MATH COMPUTAION
Hi All:
This sounds simple but it's driving me nuts. A1 contains the number of months for a construction project. (manual input) A2 looks @ A1 and calculates the number of months greater than 24 but less than 36. A3 looks at A1 and calculates the number of months greater than 36 but less than 48. A4 calculates the number of months greater than 48. I need formulas for A2 & A3. Can someone please help me. thanks in advance. Tom

Tom I need to claify that if the project is longer than 48 months, then A2 @ A3 would both show 12.

Ist example is that A1 = 28 Then A2 would = 4 A3 would = 0 A4 would = 0 2nd example is that A1 = 39 Then A2 would = 12 A3 would = 3 A4 would = 0 3rd example is that A1 = 52 Then A2 would = 12 A3 would = 12 A4 would = 4 To sum it up, A1 = "total monthes" This number is keyed in by hand. A2 shows the number of months over 24 BUT not more than 12. (between 24 & 36) See 1st example. A3 shows the number of months over 36 BUT not more than 12. (between 36 & 48) See 2nd example. A4 shows the number of ALL months over 48.

That can mean almost anything: computer crash; program crash; error message; wrong answer expressed in a variety of ways; etc. And the troubleshooting process is different depending on what "doesn't work" really means. Lots of people respond that way, and it is usually a completely useless response. Using joeu's formulas, and your inputs, I get the same answers as the one's you posted here as being correct. Most likely there is a problem with your data, or with your expression of the problem.

Most likely there is a problem with your data, or with your expression of the problem. I apologize. You're formulas worked perfectly. I was so excited to see a response that I inadvertently used the same cell location as was in my example. (I used A1 for simplicity) When I typed your formula in my sheet I used A1. In reality it should have been C10. Again, I apologize. A thousand thanks!
