MIN

Returns the minimum value in a numeric dataset.

Sample Usage

MIN(A2:A100,B2:B100,4,26)

MIN(1,2,3,4,5,C6:C20)

Syntax

MIN(value1, [value2, ...])

  • value1 - The first value or range to consider when calculating the minimum value.

  • value2, ... - [ OPTIONAL ] - Additional values or ranges to consider when calculating the minimum value.

Notes

  • Although MIN is specified as taking a maximum of 30 arguments, Google Sheets supports an arbitrary number of arguments for this function.

  • Each value argument must be a cell, a number, or a range containing numbers. Cells without numbers or ranges are ignored. Entering text values will cause MIN to return the #VALUE! error. To allow text values, use MINA.
