    Can a sum ignore negative values?

    Is there a way that I can add 2 cells together but whereby it will ignore a cell if the number is a negative result?

    For example, in cell A1 I have the number 88, in B1 I have -60. In C1, rather than it return a result of 28 (as it is doing) I would want it to return the number 88

    Something like =SUMIF(A1:A10,">=0")
