Rich Text Formulas Using Numeric Ifs

    Hi Let me first start with thanks to everyone who posts in these forums I have learned so much from you. I do NOT code but I am real good a trial and error also google. So you have been a life saver.

    I am trying to use a rich text field to test conditions and give TEXT response.

    Like are these 2 things equal if not "BAD" if yes then check the next condition and so on.

    I think my problem is I am mixing numbers from calculated fields and summary. I have read about needing ToText, etc. 
    I get the same answer, TRUE even when it should be false

    I have tried so many permutations of this:
    Final Sale Price is a Numeric Formula that resolves currency rounded .01
    the PO fields are manual entry Numeric Currency Fields

    I have tried a ton of stuff but here are just some:
    If([Final Sale Price]-[PO Product Total]-[PO Install Total]-[PO Shipping Total]=0,"Good","Bad")

    If([Final Sale Price]-[PO Product Total]-[PO Install Total]-[PO Shipping Total]<>0,"Bad","Good")

    If(ToNumber([Final Sale Price]-[PO Product Total]-[PO Install Total]-[PO Shipping Total])=0,"Good","Bad")

    If(ToText([Final Sale Price]-[PO Product Total]-[PO Install Total]-[PO Shipping Total])<>"","Bad","Good")

    Thanks in advance for your help. Also if there is a complete guide Rich Text that would be awesome!!!

    I suspect that your intermediate calculations for the values like [Final sales price] etc are not being rounded to pennies and hence when you do those subtractions, there are small decimal remainders that are not exactly zero.

     A proper solution would be to check the source formuals of the values to round them to pennies but an expedient solution would be to round your test calculation

    If(Round(
    [Final Sale Price]-[PO Product Total]-[PO Install Total]-[PO Shipping Total], 0.01) =0,"Good","Bad")

    So Rounding the whole argument totally worked!!!! Thank you. That was actually one of my early thoughts so I added a .01 round to the formula in [Final Sale Price] and made sure the PO fields were currency 2 decimal places and treated blanks as Zero, which as I type this may be the issue. Since some are blank it might have tried 0 NOT 0.00. Either way it works now so thanks!
