# Help with MAXIFS and MINIFS

#### JARichard74

##### Board Regular
The following formula seems to work. =MINIFS(F4:X4,\$G\$7:\$Y\$7,"COMPLIANT"). In the range F4:X4, I want to find the MIN of F4,H4,J4,L4,N4,P4,R4,T4,V4,X4 if the condition applies. (I'll want to do the MAXIFS as well)
I use the following VBA to add rows to the table
VBA Code:
``````Do Until z = 0
Set tblRow = tbl.ListRows.Add
tblRow.Range.Offset(-1).Copy
tblRow.Range.PasteSpecial xlPasteFormulasAndNumberFormats
z = z - 1
Loop``````
The code works well except that the MINIFS formulas get changed to F4:X9, F5:X10, F6:X11, etc. instead of F4:X4, F5:X5, F6:X6, etc.

Need help to accomplish this, not necessarily with using MINIFS or MAXIFS. Thanks

### Excel Facts

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.

What happens if you remove the copy and paste lines?

As you're working with a table formulas and formats should be automatic consistent with the rest of the column. Attempting to copy and paste could be breaking the relative pattern of the formula.

Same result...

Gonna need more info then, the cause of the problem is something other than the code.

This seems to work for finding MAX (Cell refs and formats copy down properly)
{=MAX(IF(CHOOSE({1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10},\$G\$7,\$I\$7,\$K\$7,\$M\$7,\$O\$7,\$Q\$7,\$S\$7,\$U\$7,\$W\$7,\$Y\$7)="COMPLIANT",CHOOSE({1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10},F4,H4,J4,L4,N4,P4,R4,T4,V4,X4))))}
It does not work for finding MIN because it considers blank cells as 0 (zero). I need a way to exclude blank cells because data could = 0.

If that works then your original formula should also work, with 2 exceptions.
1- Opening the workbook in a version of excel that doesn't support MINIFS or MAXIFS
2- The criteria of "COMPLIANT" is not found in any of the specified cells, or if it is found in any of the other cells in \$G\$7:\$Y\$7 that you have not included in your new formula.

But neither of these exceptions would affect how the ranges are copied down from row to row.

Although, differentiating between empty and 0 could be difficult with MAXIFS / MINIFS.

Try this for MIN, change 15 to 14 for MAX

=AGGREGATE(15,6,F4:X4/(F4:X4<>"")/(\$G\$7:\$Y\$7="COMPLIANT"),1)

I was working with the AGGREGATE formula. What you suggested still copies to F4:X9, F5:X10, F6:X11. Made the correction, put data to evaluate and get a #NUM! error. This formula =AGGREGATE(5,6,(F4,H4,J4,L4,N4,P4,R4,T4,V4,X4)) works perfectly to find the MIN and AGGREGATE(15,6,(F4,H4,J4,L4,N4,P4,R4,T4,V4,X4),1) works to find SMALL. Tried using Option 7 because I have hidden columns however it changes nothing.

It only ignores hidden rows, not hidden columns, although I don't see evidence of either being hidden in your screen cap.

Also, as I already said, the type of formula that you use will NOT affect the way that the rows are being incorrectly entered, that is down to something else which has not yet been identified.

I would use this method to insert the formula instead of trying to copy and paste, change the range as needed.
VBA Code:
``````Range("D4:D8").FormulaR1C1 = "=AGGREGATE(15,6,RC6:RC24/(RC6:RC24<>"")/(R7C7:R7C25="COMPLIANT"),1)"
Range("E4:E8").FormulaR1C1 = "=AGGREGATE(14,6,RC6:RC24/(RC6:RC24<>"")/(R7C7:R7C25="COMPLIANT"),1)"``````

I am posting the worksheets so you can better understand what I am trying to accomplish. This first sheet is the Prep sheet. There is a macro located in F1(SetupBidders) to create the BIDDERS table and another macro located in F3 for items to evaluate (Setup Items). Those two tables change from one project to the next. The Reset Calc button (In the Red area), unhides all the columns and deletes the rows except one in the Calc sheet. Same with Reset Prep (Also in the Red area). Clears the data and resets the two tables. Below is the prep sheet. Looks like you can't see the buttons

Based on the example above, this is what the Calc sheet looks like. You latest proposed AGGREGATE formula did not work. For some reason Excel does not seem to like R7C7:R7C25,it wants to change it to RC77:RC725
