# The formula for Ms. Excel MAX, MAXA, MIN, MINA along with examples

Excel MAX and MIN formulas are functions (functions) that are used to calculate the maximum data value (MAX) and the minimum data value (MIN). In addition to the MAX and MIN functions, there are MAXA and MINA formulas. The suffix A stands for argument. Unlike MAX and MIN which only calculate numeric data, the Excel MAXA and MINA formulas calculate the maximum and minimum values for both numeric and non-numeric data. Non-numeric data in the form of text (0) and boolean, namely TRUE (1) FALSE (0). Boolean data types are generally generated by logical operations.
