Hi Denysptwn,
The formula in this post helps to find the smallest value excluding zero.
If you want to include zero in the result, just use this formula: =MIN(\$A\$1:\$C\$7)

Hi Javid,
You may receive an error message when you sort a range that contains merged cells in Excel. There is no directly way to handle this issue. You need to manually unmerge the merged cells first to sort all cells. You can following the methods in the following article. Hope I can help. Thank you for your comment.

Hi dear Crystal,
Good to see your comment again :)
Many Thanks for your useful information and suggestion.
After facing many problems, I decided to change my strategy and the first step was to remove the merged cells and replace them with new cells and new numbers.
I'm making some changes, including the one I mentioned.
I hope I will face less problems from now on.
Thanks again with love,
Have a nice times.
