    Have a formula on one sheet looking at another. Need to get it to look at a third sheet if # is 0. Here's the formula.
    ='R:\STATUS\[GENERATE.XLS]generatetion95'!$G$9
    I would like it to look at sheet1 if G9 is 0. Thanks Phil C.

    =IF('R:\STATUS\[GENERATE.XLS]generatetion95'!$G$9<>0,R:\STATUS\[GENERATE.XLS]generatetion95'!$G$9,sheet1!CELLREF)

    or

    =IF('R:\STATUS\[GENERATE.XLS]generatetion95'!$G$9=0,sheet1!CELLREF,'R:\STATUS\[GENERATE.XLS]generatetion95'!$G$9)

    where CELLREF is the cell you would like it to reference on sheet1.

    IF statements have 3 parts.

    the argument (=zero or <>zero)
    what to do if true
    what to do if false

    Hope this helps.
