# Array formula MIN/MAX NESTED IF STATEMENT

Hi everyone,

Im having issues with a formula. I want it to be a nested if statement, so that if it says "start" then use the min formula and if it says "Stop" use max. I also want it in array format, and it was working when I had them separated (using min for start and max for stop in different formulas) but I want it all together.

This is what I have right now and I know doesn't work:
=IF(G2="Start",MIN(IF('Raw Data'!\$B:\$B=Sheet1!H\$1,IF('Raw Data'!\$A:\$A=\$B2,'Raw Data'!\$C:\$C))),IF(G2="Stop",MAX(IF('Raw Data'!\$B:\$B=Sheet1!H\$1,IF('Raw Data'!\$A:\$A=Sheet1!\$B107,'Raw Data'!\$H:\$H)))))

This worked before:

{=MAX(IF('Raw Data'!\$B:\$B=Sheet1!H\$1,IF('Raw Data'!\$A:\$A=Sheet1!\$B107,'Raw Data'!\$H:\$H)))}

and

{=MIN(IF('Raw Data'!\$B:\$B=Sheet1!H\$1,IF('Raw Data'!\$A:\$A=Sheet1!\$B53,'Raw Data'!\$C:\$C)))}

in two separate rows.

I want these two together and use MIN if it says start on the column next to it and use the MAX one if it says stop.

Hope someone is able to help me! Thank you!

### Excel Facts

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Is G2 on Sheet1?

Yes!

Control+shift+enter, not just enter:

=IF(G2="Start",MIN(IF('Raw Data'!\$B:\$B=H\$1,IF('Raw Data'!\$A:\$A=\$B2,'Raw Data'!\$C:\$C))),IF(G2="Stop",MAX(IF('Raw Data'!\$B:\$B=H\$1,IF('Raw Data'!\$A:\$A=\$B107,'Raw Data'!\$H:\$H)))))

should work as intended. Try to avoid referencing whole columns in array-processing formulas like this one for reasons of efficiency.

Aladin, it gives me back FALSE all across.

Aladin, it gives me back FALSE all across.

For one thing, if G2 is empty you'll get FALSE. Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
