Need to calculate a result if a number is positive or negative.
One column is Budget, one is Adjusted Amount, and the last is Total. I am having trouble writing a formula for the Total column because the Adjusted Amount can be a negative or a positive. I can't figure out how to make this work. I appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks,

Please post a worksheet. A Word document cannot be worked upon.

Code:
=SUM($C11,$D11) In case you want the formula to return nothing, when one component is empty, then Code:
=IFERROR($C11 + $D11, "") I looked again at your Word image. Do you really want to be the formula result be bigger than Current Budget in case Adjusted Budget is negative? Very strange logic, but whatever! Code:
=SUM($C11) + ABS(SUM($D11))
