Excel Formula to find Earliest Date

Hi All,

I was wondering if you could help me with an excel formula.

I have 3 columns of data.

1) Column 1 = Device Name
2) Column 2 = Application Name
3) Column 3 = Application Installation Date


I would like a formula to return the Device Name and the Earliest Application Installation Date on that Device.  So form the attached file the formula should return 3 rows

Device 1 05/05/2005
Device 2 03/03/2003
Device 3 16/02/2001

I have been playing around with the small function and that will return the lowest date in a range. However I need  the lowest date for each device and I cant seem to tie that formula to each device as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
