I am trying to find the smallest values in a list. that part is easy (use SMALL). But, I want the ref to the cell where that value is in, not the value itself. Additional problem occurs when more than one of these values are the same. Example: A1 = 1; A2 = 3 ; A3 = 2 ; A4 = 2 ; etc. If I want the smallest, I want "A1" as result, for the 2nd smallest I want "A3", for the 3rd smallest I want "A4". So you see that a MATCH formula will not work beceause some of the values are the same.

I'm looking to find the smallest number in a column that fits a certain criteria, and I'm not sure where to put the if function, or if I can use some other 'qualifiers'.

I was thinking something along the lines of If(E:E<>2, Small(E:E, ROW()-1),____) but I'm not sure what the "false" argument for the if function would be in the blanks. I don't want there to be one.

Where E:E is the range I'm looking in, and 'not equal to 2' is the criteria I'm looking to have filled.

So, "Find the smallest number in E:E that does not equal 2" would be the wording.

I've a large excel file contain a sheet of values. With a Macro I would like to 1) find the smallest absolute value in a certain column 2) find the row number where this value was found 3) Copy certain values from this row to another place.

I am having some data running into 60 (C:BJ) columns and 200 rows. It is the record of dates query raised and answered with refernce to query number in the A coulmn. I have zero value as entry for the unused cells in this range due to some constraints. I need to find the smallest and the largest non-zero date in this range for analysis purpose. I plan to use the difference between these 2 dates to calculate turn around time for a query.

Problem is to find the smallest and the largest non zero date within range C6:BJ6 which would be used as input in the Networkdays formula.

I have been using the SMALL function to find 10 smallest values in a list, however, some of the values are the same, is there a way of only having the 10 smallest unique values within a list?

I am using the following array equation to return the value in column 1 for the smallest 5 numbers. It works for small 1 and 3 but i get a #NUM! for 2 , 4 , and 5. The smallest 5 numbers are:

1) The first column needs to be search to match a text string.

2) If the text string matchs, I need excel to evaluate the number in the second column and find the MIN value of all numbers associated with the text string.

So:

Joe 50 Jim 12 Joe 10 Rob 25 Jim 8 Rob 99

When searching for "Joe", the function would return 10. When searching for "Jim" the function would return 8. For "Rob", it would return "25".

I have a list of 200,000 e-mail addresses in a excel document in column A. What i am trying todo is find all the duplicate e-mail addresses within the list that appears more than four times.

I have tried this forumla in colunm B so it lists how many times the record appears: =countif($A$2:$A$244270,A2) which works fine and then a number appears next to each record. Then i pressed the sort filter to arrange all the records in number order so all the 5's are at the top of the worksheet but that does'nt always list them in the correct number order.

Basically all i want todo is find all the records that appear in my list more than five times then make a list of just one of those 5 records so i can remove them from my e-mail system.

I need a formula that will find the second smallest number in a row. The row can contain as many as 200 numbers with many of them being zeros. That makes using the "small" function impossible.

I have 2 columns of numerical values (A and B).. I want to make a formula that takes the Sum of A/the Sum of B, neglecting the smallest value of A and it's corresponding B value

For example...

19 20

20 20

15 20

Clearly, 15 is the smallest value, and I want to know how I can take the sum of A/sum of B neglecting the 15

Basically, I want the formula to do (19+20)/(20+20)

The actual scenario has a lot more than 3 values, and I don't want to go through all of them (they change frequently)

I know how to make the simple formula..=SUM(A:A)/SUM(B:B), but I do not know how to make excel recognize, and not include the smallest value..

I am using excel 2007 and I need help with the following if anyone would be kind enough. I have a dynamic array that consists of stream of 1's and 0's. I want to be able to find the largest sequence of 1's and the smallest sequence of 1's. So at a point in time the array mite be 111110001101111000 and I want to be able to dertermine the longest contiguous sequence of 1's. But as I say the array is dynamic and so I need to do that after each input.

I currently am working with a worksheet that has over 250,000 data points. It is a spreadsheet for a company in which different work order are organized. A given work order can have several parts (ranging anywhere from one component to 40ish) and thus the height of the cells in which each specific work order is placed differs from work order to work order. For each component, the spreadsheet tells you how many can currently be made based on the materials available. What I would like to do, for each specific work order, is go through the data and simply tell whether or not the work order can be completed (the quantity of each specific component needed is also given in the spreadsheet) and then report out exactly how many components can be made.

Ultimately, this means that a "limiting factor" analysis must be done. For instance, if the work order is asking to create plastic bottles that consist of the bottle, the cap, and the label and it asks for 3 bottles but only 2 caps are able to be made, the limiting factor would be the caps and thus only two bottles could be made and the work order could not be fully completed.

The spreadsheet is set up based on another worker here, I am just trying to come up with a way to analyze it. Cells A1:Axxxxx are the work order numbers and the size of these cells differ because they are merged to fit the number of components they have. The componenets available are then ranged C1:Cxxxxx etc and the quantity needed are also listed in a similar fashion. What sort of structure could I use.

I have a large set of numerical data, with each column having a text heading in the first row.

I want to use a function similar to HLOOKUP that can return the numerical value in a certain row of a column that has a specified heading....AND if there is more than one numerical value that meets the criteria, I want it to return the lowest numerical value.

My numerical data cannot be sorted into ascending order.

Find smallest numbers in the range ignoring zeros. I want it returned as value "1", all others - as value "0". Example: range A1:J1 contains - 5,0,7,3,6,5,8,0,9,3 desirable result in the range A2:J2 - 0,0,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,1

In column A, I have a list of names. In column B, I have a list of values. I want column C to show me which name has the smallest value from column B. In other words, if there are 5 names, I want ONE name to give me a value of 10 (for the smallest value), and the rest of the names I want to show zero.

I also have in column D another list of values. In column E, I want to show first, second and third place amongst the list of values from column D. The rest of the names I want to show zero.

I am looking for a function like MATCH if the match type were set to -1. However my data is sorted in ascending order. I am mining data from a Pivot Table, and it has dates across the top. Of course the pivot table will have the data sorted in ascending order from left to right. I want to find the first date that is greater than today. With weekends and holidays I can't just use TODAY()+1. Is there a function that can do what I am asking? Also I do not want to change the pivot table itself.

Currently we are using the formula below to get an average of column E in a spreadsheet. I was wondering how to modify the formula to get the smallest number in that column rather than the average.
