I just can't quite work out how to make this formula to work.
On Sheet2 I currently have a formula in cell E19 which is =if(sum(E9:E17)=8,9,sum(E9:E17))
However I need to extend that formula to say:
If the checkbox is ticked on sheet1 and Cells B8:B17 are blank on sheet 2 then use the value in sheet1 Cell B4 otherwise sum the values in sheet2 E9:E17 but if that value =8 then make it 9.
So something like this:
=If(and(checkbox1="True",isblank(B8:B17),Sheet1!B4, sum(E9:E17)=8,9,sum(E9:E17))
