This answer was rated:


I like to make a conditional value.
amount= If the phrase "late fee" appears in a field, even if it is combined with other words.

C1=if B1 has phrase "late fee"
B1 entry would be: July payment and late fee
In most instances B1 would be July Paymnet, then C1 would be zero.

note the fields that I want to edit with conditional phrase are highlighted in red


So C13 and B24

And what should it do if it sees Late Fee?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

it should take the amount(usually $25) from that row that has the term late fee, and add it up. This should be done for all rows B: 18-B42 and add up all amounts on that row for column C:18-C42
then add and enter total at B13.

I want the program to seak late fees listed and add them up to see all the total of late fees charged for all months.

so to clarify

If rows b18-42 have late fee in it.

It will add up the amount on the C row (the same row number) and total it for B13?

So B13 has a total of all rows that has the word Late Fee in B in it?
