## How to limit formula result to maximum or minimum value in Excel?

Here are some cells needed to be entered, and now I want to use a formula to sum up the cells but limit the result to a maximum value such as 100. In other words, if the summation is smaller than 100, display the summation, otherwise display 100.

Limit formula result to a maximum or minimum value

#### Limit formula result to a maximum or minimum value

To handle this task, you only need to apply the Max or Min function in Excel.

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.

 Summation is smalller than 20, show 20 Summation is greater than 20, show summation

Hi! This instruction is awesome. Thank you! I have a further question: if the summation exceeds the maximum, I would like to return the value 0 instead of the maximum. Is there a way to do that?
Thank you!

I am trying to limit the amount in a cell to a max of 24. I am calculating the number of hours worked divided by 30 with this formula, for example
=F5/K1

F5 is the specific employees hours worked,
and K1 is a hidden cell with a value of 30
(because for every 30 hours they work, they earn 1 hour of sick time) but the max limit is 24 hours in a year and i don't know how to limit the total to a max of 24 hours earnable.
Any help?

Hi, V Rogers, try this formula: =MIN(1,SUM(E:E)/K1)
in the formula, E:E is the column that contains employees' work hours, you can change it as you need., the result cell (F5) needed to be formatted as 37:30:55 in the Format Cells dialog. See screenshot:

Good day,

does anyone have an idea how this works on multiplication formulas?

A1*A20= 100, but min value shall be 120

Is there a formula that always shows at least 120?
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
Hi, use formula like this: =MAX(120,(A1*A20))

For anyone looking to have a min AND a max, use the following formula:

=MIN(+20,MAX(-20,SUM(A5:A10)))

This will limit the calculated sum to between -20 and +20, or any number of your choosing.

Hola, estoy intentando aplicar la fórmula pero no me funciona. En mi caso el valor min es en horas, no se si es por eso que me da error.

Lo que quiero hacer es una celda que repita el valor de la celda adyacente limitando a un máximo de 8 horas. A ver si me pueden ayudar, gracias.
