How can I nest more than seven functions in MS Excel?

I need to know how to nest more than seven functions in MS Excel. I am trying
to do a spreadsheet with highest and lowest dollar figures for the 12 months
of the year but it only lets me nest up to 7 months. For example, I'm trying
to complete the formula:
=IF(A7MAX(B7:L7),"January",IF(B7MAX(A7:L7),"Febr uary",IF(C7MAX(A7:L7),"March",IF(D7MAX(A7:L7),"A pril",IF(E7MAX(A7:L7),"May",IF(F7MAX(A7:L7),"Jun e",IF(G7MAX(A7:L7),"July"))))))&IF(H7MAX(A7:L7), "August")).
I need to get the rest of the months in so I can have the spreadsheet set up
to automatically display the months that have the highest and lowest amounts.
Can someone help?

Hi!

Just taking a guess that the months are listed in A6:L6?

=INDEX(A6:L6,MATCH(MAX(A7:L7),A7:L7,0))

hi,
Here as the conditions are mutually exclusive,I think you may try this.
=If(A7Max(B7:L7),"January","")&if(B7Max(A7:L7)," February","")&.....
This is done by splitting the conditions with if functions and cmbining them
with "&" ,so that more than 7 functions can be nested.

Thanking you,
K.S.Warrier
