# Returning Earliest And Latest Date For Unique ID?

Jun 25, 2014

I need an excel function to return the earliest and latest date for a particular/unique ID.

For example: In my sample workbook, the earliest date for all the columns with ID = 1 should return 11/1/2001 and the latest date should be 12/2/2011. If all the dates for a particular ID are the same, it should just return that date. For example, for ID = 2, all dates are 5/5/2010 so the earliest and latest dates should equal 5/5/2010. The earliest and latest dates have to be for each unique ID.

## Finding Earliest And Latest Dates

Jan 4, 2009

I have a workbook with two sheets.

Sheet1 contains details of all of the jobs I do.
Sheet2 is my customer list.

Customers appear only once in sheet2, but may appear mutiple times in sheet1.

In sheet1 I have customer name, lead date, job date et al.
In sheet2 I have customer name, first date, last date et al

I am trying to populate first and last date in sheet2 from the lead date and job date in sheet1.

Sheet1 has a range of 500 jobs

## Latest Date Of Unique IDs

Aug 4, 2014

I'm needing to finding the latest date, of each unique ID (and Name, Criteria).

In my attachment ('Table'), the "Newest" column with the result of "Yes" is what my calculated result should be.

Any formula here (outside of a Pivot)? Because, I then need to delete all of my "No" results from the list.

## Pull Out Earliest And Latest Dates Associated With Text String In Workbook

Feb 7, 2014

I'm trying to pull out the earliest and latest dates associated with a text string in a workbook.

Min Max dates example.xlsx

i.e. in this example, I want one column to display the earliest date associated with DU 145, and the next column to display the latest.

From what I understand, I need an array formula to do this and have written the following, which works:

=MIN(IF(\$A\$2:\$A\$6=A2,\$B\$2:\$B\$6))
(confirmed with CSE) - and the same for MAX.

Where I'm struggling is that DU 145 may be entered in the workbook as DU145, DU 145 or DU-145 and I need to take all of them into account. I tried:

=MIN(IF(\$A\$2:\$A\$6="du*145",\$B\$2:\$B\$6))

As this works in a COUNTIF formula in the same sheet. But this just returns a date of 00/01/1900. I'm new to array formulae & haven't really worked them out yet. Is there a way to do this? I assume it's something to do with the way I'm entering text as removing the wildcard * makes no difference.

## Deleting Duplicate Rows Based On Earliest Or Latest Time?

Mar 19, 2014

Below is an example of an Excel sheet I'm working with: [URL]

Basically, I'm trying to delete the duplicate rows by matching ID, Date and Type. If ID, Date and Type are the same, then, I want to only keep the record with the earliest Time in case of Type = In and the latest Time in case of Type = Out.

So, for example, in the case of ID = 1, there are 3 records for In, I only want to keep the one where Time is: 8:01 as this is the earliest. The other 2 records should be deleted.

Similarly, in the case of ID 3, I want to keep the record where Time = 18:05 as this is the later time out of the 2.

Can this be achieved by Conditional Formatting or Macro or VBA?

## Pulling Earliest And Latest Times From A List Using Lookup / Formula?

Jul 25, 2014

I'm trying to pull the earliest and lasted times out of a list of time stamps. Say I have a column full of clock in and clock out times and wanted to find the first clock in time and the last clock out time (just an example). My lookup_value would be a Store number. I can't post it here due to legality reasons, but I have a column a store numbers that will be my lookup values and I need to find the earliest and lastest time in a list of data on another tab.

## Retrieving Earliest Time And Latest Time?

Apr 26, 2012

I have something like the following that has a name and a time associated with it for each given name:

A23-Mar-122:27:18 AMB24-Mar-123:38:56 AMD23-Mar-123:38:44 AMA23-Mar-1210:52:01 PMB24-Mar-122:43:26 AMD27-Mar-123:05:07 AMA27-Mar-123:05:16 AM

What I am looking to find is for that that name (i.e., A) what the earliest entry is for the given day (and put in Start Time). The same for end time but to have that the latest time for that given day.

## Earliest Date From A Column Of Dates

Dec 10, 2008

I have a column of dates listed at the bottom of this post. I am looking to have a formula in a cell that gives me the earliest date from the column. I have tried Min() and Small() with no success. Is it perhaps the "AM" and "PM" that is throwing things off? A small example of the data:

11/21/2008 AM11/09/2008 AM11/09/2008 PM11/09/2008 PM11/10/2008 PM11/11/2008 AM11/11/2008 AM
and it should return 11/09/2008. Thanks in advance any and all.

## Return Corresponding Data From Earliest Date

Jun 1, 2007

What I understand is that balls are drawn in each dated lotto draw and the numbers of the balls thus drawn are entered into a spreadsheet against the actual date of the drawing - and so forth and so forth for each successive drawing.

