    IF Function Not Working Correctly(Regarding the > symbol)

    I am trying to create a function that will return the word YES if a discount is applicable and the word NO if a discount is not applicable.

    Winter -- Trip A, F6:

    Is G6 formatted as a number... select it (or the column) and go to Data|Text to columns and click Finish... Then make sure the cell(s) are formatted as General or Number...You probably don't need SUM(G6:G6) though and it should probably just be =IF(G6>4,"YES","NO")
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    It is returning with FALSE. Is there a reason why it isn't returning with NO?

    You have the same formula repeated 3 times in that cell... expand the formula bar to see, and remove 2 of them.

    Thank you! I am usually pretty good with different software applications. However, excel is another world to me when it comes to using formulas as I hardly use it.
