The **Minimum Value** function (MIN_VALUE) takes inputs of any number of values, and returns the number with the smallest value.

The **Minimum Value** function has an unlimited number of parameters:

Allowed Inputs: field value or numbers

The builder can enter as many inputs into the **Minimum Value** function as they want. Either use the use the Query Builder to choose a field that contains a number or use type a value to enter a number. When using the wizard to build the function after each new value is entered a new blank option will allow the builder to keep adding more values. When using a query to find a field value if more than one value is found then only the first value is used. So if you have a query that searches for Contact records and it would find the values “34” and “32” and it is used in MIN_VALUE(${Contact - Age}) the result will be “34”. If you want to compare all the values then you should use MIN_FIELD(${Contact - Age}) which would generate “32”.

The output of the **Minimum Value** function is a number that is the smallest value found.

For example MIN_VALUE(-20,-5,0,3) would result in -20.
