Hi all,

I have created a worksheet.

http://jonnyb.homeip.net/databasedemo/package8.xls

I wish to use two formulas based upon if a column contains an instance of data. If the cell in the row is empty then formula A is to be used, else if the cell in the row contains data, formula B is to be used.

I think I could do this using Conditional Formatting but I already am using 3 conditional formulas within the rows of my worksheet. And the ADD button is grayed out.

How do I add the new formulas while still keeping the old ones?

The new formulas are to be entered in the cells of column 'ORIGINAL AMOUNT BORROWED'.

They are

(A)

(Selling Price - deposit) = Balance) = AMOUNT BORROWED

(B)

(Selling Price - deposit) = Balance)

(Balance - MGFV) = Amount Borrowed

As u can see, if the MGFV column contains a figure then the (B) calculation should be used else (A).

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Jon.
 

Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

Can you not just use a straight IF function?
That is:
=IF(MGFV<>0,formula B,formula A)
