Find the lowest data in a table

  • Hi there,

    I have a table with several columns and rows.

    The columns are divided in two groups:

    North: 1 to 4 & 9 to 12

    South: 5 to 8

    I need a code which report, on second sheet, the name (or names in case of same value) who has the lower numer for first group (North) and the the name who has the lower numer for second group (South).

    In case is the same name (same row) of north, for south group I need the second lowest number.

    I attach an example with the expected result

    Power Query is a free AddIn for Excel 2010 and 2013, and is built-in functionality from Excel 2016 onwards (where it is referred to as "Get & Transform Data").

    It is a powerful yet simple way of getting, changing and using data from a broad variety of sources, creating steps which may be easily repeated and refreshed. I strongly recommend learning how to use Power Query - it's among the most powerful functionalities of Excel.
