I can't get this formula to work, any ideas?

=IF(E1-(A1*-E1)<C1,C1,0)

a1 is a percentage that the user enters
c1=\$48.00
e1=\$50.00

### Excel Facts

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.
What do you want the formula to do??

oops left stuff out

=IF(E1-(A1*-E1)<C1,C1,0)

if e1 times 20% is greater than c1 then c1 otherwise 0

a1 is where user enters a percentage

=IF(E1-(A1*-E1)<c1,c1,0)

heres the one I have

wow, my reply keeps leaving part of the formula out? wonder why

Is this what you need?

Code:
``=IF(E1*A1>C1,C1,0)``

=IF(E1-(A1*-E1)<C1,C1,0

Here it is

wow, my reply keeps leaving part of the formula out? wonder why

Try putting your formula in as code. Select your formula and then click on the "Code" button.

oops same problem

the ending is

,c1,c1,0)

Code:
``=IF(E1-(A1*-E1),c1,c1,0)``
