Hello statalisters

I have a datasheet containing the following information (example)

A	B	C	D	E	F
1	2	3	4	5	6
2	8	5	4	9	6	
3	5	7	8	6	1
7	4	5	6	8	1
2	4	6	4	1	6

I need a command that will tell me what the highest number in column E is
(in this example 9) and also return the value in column B for the same row
(i.e. in this example 8).

Thanks for your help,

Christopher D Fergusson
