Hi! I'm not an excel newbie but just learning all about the different functions that can make my job a lot easier.. In the spreadsheet I'm working on I know I need to use a MIN IF formula but I cant seem to get it to work. I have a list of Part Numbers in Column A, repeated multiple times according to how many different purchase prices there have been. Column D has those purchase prices listed. I need column E to be the lowest purchase price for each part number. Any suggestions?

My example:
A D E(Desired)
2000007 8.49 7.27
2000007 7.36 7.27
2000007 8.24 7.27
2000007 7.27 7.27
2000009 8.47 4.85
2000009 4.85 4.85
2000008 3.21 3.21

Welcome to the forum.

Try this entered as an array.
=MIN(IF($A$1:$A$100=A1,$D$1:$D$100))

Thanks for the response. I tried that but I'm getting the lowest of rows 1-100 in every box :confused:

Because you didn't enter as an array. You must enter using Ctrl, Shift & Enter, if done correctly you'll see curly brackets either side in the formula bar.
