    Lightbulb distribute evenly among 3 customers

    Hello to everyone in the forum!

    I learned a lot seeing examples and reasoning that they used here on the forum, so I come to answer a question that I haven't been able to solve for months.

    I have a column of values ​​that I distribute among 3 clients, and I try to make the sum of each of the 3 as close as possible in the end.

    VALUES 1,2,3 CUSTOMER A CUSTOMER B CUSTOMER C
    2.00 1 2.00 0.00 0.00
    3.00 1 0.00 3.00 0.00
    8.00 2 4.00 0.00 4.00
    10.00 2 0.00 5.00 5.00
    15.00 3 5.00 5.00 5.00
    1.00 1 1.00 0.00 0.00

    sums 12.00 13.00 14.00



    Attached is the spreadsheet of an example that I managed to get distributed between 2, but I can't have any reasoning for it to count as 3 people to be distributed.

    Would anyone have a light to help me with this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum.

    There are instructions at the top of the page explaining how to attach your sample workbook.

    See how you get on with this:

    =IF($J4>=COLUMNS($K:K),$I4/$J4,0)

    or maybe this for your locale:

    =IF($J4>=COLUMNS($K:K);$I4/$J4;0)

    Thanks for the feedback.
    Unfortunately the conditional formula didn't work.

    I thought it would be simple to do a distribution of values ​​so that in the end the sum would be similar, I'm about to give up on so many options.
    I'll keep trying too, if I have any answer I'll let you know on the forum, or let's wait for further attempts
