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

Options

Hello.

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?

sidenote:

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, "")))
```

I hope you're well and safe!

It's because it's interpreted as text after the formula.

Try adding the VALUE function before the Total Amount parts in the formula.

Did that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe and have a fantastic week!

Best,

I'd be happy to take a quick look.

Can you maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s)? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, andree@workbold.com)

Hello Bassam, I have now invited you to a copy of the sheet. I have hidden the irrelevant columns. It is the column called "Rest ALA" the formula is in.
