Hi,

I need a formula that would add two cells, but if one of the cells returns a zero formula should return zero, but if not it should add the two cells.

example:

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 169pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=222><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 10pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 475" span=4 width=13><COL style="WIDTH: 11pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 512" width=14><COL style="WIDTH: 10pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 475" width=13><COL style="WIDTH: 46pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 2230" width=61><COL style="WIDTH: 62pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 2998" width=82><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 11.25pt" height=15><TD style="BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: #92d050;

Thanks, but when doing the formula this way. it returns a value error where E2 is not a zero.

Or,

=((A2<>0)*(E2<>0))*(A2+E2)
