# Find A Minimum Query

Jun 25, 2009
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.

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 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 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.

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 want to find out the minimum $ amount in a row with multiple columns but some columns will also have numbers that cannot be converted to string.

What formula could I use to only find the lowest $ amount?

Look in Column A and find the cell that contains "Std A 1" and the cell that contains "Std A 2".

Compare the corresponding values in Column B, and multiply the lowest value by .2

I've tried using various methods (find, if cell.value.instr) but I keep getting errors. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I have inherited some legacy templates (Standard, Leave and Exception) which cannot be changed. I need to summarise them (Total) selecting the earliest start and the latest finish. (Sample attached). The templates are 90 columns wide and about fifty lines deep so named ranges isn't practicle (I think). I'm running 2003.

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)

How do I find the minimum and maximum numbers in a table if I do not know the size of the table but can assume the user will choose the first cell (upper left cell) of the table and run the macro?

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'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 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.

Is it possible to find the minimum distance between two points using two separate lists of different lengths without creating separate columns of equal row sizes

? I am trying to find the shortest distance form one point to another which is a fixed value. I am using the standard distance formula: =SQRT(((X2-X1)^2)+((Y2-Y1)^2)+((Z2-Z1)^2)).

My X1,Y1, Z1, has 2,000 rows in three columns that need to be compared to find the minimum distance from my one row/column of X2,Y2,Z2.

Is there a command that could go through and use each row of the X1, Y1, Z1, while looking for the MIN of the above formula without having to create an equal amount of rows for the X2, Y2, Z2?

I know I could do it by running this out the long way and then finding the min after I do all the math but I am wondering if there is an automated way for Excel to go through and do the forumla and then only return the MIN value?

Daily At the end of day We receive sales files from our different teams, these files are received at different times due to difference in working shifts. I have collated last one month data and from this data I want to know the earliest and maximum time and date on which we received the files in last month, so that i can fix the receiving time for all regions.

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.

I'm trying to use solver to find the minimum value of a cell by changing 5 separate cells. These cells are subject to a set of constraints that are formulae. On top of that I have a large number of these solve's to run (The spreadsheet is creating randomly distributed data to form a Monte Carlo simulation). Therefore I am referencing the formulas using the ActiveCell, Offset() function. For some reason when running this code none of the values are changed. Also I changed the UserFinish to false so I could see what solver was doing at each solve, It stops at the correct cell (one after the final cell) but without me having to confirm it each time.

Here is the ....

I am trying to write a code enabling some calculations. As part of this code I want to find an integer in an excel range. I set the variable (integer) as Rvalue and wrote the following:

Selection.Find(Rvalue).Activate

which works fine as long as the find is successful. The issue I have however is when the variable cannot be found. I tried using the "iserror" function in vba but it appears that excel/vba does not recognise this issue as an error; I could use an excel formula (i.e. if(iserror(vlookup...) but I would prefer to find out how to handle the issue in vba.

I am trying to perform an SQL query on an Excel worksheet, as per one of the examples in Michael Alexander's book "Excel and Access Integration: With Microsoft Office 2007" and I am encountering an error message.

Could not find installable ISAM

To clear I am trying to pull data from one Excel workbook to another using SQL.

I am using Excel Excel 2010 64 bit.

This is the code I am running.

Code:

Sub GetData_From_Excel_Sheet()

Dim MyConnect As String

Dim MyRecordset As ADODB.Recordset

[Code]....

I have some across a few times that relates specifically to Excel 2010 64 bit is that I need to install the following driver

Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable

However I already have this driver (I installed when I was trying to figure out how to write from Excel to Access).

Why am I receiving this message. It occurs when my code reaches this line:

Items in Column A1 are calculated by (B2/4+5)*1.4 Items located under the columns 2000, 3000, 4000, etc... 10,000 are calculated by taking the top number, eg 2000/(A1 cell value)+the column B number. 2000/7+0 = 286 (rounded numbers)

I need to find an way to look up for x number (2000,3000,4000, etc...) find the smallest number in that column and then return the value in column A1.
