Changing currency on a column where the "if" formula has been used.


I am making a sheet where I use an "if" formula:

=IF([Responsible]@row = "Anders Larsen"; [Total Amount]@row; "") + IF([Responsible no.2]@row = "Anders Larsen"; [Total Amount]@row; "")

This Gives me number, however I am unable to change that number into a currency. why is that, and/or how can I fix it?


I am aware that I could use the "sumifs" formula. however, it is very important that there aren't any false values (by false I mean values = 0), and "sumif" automatically writes in 0 when the criteria's aren't met. That is why the "if" ends with "", so it remains blank if it isn't above zero.

thank you in advance.

    Glad we got it working! (Me & Bassam)

    Here's the formula for everyone.

    =IF(VALUE(IF([Project PTA]@row = "Anders Larsen", [Total Amount]@row, "") + 
    IF([Project PTA Secondary]@row = "Anders Larsen", [Total Amount]@row, "")) = 0, "", 
    VALUE(IF([Project PTA]@row = "Anders Larsen", [Total Amount]@row, "") + 
    IF([Project PTA Secondary]@row = "Anders Larsen", [Total Amount]@row, "")))
