#### MIN within range based on criteria

```I have two rows of dates, row A - "Start" date & row B - "Due" date.  In cell
A1 user can select a start date from the range in row A below.  There will be
multiple lines that have same "Start" date but the "Due" date could vary.  I
would like the MIN "Due" date value to appear in B1 based on the
cooresponding "Start" date user chooses in cell A1.
ie.
A1. user chooses start date /  B1. MIN value row B appears
A2. 12/1/5 B2. 12/4/5
A3. 12/2/5 B3. 12/6/5
A4. 12/3/5 B4. 12/6/5
A5. 12/3/5 B5. 12/5/5
if user chooses start date of 12/3/5 the MIN value within row B range is
12/5/5.  Can someone help me write a formula for B1.
Thanks, Steven

```

```One way .

Put in the formula bar for B1 and array-enter
(i.e. press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER):
=IF(A1="","",MIN(IF(A2:A100=A1,B2:B100)))

```If you would sort your data using column A as the primary key ascending and
column B as the secondary dey ascending, then the following in B1 will
do........(ranges based on your sample data, change as required)

=IF(AND(ISNUMBER(A1),A1>=MIN(A2:A5)),VLOOKUP(A1,A2:B5,2,FALSE),"No

```Max, I left one thing out... there are two cells for the user to set
criteria. A "Start" and "End" date.
A2:A100>=A1

Try this revised formula in C1 (array-entered as before):

Calendar Formatting Date Range problem
