# Ignore Blank Cells in MINIMUM array formula

1. ## Ignore Blank Cells in MINIMUM array formula

I would like the following array formula to ignore blank cells when calculating the minimum value.

{=MIN(IF(\$BQ\$11:\$BQ\$1011>=\$CA11,IF(\$BR\$11:\$BR\$1011<=\$CB11,\$BU\$11:\$BU\$1011)))}

Column BQ contains start distance of data
Column CA contains start distance that I want to look for (in this case 0)
Column BR contains end distance of data
Column CB contains end distance I want to look for (in this case 20)
Column BU contains heights (the actual data I want to find the minimum value of)

Can you please tell me how to ignore blank cells in the array formula

Thanks

{min(if(\$bq\$11:\$bq\$1011>=\$ca11,if(\$br\$11:\$br\$1011<=\$cb11,if(\$bu\$11:\$bu\$1011>0,\$bu\$11:\$bu\$1011,9^9))))}
try this array formula

3. ## Re: Ignore Blank Cells in MINIMUM array formula

Ithink the 9^9 is little bit misleading and unnecessary
This will be sufficient:
=MIN(IF(\$BQ\$11:\$BQ\$1011>=\$CA11,IF(\$BR\$11:\$BR\$1011<=\$CB11,\$BU\$11:\$BU\$1011>0,\$BU\$11:\$BU\$1011)))

Try this array formula,

Hi

The IFERROR formula does ignore the blank cells but does NOT include 0 as a minimum value. Can you please make the formula so that it ignores blank cells (cells with no numbers in them) but includes 0 as a minimum value.

I was thinking perhaps that the something like the following could be somehow included in the formula to ignore the blank cells

(BR\$11:BR\$1011<>"")

Thanks

Maybe this:

=MIN(IF(\$BQ\$11:\$BQ\$1011>=\$CA11,IF(ISNUMBER(\$BR\$11:\$BR\$1011),IF(\$BR\$11:\$BR\$1011<=\$CB11,\$BU\$11:\$BU\$1011))))

Still array entered.

7. ## Re: Ignore Blank Cells in MINIMUM array formula

In other words when the column BU contains a 0.0, I want the formula to return 0.0

8. ## Re: Ignore Blank Cells in MINIMUM array formula

Does that mean column BU may contain empty cells and cells that contain 0?

If that's the case, try this:

=MIN(IF(\$BQ\$11:\$BQ\$1011>=\$CA11,IF(\$BR\$11:\$BR\$1011<=\$CB11,IF(ISNUMBER(\$BU\$11:\$BU\$1011),\$BU\$11:\$BU\$1011))))

Still array entered.

That works Thanks
