Using simple multiply and divide formulas. In some cases the resulting product is a negative number. In those cases I want to display "0" instead of the negative value.

For instance: If 3 * 5 = 15 then I want to display 15.
But if -3 * 5 = -15 then I want to display 0.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Rick

Hi Rick

=IF(3*-5<0,0,3*-5<0)

Are you actually multiplying the contents of two cells?

=IF(A1*B1<0,0,A1*B1)
