    formula to limit maximum value

    hi guys,

    i have a simple spreadsheet where i'm totalling a few values thru a formula. it's similar to this:

    =D13*F13

    i'm trying to create a funcion that says if d13 * f13 >= 300, i want the value to stay at 300 max and at the same time, if d13 * f13 < 300, i want the total to remain whatever it is.

    i have been able to create both of these formulas successfully by themselves but i can't combine them. is this possible?

    any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Re: quick formula help

    To comply with forum rules, you should change your thread title to something like: formula to limit maximum value ... or we'll both be in trouble with the Mods.

    Maybe:

    =MIN(D13*F13,300)
