    I am using this formula:

    IF(G1="O",FVSCHEDULE(B1,{-.0314772}),B1)

    G1 does have "O"
    B1 = 7.74

    What I get is the number 0. I can't find any error. What am I missing?

    If I just do a FVSCHEDULE(B1,{-.0314772}) it calculates properly.

    I am using Excel 2000 on Windows XP Home Edition

    If G1 is a number 0, then you don't put quotes around the 0 in the if function.

    Quotes are normally used for text.

    Thanks for the response. I actually had a circular reference in a related cell. I was able to fix.

    Thats fine, as long as you have got it sorted. Circular references are a pain, if you don't pick them up.
