## Remove minimum from a group of numbers #### Mike Klausing28 days ago  #### Mark Shnier (YQC)28 days ago #### Mike Klausing25 days ago   #### Mike Klausing23 days ago  • #### 1.  Remove minimum from a group of numbers

Posted 28 days ago
I have 10 formula numeric Fields being calculated into number [total kicker cost].
Kicker Quantity 1st, Kicker Quantity 2nd...Kicker Quantity 10th

I need to add up all of these fields together except for the lowest/smallest value.
So if the first 3 fields have the values 5, 1,  7 I need it to give me the response of 12.

Is there a way I can calculate this field

Try

Sum ( [field1], ..., [field10]) - Min( [field1], ..., [field10])

Sum([field 1], [field 2],...[field 10])
-
Min(([field 1], [field 2],...[field 10])

but what if there is only one or two values??

That formula should work except in the case where fields 8, 9, and 10 etc are blank or zero. I need to have something that subtracts the Min of those values 1-10 that are also greater than 0

Thank you,

Try this Mike:

```Sum([Field1],[Field2],[Field3],[Field4])-

Min(If([Field1]>0,[Field1],null),
If([Field2]>0,[Field2],null),
If([Field3]>0,[Field3],null),
If([Field4]>0,[Field4],null))​```

Here is what it returns; works with blanks too: ------------------------------

Here is the formula I used:

([Total Kicker Count (1-10)]*[Kicker - Total]) -Min(If([Kicker cost 1st]>0,[Kicker cost 1st],0),
If([Kicker Cost 2nd]>0,[Kicker Cost 2nd],0),
If([Kicker Cost 3rd]>0,[Kicker Cost 3rd],0),
If([Kicker Cost 4th]>0,[Kicker Cost 4th],0),
If([Kicker Cost 5th]>0,[Kicker Cost 5th],0),
If([Kicker Cost 6th]>0,[Kicker Cost 6th],0),
If([Kicker Cost 7th]>0,[Kicker Cost 7th],0),
If([Kicker Cost 8th]>0,[Kicker Cost 8th],0),
If([Kicker Cost 9th]>0,[Kicker Cost 9th],0),
If([Kicker Cost 10th]>0,[Kicker Cost 10th],0))

This still gives me the full cost and isnt subtracting the minimum cost

Use this Mike:

```Sum([Kicker cost 1st],[Kicker Cost 2nd],[Kicker Cost 3rd],[Kicker Cost 4th],[Kicker Cost 5th],[Kicker Cost 6th],[Kicker Cost 7th],[Kicker Cost 8th],[Kicker Cost 9th],[Kicker Cost 10th])-

Min(If([Kicker cost 1st]>0,[Kicker cost 1st],null),
If([Kicker Cost 2nd]>0,[Kicker Cost 2nd],null),
If([Kicker Cost 3rd]>0,[Kicker Cost 3rd],null),
If([Kicker Cost 4th]>0,[Kicker Cost 4th],null),
If([Kicker Cost 5th]>0,[Kicker Cost 5th],null),
If([Kicker Cost 6th]>0,[Kicker Cost 6th],null),
If([Kicker Cost 7th]>0,[Kicker Cost 7th],null),
If([Kicker Cost 8th]>0,[Kicker Cost 8th],null),
If([Kicker Cost 9th]>0,[Kicker Cost 9th],null),
If([Kicker Cost 10th]>0,[Kicker Cost 10th],null))​``` This works on all of the scenarios I have tested so far... ------------------------------
