Hi There

I have the following formula =IF(BQ64,SUM(BO64+BQ64),BO64)

If there is a number in cell BQ64 then I want Cell BP64 to return the sum of cells BO64 & BQ64. If there is no number in cell BQ64 then I want Cell BP64 to return only the value in Cell BO64.

Seems simple enough and works ok except when there is no number in cell BQ64 then Cell BP64 is showing #value

Is my formula wrong?
I would appreciate someones help.

Thanks

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

You need a True/false test and do not need sum. try this instead

=IF(ISNUMBER(BQ64),BO64+BQ64,BO64)
