate the names of the tables. Each manufacturer table has about 30-50 manufacturers listed and will keep growing so I don't want to keep coming back to this formula to update it when something gets added.
Edit: Sample I added a sample picture. I want to replace the formula in D1763 with one that does the same thing but looks at the Manufactures table to populate the array of table names, all just looking at the position column to return the max number. So then if I add a Manufacture 4 to the Manufactures table and a corresponding table consistently named like the others with a column named position (Metal_Supplier_Manufacturer_4[Position]), my formula would adjust and add the new table to the array.
I require a solution using only worksheet formulas.
