Excel - IF Function Problem - Expert Solution

Question description:
This user has given permission to use the problem statement for this blog.

Hello, I am looking for an inventory formula where one column states my max then next states how many I have available and the last is how many I need to order. I would like for the "available" column automatically transfer the amount I need in the reorder column. For example, if I say I need a max of 10 in stock but I only have 4 available I would like for the reorder column to automatically change to 6.
