# Finding Smallest Value Within A Range

Jun 6, 2014
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.

Lets pretend that I have a boat load of automatically generated values from a different program.

There's a specific equillibrium point to a certain measurement, but this measurement involves a lot of fluctuation. To get a near accurate result, I must find the maximum value in an entire graph on the Y Axis value(Column B). Ofcourse, this is easily done using the =MAX value

Exactly 450 seconds (X Axis value(Column A)) positively and negatively from this point, something like this happens.

Problems:

A.) I must find the highest points 450 seconds negatively ( X ) to the max of the entire graph.

B.) I must find the lowest point closest to the two points we uncovered, both on the positive ( X -->) side.

C.) The fluctuation of every spike can last to about ±30 measured points in the graph. (±20 seconds) Thus, the maximum point surrounding the +/- 450 seconds (±693 x values) needs to be accurately predicted as being around 450 seconds, not 10 seconds more or less.

D.) The measurement is known to something glitch out and suddenly get a spike somewhere along the road, which will then quickly fall back down, which is a false maximum level. How can I prevent excel from taking this as the maximal point?

Remember, this needs to be fully automated into a macro later on, ergo, I cannot manually add the formulas to all the (650 different) sheets.

I have 25 days before the project gets cancelled if this doesn't make it.

I'm after a formula to find the smallest unique value in a range

For example..

1

1

2

3

Small(Range,1) = 1

Small(Range,2) = 1

But i need the second row to show '2' as the result.

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 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?

D3 = SMALL(H6:H45, COUNTIF(H6:H45,0) +1)

to determine smallest value in range excluding 0 is it possible to link that smallest value to another value like a name?

Eg. H6 = 5 K6 = Ben

H7 = 4 K7 = John

H8 = 9 K8 = Ted

Thefore D3 = John

I am looking for a formula that will output the highest and lowest value in a range. Column A contains a range of numbers, some of which repeat and in column B i'd like to extract ONE instance of the highest and lowest value in Column A, preferable the last instance.

See example below and in column B the desired output.

Column A

160

90

120

I am trying to write code that will locate either a 0 or the smallest negative number in a range, eg,

example 1,

8, 6, 2, 0, -0.5, -2

the result would be 0

example 2,

8, 6, 2, -0.5, -2

the result would be -0.5

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 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:

0

3.196408441

4.491972091

4.491972091

4.491972091

Equation:

=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(SMALL(IF((NumRange)=SMALL(NumRange,1),ROW(NumRange),""),1),1))

I have attached xl sheet for ref.

I have value in E2(5),F2(10)=G2(5[sub of F2-E2])

I need to find E2(5) value in B2:B21 and the same of F2 also

After finding that

(eg): E2 value 5 present in B6 cell and it should come to c6 cell same of F2 also

Now It should select C6 to C11 cells.(ref of B6 to B11,ie,5 to 10)

I tried in vba and formuals but i couldnt find solution.

Book1.xlsx

I have two sheets of data and two tables (1=finial 2=data comparison) I am trying to figure out some kind of formula or vba that can easily tell me that the location point in table one data comparison matches the location in table two. The VPMDFS (location footage) in table two or NDE data can be a range, say vpmdfs.NDE + or - 3 ft. so the ILI or source record should fall in between this range. Once the match has been made I need to copy and paste that record onto sheet one all in the same row. I have been scratching my head and researching for weeks and cannot come up with a simple solution. My problem with all the scenarios that I've tried is the formulas what the data in the data comparison sheet to already be in the same row. Please reference my attached work book for examples.

I want to be able to find all the 0 differences (i.e debit = credit) cut that group out of that sheet and paste it to a new sheet in the same workbook. I have the code to find the 0 difference but I don't know how to select the range that makes up that difference and cut and paste it to a new page.

I name a range "MyList".

In another cell, I use Data.Validation.List and use "MyList" as the source.

Now I find another range named "HisList". Is there some way to determine if "HisList" is being used as a source for some other validation somewhere in the workbook?

"Trace Dependents" doesn't work.

The data I need is in the middle of the worksheet (A16:B41), is there way to define the range so that excel only looks at that range and finds the last row of data?

Code:

Worksheets(i).Activate

lastRow = ActiveSheet.Columns("A").Find("*", SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, LookIn:=xlValues).row

Range("A16:B16" & lastRow).Select

Selection.Copy

Sheets("difference Check").Activate

Is there a property to, given a certain range, return the name of the range?