Here is my version of the question:

If I want to look up the LAST date that a specific ball was drawn, the array formula that daddylonglegs provided works 100%, but when I replace the MAX in that formula with MIN (to get the earliest date??), it ALWAYS responds with 00/01/1900 with the cell formatted as a date, or simply 0 if it is formatted as a number.

I made sure that the ranges did not include empty cells and still it gives me that answer.

I attach the same workbook with daddylonglegs' formula in column D and my "tries" in column F.

## Pick Earliest Date For A Record From Row Of Those Records?

May 30, 2014

We have multiple work orders per opportunity, and each work order has a date. I have a sheet of these work orders which shows the work order #, work order date, and opportunity date. What I want to do is add a column which reports the work order date if it is the earliest instance of a work order for the opportunity (said differently, the first work order for the opportunity). Is there a way to write a formula to report whether the date of the row is the earliest date for a given opportunity, all in the same table?

## Lookup For Succeeding Dates After Earliest Date

However, for the "Second purchase" and "Third purchase", i'm stuck and can't think on how to return the dates.

## Pick The Earliest Date From A Selection Of Dates

Jan 24, 2007

There is a speadsheet at work with a column which has a range of dates (from 18/05/2003 - date) which information gets drawn from every Friday. The information needed from the column is pretty simple but lengthy to expalin. For example...

[url]

As you can the dates are in no order...and need to stay that way. The information needed every week is shown here...

[url]

I have got the formula for the number of enteries between each date but strugling with the earliest date within the dates. I can do it manually by auto filtering the column and looking for the date closest to the earliest date but this is long.

The dates change on a weekly basis...just to throw a spanner in the works.

## Array Formula - The Earliest Date After Today

Jan 16, 2008

I tried searching through the forums, but I don't exactly know how to word my question!

I have a workbook with two sheets: Meetings and MasterStatus

On the MasterStatus sheet, I want to use an array to look up the next meeting date for each taskID (Column C), referencing the Meetings sheet (Column E) to do so.

The formula I have so far doesn't work:

=MIN(
IF(
AND(
Meetings!\$A\$2:\$A\$3000>TODAY()-1,
NOT(ISBLANK(Meetings!\$A\$2:\$A\$3000)),
Meetings!\$E\$2:\$E\$3000=\$C\$7),
Meetings!\$A\$2:\$A\$3000,
0
)
)

## Return Earliest Date Without Corresponding Blank Cell

Apr 26, 2008

I have a date range, containing blanks and values. I need a function to show the earliest date that contains a non-blank value. The function should be robust enough that I can sort by date and still show the correct data.

10/24/2006
10/25/2006 0.08
10/26/2006 0.10

## Min If Function Doesn't Work For Earliest Date Lookup

May 23, 2014

I am having issues with a min if formula, even though i enter it as an array (ctrl +shift+enter), it only returns a zero.

The formula is supposed to return the earliest date from Raw data if the name of the company matches the one from the data validation ('Company lookup'!D3).

Dates are in column D and company name in column M

I checked, the dates are all formatted as dates

=MIN(IF(RAW!\$M:\$M,'Company lookup'!D3,RAW!\$D:\$D))

## Loop A Comparison And On Match Return Earliest Date?

May 25, 2012

Using online examples I am usually capable to reconstruct whatever I need. However, it's the combination of things I need to do now, which has left me banging my head on the keyboard for days now

Here's the data I am working with:

Sheet 1:

Sheet 2:

And here's what I need to get done:

From sheet 1, select first ID entry from Column A.Find matching ID in Column A of sheet 2On match, find in Column B the earliest date belonging to the concerned IDCopy that earliest date next to the corressponding ID in Column B back on sheet 1Return to step 1 and repeat for next ID entry. Do until end of list (sheet1)

So the result should look as following on sheet 1:

The major issue I am having is the combination of step 3 and 5. Because it probably means something like moving through an array that's within an array through which one is moving. And I am just missing that bit of experience that allows me to make that thinking step. I just keep falling off if you know what I mean...

## Returning Second Smallest Unique Value

Sep 17, 2009

I'm creating a spreadsheet and have had difficultly creating a function that returns the second smallest unique value.

For example if my data set is:

## Filter For Latest Date

Nov 26, 2009

I have a data field of about 2000 rows & 30 columns.

These contain records on accidents for 56 offices.

One of the columns contains the date an individual had the accident.

There can be a number of records for each office as there are a number of employees in each office who have had accidents over the last few years.

I need to be able to run a macro or set up filters or formulae to show the row containing the most recent accidentin each office, by office. I also need to display the total number of days since the last accident occurred at the end of each row.

The offices are listed in Column B & the date of the last accident is listed in Column V.

## Filter Not Returning Unique Values

Apr 27, 2009

I'm using Excel 2003 and am trying to filter a list of values. The list has duplicate values in it. When I use Filter>Advanced Filter and select "Unique records only" the filter only eliminates some of the duplicates. If there are 4 values of 100, it may filter 2 of them or none at all. Ultimately I'm trying to end up with a list of values with no repeats.
