# Find Difference Between Lowest Two Numbers?

Feb 15, 2014
I know this is probably really easy to do but I am new with excel. I have a list of 8 numers in 8 cells and was able to find the lowest. But now I need to take the list and subtract the lowest number from the second lowest and have the difference dispay in the target cell.

I have a series of numbers in cells B2 to G2. The maximum value of each of these columns is found in B5 to G5. Is there a formula that will calculate the percentage of each of the values in row 2 (B2 to G2) and tell me which is the lowest number based on the percentage? Example...

Row 2: 12, 100, 43, 1444, 141, 332

Row 5: 25, 140, 55, 3000, 244, 440

Which number in row 2, is the lowest percentage of the total possible points found in row 5?

B2 is 45% (12 divided by 25), C2 is 71%, D2 is 78%, E2 is 48%, F2 is 58%, G2 is 75%.

I want a formula to tell me in a new cell that "12" (in B2) is the lowest percentage in that series.

I have two sheets:

Sheet one has dates, my prices on each of those days, and the fields h1 h2 h3 h4 (h1 is the closest higher number, h2 is the next closet higher number, etc.) and l1 l2 l3 l4 (l1 is the closest lower number, etc. etc.)

Sheet two has certain dates and prices of a competitor's prices.

What I'm trying to do is two things (see attached):

1) find the four closest higher and four closest lower prices (if available)

2) use only the prices that are on or before the date in question.

I've tried combinations like LARGE and OFFSET and so far it is not getting me anywhere.

Can this be done???

I'm looking for a macro or formula that can calculate the difference to the lowest of col C based on option in colB. See attached. I complete what it should look like in F. Basically, this can be done by sorting the data by colB and using this formual for every group. =C2-MIN($C$2:$C$4). This is not ideal because I have many of these to do and you have to adjust the min range for every group. Plus group sizes will vary.

There has to be a better way. Ideally, I would not like to have to sort the data, unless a macro did it for me....

I am looking for a way to find a highest (and/or) lowest value in a list of numbers. The list keeps getting longer and after a certain point I will need the 2 highest (or lowest), then the 3 highest (or lowest). I know MIN and MAX will find the high and low, but how do I find the 2nd highest, etc?

I have numbers in K12 thru K23 (a few of the cells are blank)

The formula below is what I'm using to figure a golf handicap. I have 40 handicaps to figure this way.

=(((K15+K21+K19+K23+K18)/5)-37)*0.9

I manually picked out the 5 lowest numbers in column K for the formula. I think there should be a better/easier way. Can anyone help me?

I am trying to generate a list of the 5 highest and 5 lowest numbers from a list of scores that range from 1 to 10. I have found the highest and lowest absolute values (numbers over 7.5, and less than 5, out of 10), but I would also like to generate the 5 highest and lowest relative numbers, ie. if there are no scores over 7.5, then the 5 next highest numbers. I have used if/then formulas for the absolute highest and lowest numbers, and a rank/countif formula to rank them. I have no idea how to generate a list of the "relative strengths and weaknesses".

if it is possiable to do a find function to find the lowest value in a colum and then output that entire row. e.g a list of dates, I need to know what is the oldest date and what row that is for reference.

I have three columns with 1 number in each row. I'm trying to find a number, and if that number does not exist in the 3 columns I would like to find the next smaller number. The numbers have up to 4 decimal places. i.e. 16140.0311.

So for example if a user searches for 15950.012, and that does not exist but 15950.009 does with no numbers in between then the answer returned would be 15950.009. Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;I should probably mention that I would like to insert a new line with the number originally searched for, after the number found.

i.e. search for 15950.012. Not found. 15950.009 next lowest. Insert new line after 15950.009.

I have a list of numbers in cells A1:A10, these numbers change frequently. I would like to set up a formula to calculate the 3 lowest values from those numbers and list the three lowest values in cells J1:J3, with lowest value on J1 and the highest of the 3 values in J3.

I know I can use the small/large functions for this, but im not sure how to work it out to use just the 3 lowest values.

