Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:46
can you explain your requirement here?
User 12/03/2018 - 03:46
i have an if function that displays 2 different answers for Yes/No and i have a checkbox. I want the check box to show and hide that answer
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:48
so this is yes and no using if function
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:48
now show me what exactly you require?
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:50
so you have already done this?
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:50
using if on check box and getting the required values
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:50
what else is required?
User 12/03/2018 - 03:50
i can't get the TRUE bit to work
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:51
if formula is not correct
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:52
when it is true you get F12*G12
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:52
when false it gives I12
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:52
but then again you have used if
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:52
which is not correct
User 12/03/2018 - 03:53
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:53
let me know what you require, i will build the formula
User 12/03/2018 - 03:53
my if function is correct
User 12/03/2018 - 03:54
but i want c15 to display the answer when true and hide the answer when false
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 03:54
ok
User 12/03/2018 - 03:54
or false =0
User 12/03/2018 - 03:55
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 04:00
see D17
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 04:00
instead of TRUE and FLASE i have used yes and No
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 04:00
C17 displays values
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 04:00
nd D17 shows values only when A19 is Yes
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 04:00

Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 04:00

User 12/03/2018 - 04:01
i need c17 to show/hide
User 12/03/2018 - 04:02
if a17 is true then c17 displays 5000. if a17 is false the c17 =0
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 04:02
i have built that
Excelchat Expert 12/03/2018 - 04:02
