This is the current formula I am using;

IF({3P Impressions}>0,{Booked Revenue}-({Booked Revenue}{3P Pacing}),{Booked Revenue}-({Booked Revenue}{1P Pacing}))

But when the value returned is negative, I’d like to display “0.” The format of the field is currency.

Hi @Kristin_Cox,

I’m not sure which part of your `IF()` you want to return no less than `\$0`, so I’ll do it on both parts and you can fix as needed. You’ll want to use the `MAX()` function for this:

``````IF(
{3P Impressions} > 0,
MAX({Booked Revenue} - ({Booked Revenue} * {3P Pacing}), 0),
MAX({Booked Revenue} - ({Booked Revenue} * {1P Pacing}), 0)
)
``````

`MAX()` will make it so that if the result of your equation is less than `0`, it will return `0` instead.

This works. Thank you so much!
