negative value


H

huhnjoe

I have created a soreadsheet with a field called 'Less 15% Reserve'.
want it to calculate the 15% amount based only if a positive numbe
appears in the cell used for calculation, not if that amount is
negative amount. How do I create the formula that would leave the cel
at a '0' if in fact the calculator cell is a negative number?

Please help!

Thanks & Happy New Year

Jo

Joe,

Try this formula

=(A1>0)*A1*15%

Joe,

Simplest answer

= A1*0.85

zero * 0.85 is still zero
100% - 15% is 85%

85% of -100 is -85
So while it may be simple, it isn't the solution asked for I don't believe.
