    Formula to find the oldest date based on a given criteria

    Good Morning All,

    I have 2 columns in sheet1. One has list of states and the other has the dates. Now on the sheet2 i want to add a formula which will pull the oldest date in the 2nd column of sheet 1 based on the state which I select. For example: I want the oldest date of the state "CO". I tried using
    =IF(Sheet1!A:A="CO",MIN(Sheet1!B:B)) formula. But it is not working.

    It would be great if someone could help me with this...

    Thanks in advance

    Rather use:
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    Confirmed with ctrl+shift+enter (not just enter).
    And it would be faster to use smaller ranges than whole column.
