This Custom Function will extract the maximum number between any two specified numbers. If used on large ranges of data, it will slow down Excel's calculation.

The Code

```Function GetMaxBetween(rCells As Range, MinNum, MaxNum)

Dim rRange As Range

Dim vMax

Dim aryNums()

Dim i As Integer

ReDim aryNums(rCells.Count)

For Each rRange In rCells

vMax = rRange

Select Case vMax

Case MinNum + 0.01 To MaxNum - 0.01

aryNums(i) = vMax

i = i + 1

Case Else

GetMaxBetween = 0

End Select

Next rRange

GetMaxBetween = WorksheetFunction.Max(aryNums)

End Function```

To use this UDF push Alt+F11 and go Insert>Module and paste in the code. Push Alt+Q and save. The Function will appear under "User Defined" in the Paste Function dialog box (Shift+F3). Use the Function in any cell as shown below.

=GetMaxBetween(A1:A100,9,10)
This would return the highest number in the range A1:A100 that is less than 10, but greater than 9. Only accurate up to 0.01
