 Ed[_7_] external usenet poster First recorded activity by ExcelBanter: Jul 2009 Posts: 5 A formula not working as the result of a previous formula?

Formula is =IF(AND(E133="Liss", ISNUMBER(G133)), F133, "0"), where
F133 is the result of its own formula. So far I'm just getting "0"
for this, even though otherwise the criteria for the formula are met.
Is that because F133 is the result of its own formula? If so, is
there anything I can do about it?

You cannot have a formula and a value in the same cell..

No, it's not because F133 is a formula; that should work OK.
Use Evaluate Formula to find out how Excel evaluates the formula. I think
before Excel2007 it was in ToolsFormula auditing, in Excel2007 you'll have
to select the Formulas tab.

Excel evaluates this formula as G133 not being a number, which is
confusing because that cell plainly is a number and I even reformatted
the whole column to be numbers, just to be safe. Any thoughts?

Changing the format wouldn't change the content from text to number, as
formatting affects only the display, not the contents.

Use =ISNUMBER(G133) and =ISTEXT(G133) to check what you've got. If it looks
like a number but is being regarded as text, you may have spaces or
non-breaking spaces or other non-printing characters in the cell with your
number.

That seems to have been it: there seems to have been a hidden or
invisble space or something that was making the cell read as non-
number. Any ideas on how to input numbers in to the G column and not
