x = randn(1000,1); [maxval,I] = max(x);

maxval gives the maximum value and I gives which element of the vector that maximum occurs at.

If you do

>>doc max

you will see the help for this function.

"As early as possible!!!" is not the perfect tone, when you want to encourage volunteers to help you. Are you aware that the UPPERCASE STYLE mean shouting in a forum? A much better idea would be to explain any details of the problem, e.g. what exactly a "data set" is.

Some other details steal only the time of the readers: Of course you want Matlab code, because this is a Matlab forum. The answer will be the same if you are new or experienced.
