I am New to this so I will try to explain myself.
I have an IF function and want it to Return a 0 if false and a cell value if true. I get it to work BUT it Returns the CELL Number NOT the value in the cell.
What have I done wrong.

=IF((H16<0);"k16";"") This gives me k16 NOT 1000 which is the value in the cell.

It is 2010 Version

Thanks:(

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

Welcome to the forum.

Remove the " from the formula -

=IF((H16<0);k16;"")
