I want to divide the topcel of a column with the lowest value I find between this top cell and the cell above the cell with this formula.
Could you give me the formula?

Kind regards

Eric

I'm assuming the TopCell is Row 2.
I'm assuming your formula is is D10

To reference Column A, the the formula would be
$A$2/Min($A$3:$A10)
0

Dear Bullwinkle,

I forgot to mention that not all the cells in this region are filled.
The lowest value must be a number higher then 0

Thanks for the quick respond

This probably isn't the most efficient but will work.

=A2/MIN(IF($A$2:$A10>0,$A$3:$A10,1000))

Array Formula, so used Shift+Enter after copying the formula, and it should appear inside curly braces.

Actually, you don't need the false part of the if. So the following works, with Shift+Enter.
=A2/MIN(IF($A$2:$A10>0,$A$3:$A10))
