min() used on an array will only work if the array contains only numbers.

You could convert the array values from dates to "seconds" and then use min.
But even easier would be to use the sort feature; you'll need the dates 
to be (for example) one per line,

and then do

then "line 1 of tXData" is the min(), and "line -1 of tXData" is the max()
