    I am trying to perform a calculation if the value of the IF-THEN function is true...

    =IF(A2=yes,B2*0.2,"") - - I tried it as: =IF(E2=yes,"F2*0.2","") also, but then my cell is not referenced anymore.

    Result: #NAME?

    Am I doing something wrong- or asking Excel to do something it can't?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forums. You need quotes around the yes since it is looking for text.
