# Thread: Finding the lowest value from repeated data

1. ## Finding the lowest value from repeated data

Hi everyone

I am new to this forum and very bad in excel. I have hit a roadblock right now. I have attached an excel file.

My issue is this:

I want to find the lowest value associated with a each codes (212, 223, 230, 242) corresponding to its value in the C column.

The resultant value of 212 is 3. The values for 223, 230, 242 should be 1, 3, 5 respectively. I would be very much obliged if someone can derive one formula with which I can get the required results.

2. Hi every one,

I don't know for some reason I am unable to edit my post. There is an update to my original post.

My issue is this:

I want to find the lowest value associated with a each codes (212, 223, 230, 242) corresponding to its value in the C column.

I have tried using this formula - =IF(COUNTIF(\$B\$2:B2,B2)>1,"",MIN(IF((\$B\$2:\$B\$17=B2 )*(\$C\$2:\$C\$17<>0),\$C\$2:\$C\$17)))

When using this formula, the value associated with Column B is changing as the cell changes, but the value of Column C doesn't change accordingly, when the equation is applied in the Column D. The result remains the same for the entire D column.

The resultant value of 212 is 3. The values for 223, 230, 242 should be 1, 3, 5 respectively. I would be very much obliged if someone can derive one formula with which I can get the required results.

The value of the C column should change (finding the lowest value)
