Why won't this formula work.

I have a multi worksheet document.

If the number on 'Spending Account Worksheet, Cell D3 = 1 I want my spreadsheet to automatically copy the value from  'Spending Account Worksheet, Cell L3 into another worksheet.

Can you help me, as far as I can see this formula should work but at the moment it just copies the number 0 even though the value is cell D3 = 1 and the value in cell L3 is 13.50

Since your cell values are numbers, 1 and 0 are numbers and should not be in quotes (treated as text)
So try the same formula without the quotes around the numbers
=IF('Spending Account'!$D$3=1,'Spending Account'!L3,0)
