# IF Formula - Not Working

Why isn't this working? The yellow fields should be returning the numbers in the column "2023 Beginning Balance- Char" because they are UNDER 5600 (per my formula). But they are reading the 700 and 798.56 as OVER 5600 and returninng 5600.

=IF([2023 Beginning Balance - Char]12 >= "5,600.00", "\$5,600.00", IF([2023 Beginning Balance - Char]12 < "5,600.00", [2023 Beginning Balance - Char]@row)

• When using in a formula you just enter the number (no \$ sign or quotations).

=IF([2023 Beginning Balance - Char]12 >= 5600, 5600, IF([2023 Beginning Balance - Char]12 < 5600, [2023 Beginning Balance - Char]@row))

• When using in a formula you just enter the number (no \$ sign or quotations).

=IF([2023 Beginning Balance - Char]12 >= 5600, 5600, IF([2023 Beginning Balance - Char]12 < 5600, [2023 Beginning Balance - Char]@row))

• I did that originally and it made no difference.

• I lied. I removed the quotations and that fixed it. Thanks!
