Hello
Excelchat Expert 25/07/2018 - 03:29
i think your problem was if the value in E5 is equal in B5, value of F5 would be the value of C5 is in it?
Excelchat Expert 25/07/2018 - 03:29
i already put an example
Excelchat Expert 25/07/2018 - 03:29
wherein B5 & E5 has an equal value of "Ball"
Excelchat Expert 25/07/2018 - 03:30
thats why if the value of f5 now was the value in C5
Excelchat Expert 25/07/2018 - 03:31
so if we change the value of b5,
Excelchat Expert 25/07/2018 - 03:31
F5 would be blank, since B5 & E5 will be not similar now
Excelchat Expert 25/07/2018 - 03:32
i only use the formula IF function for this
Excelchat Expert 25/07/2018 - 03:32
=if(E5=B5,C5,"")
Excelchat Expert 25/07/2018 - 03:32
here it is
Excelchat Expert 25/07/2018 - 03:33
so if E5 & B5 are equal, value would be C5 else it will be blank
Excelchat Expert 25/07/2018 - 03:33
i think this was the solution that you want
