 Hi,If Balance is in cell A1 and Net income is in cell A2 then use this formula in another cell:`=IF(A1>=A2,"It's approved","It's not approved")`The following formula would ensure that you don't get an Approved/Not approved message if one of the required values has not been entered:`=IF(OR(A1="",A2=""),"Waiting for data",IF(A1>=A2,"It's approved","It's not approved"))`Regards

 hi,Just change this part of the formula:A1>=A2which is the value in cell A1 is greater than or equal to the value in cell A2toA1>=(A2*0.5)i.e. greater than or equal to half the value in cell A2Regards

 sns:I am assuming that you didn't just try Humar's suggestions, but you looked up the IF Function in the Excel Help files (or Googled it) so that you understand why the first one didn't work but the second one does.You have done that, right?