I have used the name property and gotten a name in the form worksheet!address, but I am trying to return the name that I have given the range.

I was planning on using:

'returns the name if it exists, else returns ""

Function findName(myRange As Range) As String

Dim name As name

For Each name In ActiveWorkbook.names

If name = myRange.Address Then

findName = name.NameLocal

Exit Function

End If

Next

findName = ""

End Function

However, this code isn't working because when comparing name to myRange.Address, name includes the worksheet that the range is on, but myRange.Address doesn't.

Even if I get the above code to work, it will take quite a while because I have many names in my worksheet, and would be running the findNames function many times

=IF(COUNTIF('Deal Calculations'!E4:E30,"Pandy Mandy"),'Deal Calculations'!B4,"£0")

Above is one of the formulaes that I am using and I tried editing, to no avail.

Anyway here it is, I need to search E4 - E30 for a particular name, lets say Pandy. Now if pandy is found, then a cell on another tab has to equal a cell which is 2 cells on the left. from which the cell which contains the name is located.

here is a psuedo version of it...

Search E4-E30 Find a cell which contains 'Pandy' If pandy is found, 2 cells to the left then a cell on another tab is equal to that.

So I have multiple columns of numerical data,

I have to find the sum of all numbers between 10 and 40 within a column, NOT cell 10 to 40 but the actual number 10 and 40.

How do I do that?

Is it SUMIF? I cannt seem to grasp this.

How can I determine what the bottom row is in a range in VBA? I have an SheetChange event sub that takes in Target as Range. I want to know what the first/last row/column is in the Range. So, for example, say the Sheet has values in A1:B5 and I paste over A1:B4. Target will be A1:B4. I need a method that returns 4. I tried Target.End(xldown).row, but that gives me 5 (since theres data in A5).

I have the code below which does work and looks up a piece of text in A1 (in this case the word exhaust) within the contents of column B. If the text is found (either part or whole) it returns a Y and if not an N in column C.

It works fine but I can't work out how to get it to repeat should I then want to look at a value in A2, A3 etc without removing any Y had Y already been displayed due to a prior word in the list. Below are the results I'd want.

Column AColumn BColumn CExhaustWheel inc TyreNClockClutchNPipeExhaust - SingleYExhaust - DoubleYWindowNFront ClockYDoorNSeatNBonnetNRear PipeY

Sub FindSomeText()

'Application.ScreenUpdating = False

Range("C1", Range("C65536").End(xlUp)).Clear

keyword = Range("a1").Value

Range("b1").Select

Do Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell)

If InStr(1, ActiveCell.Value, keyword) = 0 Then

I know how to find the last row of a continuous range. it's simply:

Code:

someRng(someRng.Count).row

How do you find the last row of a non-contiguous range though? Assume the range is vertically laid out and I don't want to do any looping.

I am trying to update our sickness spreadsheet for work to make it a little more 'intuitive' and less cumbersome to use. There are dates (by day) accross the top, with staff names below. If someone is off sick, the manager writes the number of hours lost to sick in that day, under the correct day, then uses back color / font color to show its sick.

Our work uses a 3 periods of absence or more over a rolling 12 months and the staff are issues with a warning, same with over 8 days off sick. If they are off for longer than 14 days they are long term sick.

I would like excel to show whether each staff member has met any of those criteria in the last 12 months by either highlighting their name or putting text into an adjacent cell.

I have tried using offset, named ranges and anything else I could think of to automatically increase the range +1 day very day, but I cant !

I have a set of data that has repeating column headers. So, on a sheet called "January" I have "Forecast" and "Actual" headers that repeat over and over underneath "Week 1", "Week 2", etc. On a different sheet (called "2014"), I'm trying to write a formula that will produce the latest or rightmost number underneath the "forecast" header. What I want is to be able to input data into the "January" sheet every week so that I have a record of progress and I want the "2014" sheet to show the latest data for every month.

I have created the attached spread sheet to work out and calculate gp on products. Sheets and userform1 are working perfectly how ever userform2 wont load and I believe its something to do with the named range? The idea for this userform was to select a product from combobox1 and then change the price on sheet1 and clear the price on sheet 2 in the different sizes.

Also userform2 i would like to create it so that if any of the fields are left blank it wont change price of selected field in sheet 1 and wont clear selected area in sheet 2.

Finally is there a way on userform1 to shrink the userform size depending on how many sizes are needed?
