Hi,

I am trying to use a Multiple IF formula to help me give the values if the following conditions are met, but it gives me a #Value error.

Could you please help me figure out the correct formula for this.

Thank you

=IF(AND(B2034<>B2035),H2035+I2035-J2035,IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Beginning Balance",C2035)),(D2035+I2035-J2035),IF(AND(MONTH(F2035)<>MONTH(F2034)),(I2035-J2035),(K2034+I2035-J2035))))

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

i would think the problem is the <>. It reads to as if you want the formula to do that function if B2034 is less or greater than B2034. I would try it with an if function of B2034=B2035 and then have the if false part read what you want it to do if it doesn't meet that condition.

Thank you, that helped.

It turns out formula does not work, if specifically cell "H" is blank. If cells I and J are blank, it still reads and displays the results.

Could you please help me on how to convert blank cells to number format, so that the formula can read this. I dot not want to manually write "0" in columns where there was no data previously.



The error is probably coming from one of the cells that you are using in the formula.

Are their formula in the cells, in e.g. cell H? If so i'm guessing they return "" instead of a zero, try changing the "" to 0.

That is amazingly sharp and accurate, that's exactly what I had in the cell. :)

I have replaced the "" with a 0 and converted the number to accounting series, so that it returns a "-" wherever there is 0.

Thank you so much.
