    formula help - specific text changes value of a different cell

    Hello,
    My first post, so bear with me if I am not explaining clearly.

    I am looking for a formula that would change the value of a cell, based on the text in a different cell.
    So if cell I4 reads "Booked" it will change the value of cell F4 to read "$0".

    FYI cell F4 already has this formula in it: =SUM(B4:E4)


    thank you for any assistance
    Mike D

    Try this:

    =IF(I4="Booked",0,SUM(B4:E4))

    You must have data validation set.
