# Help with simple IF THEN formula

 Balance carried forward from 2018 21.00 MONTH HOURS EARNED HOURS USED HOURS USED HOURS USED HOURS USED BALANCE January 1.75 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 22.75 February 1.75 2.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 22.50 March 1.75 0.00 4.00 0.00 0.00 20.25 April 1.75 5.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 17.00

 Balance carried forward from 2018 21 MONTH HOURS EARNED HOURS USED HOURS USED HOURS USED HOURS USED BALANCE January 1.75 0 0 0 0 =SUM((G5+B7)-SUM(C7:F7)) February 1.75 2 0 0 0 =SUM(G7+B8)-SUM(C8:F8) March 1.75 0 4 0 0 =SUM(G8+B9)-SUM(C9:F9) April 1.75 5 0 0 0 =SUM(G9+B10)-SUM(C10:F10)

Each month 1.75 hours are earned, each week time is subtracted from the previous month’s balance.  The maximum number of hours that can be accumulated is 21.

I figured out that  =IF(G7>=21,"21")  will have it return 21 if the balance is over 21 hours.  I can’t seem to figure out how to have it show actual number of hours when they are less than 21.  I probably need to add a then statement but I can’t get it added without an error.

@Tlang2010 , you may use something like

=MIN(SUM(<hours>,21)

# Re: Help with simple IF THEN formula

Specifically, the formula in G7 is:
=MIN(21,
SUM(G5,B7)-SUM(C7:F7))
