Limit formula result to maximum value (100)
Select a cell which you will place the formula at, type this formula =MIN(100,(SUM(A5:A10))), A5:A10 is the cell range you will sum up, and press Enter. Now, if the summation is greater than 100, it will display 100, if not, display the summation.
|Summation is greater than 100, show 100|
|Summation is smaller than 100, show summation|
Limit formula result to minimum value (20)
Select a cell which you place the formula at, type this =MaX(20,(SUM(A5:A10))), A5:A10 is the cell range you will sum up, and press Enter. Now, if the summation is smaller than 20, it will display 20; if not, display the summation.
