    MIN function in combination with LEFT

    Hello,

    I have several cells with values or ranges of values:

    Example from column A
    0,005
    0,001-0,002
    0,003
    0,002
    0,006

    I would like to find the minimum value

    In this case the formula should take the 5 left characters from every cell and give the minimum result.

    I was thinking to do this...

    ... but obviously it doesn't work.

    I don't want to make a separate column unless it's necessary.

    Thanks for your advice!

    Try this:

    =AGGREGATE(15;6;--LEFT(A1:A5;5);1)

    On a side note - any time you use LEFT/MID/RIGHT, your answer will always be text, and yo cannot use MIN on text.
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you
