##### New Member
I have a cell (A1) that will have a "G" or a "B" or be empty.
I have another cell (B1) that will have a number in it
I need a forumula that will populate a cell as follows:
if A1 = "G" add 2
if A1 = "B" subtract 2
if A1 = blank add 0
and then add B1

Thanks for your help.

### Excel Facts

What is =ROMAN(40) in Excel?
The Roman numeral for 40 is XL. Bill "MrExcel" Jelen's 40th book was called MrExcel XL.
=B1+2*(A1="G")-2*(A1="B")

Put this into cell C1

=IF(A1="G",SUM(B1 + 2),SUM(B1 - 2))

Book1
ABCD

Outstanding!!

Thanks all.
