# Help Calculated Field Not working.

• ### Question

• =SUM(IF([Jan 2013 Budget]>=0,[Jan 2013 Budget],0),0)

In this instance Jan 2013 Budget is equal to 100. but my calculated field still displays \$0.00.

Is this not the right way to do a sumIf

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

• Hi,

I would suggest to use =TEXT([Jan 2013 Budget]+[Jan 2013 LE]). I think this should solve your problem.

• Looks correct to me. Can you try to isolate the issue by just using the IF condition without the SUM and see if it is bringing back the right number?

• Hi!

Hi, just for test propouse, can you try this?

`=SUMIF([Jan 2013 Budget],">=0",[Jan 2013 Budget])`

• Your formula is correct but looks like the column "[Jan 2013 Budget]" is not a Number field (may be Single line of text or other type) and all mathematical operations are performed only on number fields. Hope this helps!

• To start off Joao that did not work. Also both my Jan 2013 Budget column is a Currency and so is my calculated field. Also I switched both to a number and still nothing. When I do the If statement it brings in the correct number. So the =sum is the problem... But I am not sure what that problem is.

Edit: So I also tried just doing =SUM([Jan 2013 Budget], [Jan 2013 LE])

Both those columns have the # 100 and it gives me zero. but when I do =([Jan 2013 Budget]+[Jan 2013 LE])

it gives me 200...

Does it matter that Jan 2013 Budget and Jan 2013 LE are both Calculated columns as well.. I don't think it should