I trial tested many another forumla's before posting this.

I'm having a hard time building this simple function see image:

[url]

The formula I need finds the hightest & lowest frequency appears of a number from the index list (index numbers range from 0-9 or if needed changed to 1-50). Along with the hightest/lowest frequency's it needs to also find the second hightest/lowest frequency's i.e.

need result: (9 2) (0 3)

(0 & 3 did not appear so there listed as the lowest frequency's)

Im creating a list of cash and carry places to buy drinks but im so clueless on how to go about doing it.

Heres the situation:

In sheet 1 I have a list of Drinks and the prices the shops are selling it for.

I have duplicates of the drinks so say for bacardi i would have one row with one shop with its price and another shop with another price. I cant put it into columns because there is other information such as the quantity the shop sells in one box etc.

On another sheet (sheet2) i have a kind of shopping list. This has all the drinks listed in Sheet 1 as mentioned above but NO DUPLICATES. What i need it to do is find the drink is Sheet 1 and pick the row with the lowest price from the multiple entries and copy that price and shop name over to sheet2.

I hope this is easy to understand. Please let me know if I need to explain some bits again. Im trying my best to figure out how to do this. I have no clue how to do it in Access.

I am attaching a small sample data set. The first column contains the ID numbers and the second column has the dates. The rest of the columns are some data. When you look at the ID numbers, there will be some common ID Nos. numbers, for example, 300003 (4 in number) but the dates are different for them. What I am going to do is to create a pivot table with the ID Nos and the months. But I want the date to be only the oldest date for example, I want the date for 300003 to be 12/3/2004.

I am looking for a formula that will return the lowest value from a five cell range using letters instead of numbers. If the 5 cell range is empty the cell will remain blank. Not all the 5 cells may be used - it could be anywhere from 1 to all cells.The weightings of the letters in terms of their numerical value are as follows:

F=0

P=1

M=2

D=3

Examples of desired results:

From A1 to A5 the following letters are inputted: P M M D P. Result in A6 = P as P is the lowest numerically in the above list. B1 to B3 = D D M. Result in B4 = M. C1 = F. Result in C2 = F. All cells blank from D1 to D5 = cell in D6 remains blank.

I have 4 grids on the trending tab. I want to find the top 10 highest Color assets from Fleet Volume -Color tab under the correct month.

So for example, if the month is May as in cell G3 on the trending tab, then look at the data under the month of May on the Fleet Volume-Color tab and find the top 10 assets and drop in the City, Address, Model, Serial Number and then volume to the 1st grid on the trending tab, then repeat for Highest B&W

I want to the do the same for each of the other 3 grids on this tab. I want this to update based on the month on both tabs.

Of course, the data on the Fleet Volume tabs is a small range due to size, the data is a lot larger.

Is there are way to do this with a formula? I tried Large and small formula but not too sure how to bring over the other data like City, Model etc.

I have been assigned a task of finding the lowest cost of four possible solutions however I have quite an extensive list of items to work with. To make this easier, I need to be able to find the lowest cost in my row (which is not sorted by lowest to highest value) and return the column heading associated with that lowest cost.

I'm holding a Reverse Auction where people pay a dollar to place a bid, BUT the twist is they are giving me a number that they how will be the lowest number but it has to be the only occurrence of that number (greater than 0).

During the party people can guess as much as they want to pay. I think i'll use a spreadsheet with their names in column A and go out in the row with however many cells for how many numbers they guess (so there would be blank cells in the overall range of the whole list if one guy buys 10 numbers and another only 1, for example).

So, i need a cell at the bottom that tells me the lowest number that wasn't guessed more than one time.

I've found how to FIND duplicates and the lowest number but i don't know how to write it so that it discards the duplicates.

The attached sheet has two rows of numbers. The top one shows used energy, the bottom one produced energy. What I need to know is during what period of the day one has the biggest difference between the two. In this case this is between 1400 and 2000, 28 used and 9 produced (a difference of 19). The question is how this difference can be determined automatically?
