I have one cell (lets say it is cell Z20) in which I need several things evaluated and different things done based upon the answer. This is based upon dollar amounts in columns N and L. Both columns COULD have 0 in them, but BOTH columns will never have an amount over 0 (one column will always be 0)
Amount in cell Z15 is a subtotal of column Z.
If N20 is not 0 then multiply N20 by 15% (result in Z20) ---- I had =IF(n20<>0,N20*15%, " ")
If L20 is not 0, then amount in cell Z15 minus L20 (result in Z20) --- I had =IF(L20<>0,Z15-L20, " ")
If the result if false in both tests do nothing (leave blank) or put a zero in it.
My full statment was this: =IF(N20<>0,(N20*15%),IF(L20<>0,(Z15-L20)," "))
My suggested formula is premised on your declaration of a fact that whenever L20 is 0, N20 is not 0, and whenever N20 is 0, L20 is not 0. If my suggested formula returns a result you didn’t expect, it presupposes that you may have to modify your premise. The logic of any formula always depends upon the premise you declare.
