#### Min value excluding 0 and another criteria

```Hi

I am trying to exclude zero plus add another criteria in calculating
the min value of a column.  I want the other criteria to be the text
value of a different column.  For instance column A has dog, cat,
fish, etc (up to 16 category types) and column B has age.  I am trying
to find min age for each category and not include zero.

I know this will find the min age of everything
=MIN(IF(\$G\$5:\$G\$40>0, \$G\$5:\$G\$40))

but i am at a lost for how to incoporate the other criteria

any suggestions would greatly be appreciated
```

Maybe...

=3DMIN(IF((\$G\$5:\$G\$40>0)*(\$A\$5:\$A\$40=3D"dog"), \$G\$5:\$G\$40))
for minimum of dog ages

entered as an array formula.
