```I figured it out (at least it seems to pass the initial litmus test.  May
have been a problem in my original explanation, which had me confused.
Here is how I did it.  Took the file home, which I normally don't like to
do as work is work and home is home.  Went into my office, turned on the
AC cooled down and cleared my head (that was the important part).  Then I
knew Linda had started me on the right track, but I got to the point where
I couldn't even think about it.  With a clear head and cool body
(temperature wise) I came up with this formula based on the formula Linda
provided (Thank You).

=IF(E2+(E2*0.2)<P2,(E2+(E2*0.2)),IF(E2-(E2*0.2)>P2,(E2-(E2*0.2)),""))

It seems to work fine with initial testing.
Thanks

Thanks:
It works great if it is 20% high or 20% low but if it is in-between, it is
Here is my formula which I had to make a minor change to get it to
calculate properly.

=IF(P2+(P2*0.2)>E2,(E2+(E2*0.2)),IF(P2-(P2*0.2)<E2,(E2-(E2*0.2)),""))

If I can get it to understand that area between 20% high and 20% low so it
doesn't return a figure it will be perfect.
Thanks Again

Hi Don.....I'm doing this from my head without Excel so it *might* need a
parentheses or two...but I think it's ok, LOL

Try this:

=IF(P2+(P2*0.2)>E2,(P2+(E2*0.2)),IF(P2-(P2*0.2)<E2,(P2-(E2*0.2)),""))

I can complete part of the formula but I can't get the whole thing to
work, so I am looking for assistance, here is what I need:

IF P2+20%>E2 THEN P2=E2+20%
OR
IF P2-20%<E2 THEN P2=E2-20%
ELSE THERE IS NO RESULT IF IT MEETS NEITHER CONDITION.

Thanks
Don
