Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

I'm a bit vague as to what I am looking for/asking about, but here is an example:

A  | B
22 | 5
15 | 5
2  | 10
19 | 10
5  | 10

=min(A2:A6, if(B2:B6=5, 5)) ==> 15
=min(A2:A6, if(B2:B6=5, 10)) ==> 2

Given a large range (1000+ rows), it only includes in the calculation (which may be min/max/avg) the cells if another cell in the same row contains a particular value.

Can you share a doc with us? – Jacob Jan Tuinstra Feb 4 '13 at 18:20

I believe this is what you're looking for:


The full documentation for arrayformula is at Google Support. "This function allows the specification of a range (or multiple ranges of the same size) in functions that don't normally accept ranges."
