    Simple Formula Error???

    In the attached example I am using this formula to return "0.00" if a cell B5's calculated value equals "0".
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    When cell B5 is indeed "0" my formulated cell doesn't return "0.00" as intended. Where am I off here?

    Thanks for your help. David

    Remove the quote marks from your 0's.

    "0" and "0.00" are not numbers, they're just text strings.
