Hello,

If cell P5 is greater than Q5, I need cell R5 to equal Q5. If P5 is less than Q5, I need cell R5 to equal P5.

Any help would be appreciated.

:)

Hi Driaswann,

Strange title.
Sounds to me like you want an IF formula:
=IF(P5>Q5,Q5,IF(P5<Q5,P5,""))

Put this formula in R5.
If P5 equals Q5 then R5 is empty.

Best regards,
Trowa

Hi driaswann,

You can use nested IFs to get the desired results. Please put the following formula in R5:

=IF(P5>Q5,Q5,IF(P5<Q5,P5,""))
