    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

    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)))

    Re: Ignore Blank Cells in MINIMUM 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.

    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

    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.
