Hi - I need some help with Excel DMIN.  Here is a sample from the spreadsheet...

Column F is the Truck (row 12-15 in this example)
Column G is the Ticket # (row 12-15)

Basically I want to conditionally find out the minimum ticket number for each truck.  I can provide separate formulas on separate lines to do each truck I just need the template...

If DMIN isn't the correct function please let me know!

Thanks! Zack

.. into H12, then copy down
Change F and G to the columns you want to work with, and $12-$15 to the range of rows

Hi,

the formula would be

=DMIN(F1:G5,"Ticket",I1:I2)

I1 has the value "Truck" I2 has the value ="=T01R"

The required layout is in the attached file.

cheers, teylyn
