i need L2 value, k2 is a mixture of positives and negatives. If K2 is negative, i want L2 to assume the figure in I2, if it's positive L2 should leave figure in K@ unchange
User 02/07/2018 - 02:23
**K2 unchanged**
Excelchat Expert 02/07/2018 - 02:24
=if(K2<0,I2,K2)
Excelchat Expert 02/07/2018 - 02:24
Please use this in L2 cell.
Excelchat Expert 02/07/2018 - 02:24
When K2 is negative, L2 will read I2 value.
Excelchat Expert 02/07/2018 - 02:25
If K2 is positive, then L2=K2.
