    Show zero value instead of a minus number

    Hi all....very firsy post, bit of a noob..
    I need help with a formula that will give me a 0 (zero) value
    cell A1+A2 sum in A3....no problem here
    Then in A4 I need a sum of another cell total lets say B1 taken away from sum in A3
    e.g A1=10
    A2=10
    sumA3=20 if cell B1 is more than 20 it will give a negative number
    I need A4 to show 0 or the positive number
    tried for hours any help please
