# MINIFS function

Returns the minimum of the values of cells in a range that meets multiple criteria in multiple ranges.

This function is available since LibreOffice 5.2

### Syntax

MINIFS(Func_Range; Range1; Criterion1 [ ; Range2; Criterion2 [;...]]))

Func_Range â required argument. A range of cells, a name of a named range or a label of a column or a row containing values for calculating the minimum.

Criterion1 â required argument. A string expression representing a logical condition or a cell reference to such string expression. The expression can contain text, numbers, regular expressions or wildcards (if enabled in calculation options).

Range2 â Optional. Range2 and all the following mean the same as Range1.

Criterion2 â Optional. Criterion2 and all the following mean the same as Criterion1.

Func_Range and Range1, Range2... must have the same size, otherwise the function returns err:502 - Invalid argument.

The logical relation between criteria can be defined as logical AND (conjunction). In other words, if and only if all given criteria are met, a value from the corresponding cell of the given Func_Range is taken into calculation.

The function can have up to 255 arguments, meaning that you can specify 127 criteria ranges and criteria for them.

If a cell contains TRUE, it is treated as 1, if a cell contains FALSE â as 0 (zero).

This function is part of the Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) standard Version 1.2. (ISO/IEC 26300:2-2015)

### Example

#### Consider the following table

 A B C 1 Product Name Sales Revenue 2 pencil 20 65 3 pen 35 85 4 notebook 20 190 5 book 17 180 6 pencil-case not not

In all examples below, ranges for calculation contain the row #6, which is ignored because it contains text.

#### Simple usage

=MINIFS(B2:B6;B2:B6;"<35")

Calculates the minimum of values of the range B2:B6 that are lower than or equal to 20. Returns 17.

=MINIFS(C2:C6;B2:B6;">=20";C2:C6;">90")

Calculates the minimum of values of the range C2:C6 that are lower than 90 and correspond to cells of the B2:B6 range with values greater than or equal to 20. Returns 190.

#### Using regular expressions and nested functions

=MINIFS(C2:C6;B2:B6;">"&MIN(B2:B6);B2:B6;"<"&MAX(B2:B6))

Calculates the minimum of values of the range C2:C6 that correspond to all values of the range B2:B6 except its minimum and minimum. Returns 65.

=MINIFS(C2:C6;A2:A6;".*book";B2:B6;"<="&MAX(B2:B6))

Calculates the minimum of values of the range C2:C6 that correspond to all cells of the A2:A6 range starting with "pen" and to all cells of the B2:B6 range except its minimum. Returns 180.

#### Reference to a cell as a criterion

If you need to change a criterion easily, you may want to specify it in a separate cell and use a reference to this cell in the condition of the MINIFS function. For example, the above function can be rewritten as follows:

=MINIFS(C2:C6;A2:A6;".*"&E2;B2:B6;"<"&MAX(B2:B6))

If E2 = "book", the function returns 180, because the reference to the cell is substituted with its content.
