    Question How do I use either entered data (cell 1) or established data (cell 2) in 3rd cell ?

    I download Inventory Data from a company data base. I'll then inventory the racks of stock. Rather than looking through my sheets for the SKU item, I'd like to simply record the SKU's as I go (and any change in Quantity if needed) from the shelves into my Tablet. I know what quantities I should have per Company Data Base. I have a routine to show a Under-Even-Over of My Count vs Data Base. How do I get Excel to use either my Shelf Quantity Entered -or if no entry is made for quantity- use the Data Base Quantity in 'Column I' so 'Column J' shows my +/-/= status ?

    What I seem to know: Cells with formulas and a retrieved '0' value keep my various ideas from working.
    Have tried Helper Columns.
    Columns can be re-arranged to facilitate a working sheet if needed.

    Help !! How should I structure a Formula to calculate 'Column J' correctly ???? (Sample Workbook Attached)

    Thank You in Advance !

    So if a value appears in Col B, then use it, otherwise use the value in G? And if it's 0, you want to use the value in G?
    =IF(B2=0, G2, IF(B2="", G2,B2))

    substitute commas with semi-colons if your region settings requires
