Find Minimum Value In Non-successive Range Of Numbers
Nov 9, 2012
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):
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.
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).
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 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)
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$2) of the minimum value in that range.
This command does it but it only works on a column. it does not accept a range spanning more than one column. =CELL("address",INDEX(B2:B7,MATCH(MIN(B2:B7),B2:B7,0))) this will tell me the address of the minimum value.. but in a column... I need a range of many columns.
So I tried converting things to a Table.. but it never worked. basically the MATCH command is my problem. It only accepts single-column-ed ranges.
I need a function like a sumif, but rather than adding together numbers, I want it to pick the minimum. For example, if I had a list of prices for various products, I want the formula to go and find the lowest price for a particular product.
Sheet4 in my book looks like this: .............A.......................B................................C..................
I......Invoice No…..…Starting Serial No……...……Ending Serial No 2…………ND12………..6011000000013652……. ..6011000000103652 3…………ND13………..6011000000116526……....6011000000246977 4…………RF4……….….6006000001255724……..…6006000011249564 5.........RF4...........6005000000023652.........6005000000095624
note that the last 4 numbers of the series are randomly generated for security reasons and are not part of the range of the the serial No’s
So Invoice ND = 10 consecutive numbers, Invoice ND13 = 14 and Invoice RF4 = 1000 and RF4(again) = 8
The list on this sheet is a mile long
What I need is a “search box” with two windows in it
In one box I will type a serial number and in the second box I will get the Invoice number
The challenge is that the serial number could be between Starting and Ending serial No’s thus if I were to type serial number 6006000001086598 in the first box the answer in the second box will be : RF4
I have a range of values in a1:f500 the values are all numbers between 1-25. I then have a value in cell h1. what i need to do is find all numbers that equal to 9 in the range a1:f500 and replace all these 9's with the formula =$h$1 so that i can simply change the values in the range a1:f500 by changing the value to say 12 in cell h1. could someone please text me the vba code that needs to be entered for sheet 1?
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).
I have the following columns and rows that I need to MOD by 15. Once they have been MOD, I need to set a range and find all numbers in that range of say, eg; all number between 9.6 and 9.8. Really hope someone can help, have been working on it day and night. I can do them one at a time, but is very time consuming. Is there a formula that will do the whole worksheet in record time?
2/18/1975, 156.7519, 175.8083, 235.4675, 253.765 4/11/1973, 237,7642, 346.5342, 113.3145, 321.435 5/12/1985, 342.7625, 123.4233, 253.4321, 357.234 etc. etc. etc.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
Referring to the post Find Min Value In Multiple Columns And Match The Header. I would like to go little bit further and see is there a way to find and match not just in multiple columns but in multiple tables (see the example)
I have a workbook with 70+ worksheets that pulls data from a single input sheet and I need to increment the cell references in each worksheet by 1. Is there a way to do that without having to manually open each worksheet and change the cell reference.
VB: 'Row 27 on worksheet 1 cell B27' =+Input!$D3 'Row 27 on worksheet 2 cell B27' =+Input!$D4 'Row 27 on worksheet 3 cell B27' =+Input!$D5 Thru worksheet 70 'Row 27 on worksheet 70 cell B27' =+Input!$D72
