# Thread: Finding lowest number in a column

1. I need to find and highlight the single lowest number in a column. If more than one, do nothing. Can the highlighting be done by conditional formatting?

You can use
=AND(A1=MIN(A:A),COUNTIF(A:A,A1)=1)
as your conditional formatting formula for cell a1 of column A.

3. Thank you very much! This works great.
One other question, I need to add this to some columns with formulas. Will this interfer with those formulas?

No, it will not. The conditional formatting formula will calculate based on the results of the formulas in your cells.
