# Conditional Formatting minimum value in Excel

Hello,

I have an excel spreadsheet (attached) which has multiple rows and columns of data.

I need help with the  following :

1) Calcluate the minimum value from each "set" of data. (which I have done already with a formula).

2) Require to apply conditional formatting to the matching minimum value in the table?

3) Specify which SET the date came from.

Any help greatly welcome.

For the conditional formatting you can select the whole range F5:AH102 and apply this formula for the minimum "A" value

=AND(F5=\$B5,F\$4="A")

and exactly the same for "B" except with "B" and C5 in the formula, i.e.

=AND(F5=\$C5,F\$4="B")

I don't quite get 3) Specify which SET the date came from.

Do you mean data or date? which value "A" or "B" or both?

This formula in D5 copied down will give you the set with the first match for "A"

=IFERROR(INDEX(F\$3:AH\$3,MATCH(1,INDEX((F5:AH5=B5)*(F\$4:AH\$4="A"),0),0)),"-")

see attached

Thanks Barry,

The conditional format is exactly what I was looking for.

With regards to (3) - it was data I mean't. I do require to specify the "SET" for both "A" and "B"

However, I have tried to create the minimum set for "B" but it returns 0 when I used it.

I tried this for "B", but did not work.

=IFERROR(INDEX(F\$3:AH\$3,MATCH(1,INDEX((F5:AH5=C5)*(F\$4:AH\$4="A"),0),0)),"-")

Could you advise?

many thanks

sorry should have read...

=IFERROR(INDEX(F\$3:AH\$3,MATCH(1,INDEX((F5:AH5=C5)*(F\$4:AH\$4="B"),0),0)),"-")

Because of the merged cells in row 3 you need this version for B to work

=IFERROR(INDEX(E\$3:AH\$3,MATCH(1,INDEX((F5:AH5=C5)*(F\$4:AH\$4="B"),0),0)),"-")
