I am using a MIN function to determine my lowest Subcontractor Bid. =MIN(R86,U86,Z86,AC86,AF86,AI86) I have six columns for 6 subs. Herein lies the problem. I only have three subs bidding so the MIN is picking up the first zero columns as Low Sub with zero dollars. Is there a way to do this without revising the MIN function to take out the three cells I do not need.

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

If you leave the columns with no value blanc the min function will work.

Are the cells between the 6 columns empty? If yes try:

=MIN(IF(R86:AI86>0,R86:AI86))

confirmed with ctrl + shift + enter, not just enter.

Cell R86= $0, Cell U86=$70,000, Cell Z86=$80,000,The remaining 3 cells are $0. I still am getting a $0 in the MIN cell.
