Hello,

I am looking for assitance with a formula and all help would really be appreciated.

I have 2 sheets sheet 1&2,on Sht1 is cells J2 & K2 where a name can be put in. On sht2-B2 i got a name eg "SAM".I have put a formula in Sht2-B3 that look at Sht1-J2 and if the name SAM appear it SUM J3:J28*1000%.FORMULA used:=IF('Sheet1'!J2=Sheet2!B2,1,SUM('Sheet1'!J3:J28)*1000%). I am trying to double it up to say look in SHt1-J2 and K2 and if "SAM" appear in Sht1-K2 SUM K2:K28*1000% and when "SAM" is in Sht1-J2 SUM J3:J28*1000%.

Thanks
Gouws
