How to calculate non-zero minimum value?

If the values are in A1:A10 then you can use an array formula which must be
entered with Ctrl+Shift+Enter, not just Enter

=MIN(IF(A1:A10<>0,A1:A10))

How to calculate non-zero minimum value?

Non-array option:

=SMALL(A1:A100,COUNTIF(A1:A100,0)+1)

How to calculate non-zero minimum value?

But I don't think that formula works correctly if there are negative
numbers?

You're absolutely right.

However, as I mentioned in a thread yesterday concerning averaging without
zeroes, the transition from positive to negative predisposes the presence of
zeroes.

Therefore, one can assume ... no 0's ... no negatives.

Though your point is well taken, since we never actually know how or where
our suggestions will be used.
