    Need help adding two cells until one reaches a certain number

    Hi All,

    I have done some extensive searching for a formula to help with my dilemma but to no avail.
    Given I have found several answers on this board it seems to be the best place to ask around.

    I have two cells adding into a third, I would like them to keep adding until one of the cells reaches a certain number then for the third to stop adding.

    Ex. B1 = A1 + A2, until A1 reaches 12 then B1 stops taking from A1.
    A1: 5, is changed to 7, is changed to 12, is changed to 15
    A2: 5
    B1: 10, would be changed to 12, would be changed to 17, would stay at 17


    Any help will be very appreciated.

    Thank you,
