User 03/09/2018 - 08:55
but i need it to show OFF if above 0%
Excelchat Expert 03/09/2018 - 08:56
I understand if you can't show me your original data but I can work with what you have told me. So, it's alright.

I will show an example of what you need to do in the preview window.
Excelchat Expert 03/09/2018 - 08:57
Let's assume your data is in column A.
Excelchat Expert 03/09/2018 - 08:57
Are you able to see what I wrote in column A?
User 03/09/2018 - 08:58
yes
Excelchat Expert 03/09/2018 - 08:58
=IF(A1>0,"YES","NO") This is the formula I wrote in column B.
Excelchat Expert 03/09/2018 - 08:59
Makes sense?
User 03/09/2018 - 08:59
yes just trying it now
Excelchat Expert 03/09/2018 - 08:59
The syntax Of IF function is =IF(logical-test,value-if-true,value-if-false)
Excelchat Expert 03/09/2018 - 09:01
So, In the above formula our logical test is A1>0, when this test is TRUE the formula will show "YES", otherwise "NO". Since you want to see "OFF" if the logical test is true, you need to write =IF(A1>0,"OFF","ON")
