I have typed the following in
n20 =if(o20=1,"yes","No")
when I type 1 into o20
n20 becomes Yes
the formula disappears it is not the only cell to have this problem
any suggestions?

That is the normal and intended behavior. The formula is placed in n20 and
the formula says, in English, if the entry in o20 is a 1, then display "yes"
in the cell in which the formula is located, which is n20 in your case. If
o20 is not a 1, display "No". The formula has not gone anywhere, it is
still in the cell. What is in the cell and what is displayed in the cell
are not necessarily the same thing. As in your case. HTH Otto

Thanks for the reply, but the formular is missing when you look into/edit the
cell

Hi guys
I have included the previous thread
all is good with the formular
a1=if(b1=1,"Yes","No")
b1=1
when I change the value in B1 to 0
the contents (using edit F2) become
text "No"

Are you now saying that all is good or do you still have the situation that
the formula disappears? Formulas don't just disappear. If your formula is,
in fact, disappearing, you have some code in that file that is doing this.

Any chance you have a "helpful" macro butting in?
I'd open excel in safe mode
windows start button|Run
excel /safe
file|open your workbook
test it out.
If the formula doesn't get converted to values, then I'd look for macros that
are doing this.

No Macros
Checked against/via alt&F11
I am running some forms which load results of 1 or 0 to the "o" cells
I have no Data "ControlSource" with cell referances
another thing when I copy a formular into the "effected cell" it instantly
changes to Text?
