If the column contains no numerical data, MIN returns blanks.
Empty cells, logical values, and text are ignored. If you want to include logical values and text representations of numbers in a reference as part of the calculation, use the MINA function.

The following example returns the smallest value from a column that contains dates and times, TransactionDate. This formula therefore returns the date that is earliest.
