# How to Find the Top 10 Values in an Excel Column

To find the top 10 values in an Excel column, you can use the LARGE function. The LARGE function returns the nth largest value in a data set, where n is the number you specify. You can use this function to find the top 10 values in a given column. Here's how:

- Open your Excel workbook and locate the column with the values you want to find the top 10 for.
- Click on an empty cell where you want to display the first top value. This is where we'll start listing the top 10 values.
- In the selected cell, enter the following formula, replacing "A:A" with the range of your data column:

`=LARGE(A:A, 1)`

This formula will return the largest value in the specified range.

- Press Enter to apply the formula. You should see the largest value from the column displayed in the selected cell.
- Now, we'll find the remaining top values (from 2nd to 10th). Click on the cell below the one you just worked with.
- Enter the following formula, again replacing "A:A" with the range of your data column, and changing the number 2 to the rank you want to find (e.g., 3 for the third largest value, 4 for the fourth largest value, etc.):

`=LARGE(A:A, 2)`

- Press Enter to apply the formula.
- Repeat steps 5-7 for the remaining top values (3rd to 10th), updating the number in the formula accordingly.

## Example

Let's find the top 10 values in a column containing the following numbers:

```
25
48
32
12
55
22
35
62
10
45
```

- The data is in column A, from A1 to A10.
- Click on an empty cell, for example, B1.
- Enter the formula:

`=LARGE(A1:A10, 1)`

- Press Enter. The largest value (62) is displayed in B1.
- Click on the cell below (B2), and enter the following formula:

`=LARGE(A1:A10, 2)`

- Press Enter. The second largest value (55) is displayed in B2.
- Repeat these steps for the remaining top values, from 3rd to 10th. The final result should look like this:

```
62
55
48
45
35
32
25
22
12
10
```

These are the top 10 values in the given column.
