=If(Sum( "Question"

Posted by Jo on December 28, 2001 7:16 AM

Here is my formula.

=IF(SUM('Daily Hours'!L5)<50, SUM('Daily Hours'!L5),"")

I just want to know if I can change this somehow so that if the number is under 50 but over 40. I have tried several ways but can't seem to get it to work.

Try this:

=IF(SUM('Daily Hours'!L5)<50,IF(SUM('Daily Hours'!L5)<40,SUM('Daily Hours'!L5),""),"")

Out of curiosity, why did you use the word "SUM" in your formula? Did you mean to have L5 represent a range? If so:


Hope that helps out

hey my post went a bit screwy - oops

=IF(AND(SUM('Daily Hours'!L5)<50,'Daily Hours'!L5>40),SUM('Daily Hours'!L5),"")

Note: this will give the values: 41, 42, 43, 44, 45,...49 only! JSW

The reason I used SUM

I am taking the total from another sheet that is the sum of that row. Someone else taught me how to do this, so if it's wrong let me know the right way.

There is no need to use the sum, as adam suggest. The sum of one cell is the same as just the cell.

Another formula you could use is
='Daily Hours'!L5*('Daily Hours'!L5 > 40)*('Daily Hours'!L5 < 50)
