Please note that I've used array formulas that need to be entered by using Ctrl+Shift+Enter (the brackets should appear after the enter).

Hello JP,

You can use "array formulas" for this, e.g. in E5 use this formula

=MAX(IF($A$3:$A$9=$D5,$B$3:$B$9))

confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER and copied to E6

Then identical in F5:G6 but with MIN/AVERAGE instead of MAX

see attached

Excellent!
One comment though. When I used the "IF" formula and used 0 for the false, the results were not always right.  Any thoughts.
Thanks,
JP

So I used the formula just as indicated without the zero, but I just thought it was good to point out the results.
