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

small large

To neglected zero.

It will be a very, very useful

Greetings to you

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

Yes. More exactly Excel 2016, not necessary from O365. Even more exactly Excel 2016, Excel Online, Excel for Android tablets, Excel Mobile, Excel for Android (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/MINIFS-function-6ca1ddaa-079b-4e74-80cc-72eef32e6599?ui=en-...).

On the other hand if new function appears when in Excel 2016 and later.

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

=MIN(IF(A2:A10*1=0,"",A2:A10))

I usually use:

=AGGREGATE(15,6,1/(1/A2:A10),ROW(A1))

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 generaly use a array formula for that like this one

=MIN(IF(A2:A10>0;A2:A10))

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