I am trying to set up a sales sheet where where I have 2 payment options that has different fee's for the payments. But I have having issues trying to get the total of the payment minus sales tax to sum up. Here is what I really need to happen: I currently have this: =IF(L41,SUM(D41-L41),"") which is for only one payment option. But I can't get =IF(L42,SUM(D42-L42), (F42-L42)) to work. It only shows me the negative tax which is in L42. I have tried other formulas but have gotten to the point that I don't know what I have tried or haven't. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm creating a spreadsheet totalling maths scores for my class and the times completed in minutes and seconds. Ive put all values in 3 separate columns. Ive managed to sum the scores and times of 4 tests over the week in separate columns. The data ive got I have to upload onto software where seconds cannot go over 59. Is there a way of formatting the seconds column that if the total of seconds exceeds 59, it resets to 0 and adds 1 to minutes columns of if it exceeds 119 it adds two etc?

Is there a function or macro that can load different cell blocks dependent on another, outside cell. Ex. If A1 is Yes, C1, D1, and E1 are highlighted red with a black border outline and with sum functions. If A1 is No, C1, D1, and E1 are highlight blue with no outline and with if functions.

I need to use the SUM and SUMPRODUCT functions, and solver to find the optimal solution
