# Conditional Count (Find The Minimum Value In The Range)

Dec 29, 2009
I am trying, without success, to create a formula that will refer to a column of data and do the following in one step:

1. Find the minimum value in the range, and then

2. From that minimum value, count back “up” the column the number of occurrences, including the minimum value, until a zero is reached. The zero should not be counted.

For example, if the values in A1:A6 are 1, 0, 2, -1, -2, 1, the minimum value is -2 and the count would return 3. (i.e. 2, -1 and -2)

I have 3 columns L, N and P

I would like to return the MIN value(column R) between the columns

except where the MIN = zero then just leave the result as blank.

If I have a range of data say all numeric and range form cells A1:A20. How would I find the minimum value except A4 where A4>0?

I know I can use the 'MIN' function and highlight all the data bar A4 (min(A1:A3,A5:A20) but i was hoping for an actual way so I could later fix the column such that first A1 is the first to be omitted A2 is the second and so on.

I'm looking for a formula to find the minimum value in a non successive range of numbers (excluding zero values).

My sheet contains four fields of numbers (#1, #2, #3 and #4) and than start over again with number #1, #2, #3 and #4 etc. This goes on for approx. 25 4-column blocks. A simple MIN-formula or SMALL-formula doesn't seem to do the trick as it takes all values into account, not just the #1 or #2 or #3 or #4 values.

Example (cells A1..A24):

999-999-999-999-110-120-130-140-111-121-131-141-112-122-132-142-0-0-0-0-113-123-133-143

The minimum value of #1 (excluding the zero's) would be 110, the minimum value of #2 would be 120, #3 would be 130 and #4 would be 140.

I have been trying to determine the maximum/minimum value and additional count from a variable range which then I can use to subtract the first data of the range; I have been able to do that for a fixed range but not a variable one.

I have Column A with random positive numbers.

I have Column B with random negative numbers.

I have Column C with random numbers.

I have Column D with random numbers.

I have Column E with random 0â€™s and 1â€™s.

I have a set of 1600 cells of numerical data on each of the columns and there will be times when the random 0â€™s and 1â€™s from Column D will have appear repeatedly before changing to the opposite number, fx, I will get 7 nr. 1s before I get a 0 (zero).

I have been able to obtain the values in 2 cells within a fixed range:

If the last 8 cells in Column D have been â€ś1â€ť then I do:

F1=MAX(A1:A8)

G1=INDEX(C1:C8;MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307;C1:C8)) ---(Which provides the first number of the range in Column C after Column D has changed from 0 in D9 to 1 in D8)

H1=(F1-G1)

If the next 3 cells in Column D have been â€ś0â€ť then I do:

F9=MIN(B9:B11)

G9=INDEX(C9:C11;MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307;C9:C11)) ---(Which provides the first number of this range after Column D has changed from 1 in D12 to 0 in D11)

H9=(G1-F1)

Additional to this, the COUNT has also been challenging since I want to obtain in Column I, the COUNT of repeated 1â€™s from each range of 1â€™s in Column D; and also in Column J the same but for 0â€™s.

Fx:I18 (size of the range of 1â€™s originated from D1:D8)

J93 (size of the range of 0â€™s which consist to be the next range before 1â€™s were originated)

I12X (size of the range of 1â€™s which consist to be the next range before changed to 0â€™s)

However, that only works for a fixed range and continuous updates are made.

Attached is a print screen. I'm struggling with using the min function in vba. I want it to find the minimum cumulative cost in week 0 out of the first three, and the copy the permutations of it (1,0 or 1, 1 , e.t.c.) to Week one column C & D of the model.

I have a range of cells (say A1:D8).

I wanna find the address (say $B$2) of the minimum value in that range.

This command does it but it only works on a column. it does not accept a range spanning more than one column.

=CELL("address",INDEX(B2:B7,MATCH(MIN(B2:B7),B2:B7,0)))

this will tell me the address of the minimum value.. but in a column... I need a range of many columns.

So I tried converting things to a Table.. but it never worked. basically the MATCH command is my problem. It only accepts single-column-ed ranges.

Hello, we have a stop light spreadsheet for status with several different projects. In each row there are conditional format status green - good, yellow - needs work, red - bad...based on data from another tab.

There is an "overall status" column that pulls the worst color that exists for a given row.

=IF(COUNTIF(F1:V1,"r")>0,"R",IF(COUNTIF(F1:V1,"y")>0,"Y",IF(COUNTIF(F1:V1,"g")>0,"G","")))

There is also a date for each row. Now we want to pull the worst color in the "overall status" column for a date range...and display that on a separate summary tab.

For 4/1/09 thru 4/15/09 - pull the worst color from the "overall status" column from that date range.

I have two columns: column C has job functions, say engineer, cook, driver,

etc; column D has salaries.

I want to analyse the salaries: what's the min/max,median, mode, average

values for each of the job functions. (e.g., if data in column C = "driver",

then corresponding salary to be included in the data to be analysed.)

the macro will track daily min/max values, and keep a count of the times these values occurred in a separate sheet in the workbook.

At first I thought simply setting up a macro to look at a predefined range of rows to find the min/max values, but some days may be missing data; therefore, I need a macro with the logic that looks for the min/max value appropriate to each specific day (which is the tricky part). Below is the detailed explanation of the process.

