With your permission, if I may recommend, provide more information.

You'll get a quicker and more accurate answer, and those who want to help don't have to invest time guessing the problem.

What I recommend: Always inform about your Excel version, operating system, storage medium/hard drive, OneDrive, Sharepoint, etc.).

If possible, add a file (without sensitive data) and use this file to describe your project step by step, or add photos with the appropriate description.

Don't forget that not every Excel user has a clue about every job and that what you see he can't see.

@Golions21 Let's say "the cell" you want to include in a formula is in A1 and its value should not exceed 86, the relevant portion of such formula would look like this:

MAX( 86, A1)


So, as an example, you could build a formula like:


=25% * MAX(86,A1)


which will calculate 25% of the value in A1 where that value is maximised at 86.
