Can someone please help me? I want my cell to have the word FREE written in it BUT I also want that cell to represent 0.00$ when I add it to a formula. So my client see that it's free but at the same time I am able to calculate how much they truly have saved.

Thank you so much!!!

ok, so this easy solution just needs two columns. In one column(b) you have some have 1.00 and some have free.
In the next column(c), you test for the actual value with the GREAT AND WONDERFUL =IF().

So the next column would contain =IF(b1="FREE",0.00,b1)

See if that works for ya! Very simple!
