I am using the min function to determine the lowest value among 5 values in Column A to E. I face a problem in situation where there is only one cell with value above zero and the rest are zero value. In situation like this I would like the result to show the non zero value. How can I do that.

Confirm with CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER rather than just Enter.
