Minimum Function In VBA: Find The Minimum Cumulative Cost In Week 0 Out Of The First Three
Jan 4, 2010
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 3 columns 1st one has numbers that reference a wellbore.
2nd have a depth
3rd has a number value (a mud weight) volume
Well API example Depth Weight 42050102600000 10000 10.2 42050102600000 9500 9.2 42050102600000 6500 8.5 42050105000000 12000 11.0 42050105000000 7500 6.0 42050105000000 10200 9.5 42050110100000 8000 8.0 42050110100000 9500 9.2
I want the formula to give me based on the well API number the max depth and the weight associated to that max depth. And the minimum depth and the weight associated to that minimum depth. I'm not sure how to say it in a formula. I don't want to use VBA.
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 3 columns of numerical data. In my fourth column, I would like to return the minimum value from the 3 previous columns (=min). However, instead of returning the lowest number, I would like it to return the column title (=text) of the lowest number. I haven't been able to locate a function that does this.
I have had a lot of luck finding what I need from the search areas, and I even found some information on the formula I am trying to build. The problem is I don't understand it and I need some help. First let me set it up for you. (I do not know the formula)
If cell L125 is has a value >0.00, I need to locate the smallest value the range of cells C125:F125, I then need to subtract L125 from that number, otherwise enter nothing.
This really has me baffled. I tried and I tried but it will not find the smallest value then subtract L125.
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.
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?
Actually with the help of array formula I"m taking out Average, Min, Max value of ranges and I was omitting zero but the problem is occurring that if i have originally zero in my ranges then Average & Minimum function is not working properly.
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)
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.
I am trying to automate a process involving a Grubb's outlier test and calculating averages/stdev of a set of numbers. I have the data in one column and have calculated the average/stdev/%CV of that data. I have also added a formula to calculate Max/Min outliers of that column of data. Then there are cells with IF statements that display either "yes" (for an outlier present), or "no" (if no outlier is present). What I would like to do, if it is feasible, would be to set up formulas to recalculate the average/stdev of the column, taking into consideration either the presence or absence of outliers.
Here is what I invision(cells are for example purposes)
=IF((M9 = yes, Avg(H2:H40)-max(H2:H40)),M9 = no, avg(H2:H40))
So it would calculate the average without the outlier if the outlier "yes" was present, or just calculate the average if "no" is present.
I would also do this with a minimum outlier as well, but i can set that up if this first one is possible.
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.
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'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.
