I have a variable with values ranging from -1.58e-6 to 946515 (annual
scores on a particular matrix derived measure).  I would like to
standardize these values on [0,1] so that the observation with the
highest value is given the value 1.  Any thoughts on an efficient way to
do this?  Thanks to all in advance.

Tom
