Using IF Function
I am trying to create a formula that will sum a list of cells and if the
total exceeds a certain number it will return the number that is above that number. ie:sum = 48, I want the formula to show 8. thanks

Using IF Function
=IF(SUM(B16:B19)48,SUM(B16:B19)48,SUM(B16:B19))
Substitute your range of cells as required. "pjb" wrote: I am trying to create a formula that will sum a list of cells and if the total exceeds a certain number it will return the number that is above that number. ie:sum = 48, I want the formula to show 8. thanks

Using IF Function
Don't understand where the 8 comes from.
8 is not above 48 unless you mean the cell above the SUM cell is 8? =MIN(SUM(A1:A10),8) entered in A11 Or =MIN(SUM(A1:A8),A10) Gord Dibben MS Excel MVP On Tue, 2 Jun 2009 08:04:01 0700, pjb wrote: I am trying to create a formula that will sum a list of cells and if the total exceeds a certain number it will return the number that is above that number. ie:sum = 48, I want the formula to show 8. thanks

Glad you picked up on the typo<g
=MIN(SUM(A1:A10),A10) is what I meant to post. Gord On Tue, 2 Jun 2009 08:38:06 0700, pjb wrote: the second works, thank you!
