DMIN and DMAX

DMIN and DMAX functions fall under Database functions in Microsoft Excel. These Excel functions are used to find specific information based on given criteria.

DMIN:

The DMIN function in Microsoft Excel returns the smallest number in a column of records in a list or database that matches conditions you specify.

Syntax for this Excel function is as followed: DMIN(database, field, criteria)

DMIN excel example

In the above example there is a table with the columns: Region, Sales Person and Sales (A5 to C12). We need to create a criteria table (A1 to C2). Based on the criteria table values, the formula in cell E2 will show various results. As we have entered ‘West’(cell A2) in the criteria table the formula in E2 will show the minimum sales in the West region (which is 32).

Similarly, if we give the criteria as Paul in B2 the total sales of Paul in all regions will be shown as output.
