# HELP ASAP with Formula please

I feel like I'm so very close but keep getting an error. Basically, the error is in the 1st part of the formula below in red.  What I added the /2 and then added the AD15 at the end i get the error

Basically I need  x minus y = the total divided by 2 + y then the total divided by 2 (this is the whole formula but it will be broken up into 2 different columns

Hi, could you elaborate further this with you actual cell references: "Basically I need  x minus y = the total divided by 2 + y then the total divided by 2 (this is the whole formula but it will be broken up into 2 different columns"

I recommend that you use parenthesis in your formulation/explanation. You could also help us help you by attaching a screenshot or a sample document without sensitive data.

It seems like there is a redundancy in the formula where you add AD15 and subtract AD15. This could be the cause of the error, without being sure if it actually is.

=IF(\$AB15="rolled-in", \$X15/2 - \$AD15, IF(\$AB15="actual invoiced", \$X15/2 + \$AD15, IF(\$AB15="none (virtual)", \$X15/2, 0)))
