Sometimes my question is the search for the smallest value, except for zero
The function min or small
But fail to it because it will come in short, a smallest value of zero
And we are forced to do the work of an array formula, such as in the picture
And the following suggestion
Argument optional functions
max min av
To neglected zero.
It will be a very, very useful
Greetings to you

Alternative could be =MINIFS(A2:A10,A2:A10,">0")

A slightly easier variation of Mohammed's formula for users without MINIFS. Like Mohammed's formula, this one also needs to be array entered.

I usually use:
The trick is that division by zero becomes an error and it is ignored by the option 6 of the AGGREGATE() function.
The second division return the value of the other numbers.
No need of Ctr + Shift + Enter.
AGGREGATE() is present on Excel 2010 and later versions.

I would usualy be lazy and add a new column with the formula =IF(A2=0,"",A2) then do a Min of that Column.