1)The "Main" sheet, Column A, contains days 01/05/1999 – 01/29/1999 (days are already in numerical value format). Begin in A1 and this will be the first daily value. Find the Max Value in Column D corresponding to the numerical daily value of A1.

2)Once Max Value found in Column D, Column B of same row will have the time the Max Value occurred.

3)Count time Max Value occurred in “Time Count” sheet Column C of corresponding time.

4)Move down to next daily value. Continue this process to last row in sheet.

For example, “Main” Sheet, day 01/05/1999 (numerical daily value 36165), Max Value is 1.1835 found in Cell D12. B12 has the time at 2:45. A “1” is then placed next to 2:45 or C14 of the “TimeCount” sheet. If the next day’s Max Value occurred at the same time, then a 2 would be placed in C14...........................

I am assessing the impact of product price increases on volume (qty) and sales (ÂŁ/$).

The prices are changed sporadically and at no set intervals. For example pries were changed on the 15th Jan and 13th Feb this year.

We have set reporting dates (calender months) so i am hoping to be able to divide the report which shows sales & qty's during the 15th Jan - 13th Feb segment and apportion them to the correct months.

I have the start & end dates of the calender months in cells A4:B18 and each time a new report is run (ie 15th Jan or 13th Feb, these dates go across the top i.e. cell C3 = 15th jan & D3 = 13th Feb.

I would like to return a % in cell C4 which relates to the amount of total days in the segment that relate to Jan (ie. 29 days in the segment, 16 relate to Jan so 55.2%).

Cell C5 would then return a % which relates to the amount of total days in the segment that relate to Feb (29 days in the segment, 13 relate to Feb so 44.8%).

Cells D4&D5 would return the next reporting segment and how many days in Jan/Feb respectively (the answer will be 0 but a constant formula acrosss all would be perfect. tried to give as much info as poss.

I have a set of worksheets all of which are identical and covered by first:last sheets

What I am trying to do is come to up with a minimum figure for cell G30

With the proviso that it is a minimum of 30 as some of the entries in G30 are less than that figure.

=MIN(first:last!G30) is not the answer as it gives an answer of zero.

I am having trouble with large data sets of rents by market: trying to find the peak rent in a time-series, and then look for the next trough rent in time. I tried using the Newsletter 3 techniques which feels like the right direction, but I am not getting the nesting right or some of the parameters in the functions.

So, within each time-series I need to find the MAX value (peak rent), wherever that is in the array. Then I need to look to the right of that exact MAX value and find the exact MIN value (trough rent), whereever that is in the array (again, to the right of the MAX value).

A small sample of what the data set looks like:

I would like to design a macro that can find a value within a cell in a colunm and copy a value in the row then count occurances of that value next time a match in the colunm is found on a different row, but also do this only if the date range in the row is within a specified range. So a multi-critieria search and copy operation.

To explain a little better here is a simplified example of my spread sheet that is in input for the macro.

A

B

C

D

E

1

PART NO.

date in

date out

comp1

comp2[code]......

Column A lists the coponents found on the same row as the seach critria, in this example "12-3".

Column B lists the number of occurances of the components. This search is limited to a date range input by the user.

So what I can see is the components replaced and the amount of times replaced on a specific item over a fixed time.

*It is difficult to describe this problem without showing the macro output, but this is just an example for the purpose of explanation.

I know a bit of VBA programming and initially I started with an input box that asks for the part number and limit dates.

I have been trying to solve this problem for the past couple of weeks and I have not been able to do so. I have come to do the operation manually, and it really takes a lot of my time, so if you guys could help me, I would really appreciate it.

Basically the problem is this:

In column "A" I have what I call point numbers for all the data entries.

In column "B" I have the station (or location) at which I vary slightly a parameter (represented by column "E") to give me a value shown in column "D" (the "Z" value, as shown in the sheet).

So basically you can see that my station 0 has 11 different "E" parameters (0, -1, -2.62, -5, etc) and each of them has a "Z" parameter (390.76, 390.775, etc).

What I am trying to do is to come up with a table that shows a summary of the following:

A column with each of the stations (0, 20, 40, etc -- notice that I have some weird numbered stations like 411.89).

Another column with the "E" parameter corresponding to the lowest (or minimum) "Z" parameter within the station range.

And a final column with the minimum "Z" parameter corresponding to its "E" parameter, which is included in the station range

You can see in yellow the way I have been doing this and you can see that it would take me so much time to accomplish the task.

I need a formula that will return the minimum value from a column range that flexs without having to manually go in an change row references. There is a blank row between each section of data in order to separate info. As an example:....

Need to formula to flex to include rows 5 thru 7 in the first section but expand to include rows 9 thru 13 in the second section. =MIN(A5.A7) works but how do I get next section to flex to =MIN(A9.A13) without manually changing the cell references? There is always a blank row in between the sections to separate.

So i need a way to find the minimum number in a given set of numbers without there being multiple minimums. For example if you had 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 the minimum would be 1. If however you had 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5....i want excel to recognize there are multiple minimums (two 1's) and produce a warning (i realize this probably needs to be coupled with an if statement).

I have a table that contains various aspects of information about customer cases, and I want to replicate a user 'picking up' the case by a simple press of a button.

Users have access to only one Country, so I want to be able to search a particular column for the lowest value, but check that the Country for that row matches the user's access. If it doesn't, I then want to find the next lowest value in the column, and this is what's perplexing me??? As mentioned, I want to click a button to trigger this, and therefore want to use VBA code.
