I am getting "#VALUE!"


Everytime values in column X are higher or equal than column Y I want to qualify it as "GOOD" , if not would  be "BAD" , however there would be an excepction when column X equal ZERO ( "NO ALLOWANCE" )

=IF(X56 = 0,"NO ALLOWANCE",IF(X56>=W56,"GOOD","BAD"))

This will test cell X56. If it is zero (or blank) it will return NO ALLOWANCE. If it is not blank, but greater than (or equal to) W56, it will return GOOD, otherwise it will return BAD.

I presume this is what you were looking to accomplish.
