Hi all,

This is my first post here:

I'm attempting to identify the smallest number within a column. I have a series of sheets with a column that's filled with profit from forex trades.
The formula is here

=MIN(IF(O4:O254<0,MIN(O4:O254),O4:O254))

It is working fine to give the largest loss

I have an overview sheet also which has more data in the columns and I need to exclude some figures from the calculation, they are giving skewed results

=COUNTIFS(F2:F252,"isnumber", N2:N252, MIN(IF(N2:N252<0,MIN(N2:N252),N2:N252)))

Please note that the N/O column difference is only due to the way the information is displayed, the

Essentially I am trying to exclude the any rows from the calculation if the cell in F is blank.

The current formula returns a $0.00 value but that's not correct.

Any assistance would be wonderful and very appreciated.

Welcome to Mr. Excel.

Do you want to count something or just find the smallest in column N without considering blanks in column F?
Does this do what you want?

Code:
=MIN(IF(F2:F252<>"",N2:N252,""))

Hey there,

Cheers for the quick reply!

That formula unfortunately gives the values I'm trying to exclude which is super odd.

My formula should be selecting the values in column N where the values in column F are NOT blank.

Yes, I can see, I"m confused as to why they are still coming up too. I wonder if I might post something for you?

I realise that's a lot of information but it may help hopefully.

There are other alternative as well: for example excluding "Balance" from the calculation in Column D Please ignore the 0 in cloumn F,I added that to try a different formula but got the same result

I should add the target Cell is U13, you probably could have figured that out but just in case you got lost in the sea of information.

How is column F created? It appears there aren't blanks but there are 0s.

Try:
Code:
=MIN(IF(F2:F252<>0,N2:N252,""))

Thanks so much for you help! That formula returned -$100 too ( data from N49).

The zeros were added after, I have removed them again, the natural state of the cell is blank. And that's how they are now.

The data is pulled from an HTML sheet which is generated from a trading program.

Is there a way to exclude "balance" from the formula (Column C), though your formulas should work, I'm really not sure why they are returning values that should be excluded??

Is the data in F actually blank in some cells or could there be a non-printing character in the cells that look blank?

I just copied all of your data from the above example, removed all the 0s from column F (made the cells blank) and used the original formula and got -42.44 as the min value in column N.
