IF function assigned
to cell B18
value of 0 assigned to cell
B18 because value in cell B13
(3113612.16) is less than the
value in cell B7 (3,500,000.00)
Figure 3–30
Why is the value 0 displayed in cell B18?
The value that Excel displays in cell B18 depends on the values assigned to cells B13, B2, and
B7. For example, if the value for July revenue in cell B13 is increased above 3,500,000.00,
then the IF function in cell B18 will cause Excel to display 200,000.00. If you change the sales
revenue for bonus in cell B7 from 3,500,000.00 to another number and the value in cell B13
is greater than or equal to the value in cell B7, it will change the results in cell B18 as well.
