    If Than formula returning 0 or calculates value

    Hi all,

    I am attempting to return a value to a cell with labor hours that cannot be less than .8, but can be 0 if 0 is entered.

    For instance..

    if a person enters a quantity of 0 in N22, P22 will say 0,
    but if N22 is entered as a real number (greater than 0), it will multiply the quantity (N22) times the hourly rate (E22).
    The returned value cannot be below .8 hours unless entered as 0.

    Here is my sorry attempt to make it work.
    =IF(E22*N22<.8,.8, IF(E22*N22=0,""),E22*N22)
    But it doesn't.

    Your help is most appreciated !

    Try this...

    =IF(N22=0,0,MAX(.8,E22*N22))

    Well... That solves the "0" issue but not the .8 minimum issue.
    I need to see a minimum value of .8 in P22 unless a 0 is entered.
    As it is, if we have .2 hours (E22) * a quantity of 1 (N22), it shows .2 which is below the minimum.

    Works! Thank you.
    I was unaware of the MAX function.
    Very cool.

    My bad, I forgot all about the .8 issue.
