I mainly need a IF statement to work in the background and display in a specific cell if it is true.

I’m using Excel 2010! Thanks in advance!


EX: =IF(E5="Admin","-", &This is where i need help, I can't have a false statement because i need to edit the cell with a number&)
This place still exists?

derp derp :beer:

=IF(E5="admin", "-", "")


Would show a blank cell if E5 was empty and - if admin was written. What I don't get is why you can't have a false statement???

I need to freely edit the cell. Numbers will be entered in the cell where the IF statement is.
This place still exists?

Why can't you simply have:

=IF(E5="admin", "-", "numbers go here")

?

What is the purpose of this spreadsheet?
