    Cell A decides weather Cell B is +44 or not but also keep the original number

    Hi again,

    So Cell A is a drop down List with two choices "extra" or "not extra". Cell B tells me what i need to cut the steel at but if it is "Extra" it needs to be +44 if Cell A says "not extra" Cell B just give me the normal cut length.

    depends how is cell b populated?
    if you manually have to type it in...suggest cell C to calculate B + (output of A)
    if it draws from something else then you can simply add calculation to additionally add

    Currently Cell B is populated with a Cell reference of L10 giving me at this very moment 1100mm, but if Cell A says "Extra" it has to be 1144mm

    So in B1:

    =IF(A1="Extra","1114mm",L10)

    It worked for the "Extra" part of it but when I changed to "Not Extra" B1 says False.
