I have a formula that simply says

=IF(K2=0,J2,K2)

But it is returning 0 every time

I presume this is because the data is maybe Text Format but have tried changes to Number format.

Is there a solution?

The reason was that somehow during the running of the existing Macro it turned off Auto Calc.
