+ | ====== Minimum Value (Expression Function) ====== | ||

+ | ===== Purpose ===== | ||

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

+ | |||

+ | |||

+ | ===== Parameters ===== | ||

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

+ | |||

+ | ==== Values ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | Allowed Inputs: [[Field|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(${Contact - Age}) the result will be "34". If you want to compare all the values then you should use [[Expression Function - Minimum Field Value|MIN_FIELD]](${Contact - Age}) which would generate "32". | ||

+ | |||

+ | ===== Output ===== | ||

+ | |||

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

+ | |||

+ | ===== Example ===== | ||

+ | |||

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