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

no. TRUE shows the answer. FALSE hides the answer. The if function decides the answer

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

User
12/03/2018 - 03:54

or false =0

User
12/03/2018 - 03:55

Excelchat Expert
12/03/2018 - 04:00

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

User
