Returns the maximum value in a range of cells, filtered by a set of criteria.

MAXIFS for BigQuery

Returns the maximum value in a filtered data column, filtered by a set of criteria applied to additional data columns.

Sample Usage

MAXIFS(table_name!price, table_name!fruits,”Apple”, table_name!inventory, “<30”)


MAXIFS(column, criteria_column1, criterion1, criteria_column2, criterion2)

  • column: The data column from which the maximum will be determined.
  • criteria_column1: The data column over which to evaluate `criterion1`.
  • criterion1: The pattern or test to apply to `criteria_column1`, such that each cell that evaluates to `TRUE` will be included in the filtered set.
  • creteria_column2: Additional data columns over which to evaluate the additional criteria. The filtered set will be the intersection of the sets produced by each criterion-column pair.
  • criterion2: The pattern or test to apply to `criteria_column2`.

Sample Usage

MAXIFS(A1:A3, B1:B3, 1, C1:C3, “A”)

MAXIFS(D4:E5, F4:G5, “>5”, F6:G7, “<10”)


MAXIFS(range, criteria_range1, criterion1, [criteria_range2, criterion2, …])

  • range - The range of cells from which the maximum will be determined.

  • criteria_range1 - The range of cells over which to evaluate criterion1.

  • criterion1 - The pattern or test to apply to criteria_range1.

  • criteria_range2, criterion2, … Optional: Additional ranges and their associated criteria. Note that filtering will result in the intersection of these.


  • MAXIFS will return 0 if none of the criterion are satisfied.
  • range and all of the criterion ranges must be the same size. If they aren't, MAXIFS will return a #VALUE error.
