I have a column of 365 daily values, non-negative integers, (for a

some cells (start and end row specified) to be zeroed if they are too large.
All values in column 1 to be copied to column 2 and if greater than
28 replaced by zero.
The help page gives a highly relevant IF function example that almost works.
Oh, it does; it does!
I just don't see how to write the value of the column 1 contents
rather than the cell reference. The modified example is
'=IF(A1:A13>28,0,"too small")'. at first I tried changing "too
small" to A1 but I get "A1" in column 2 rather than a value. I don't
see the syntax to get column 1's value rather than its reference.
Just as in any other use of a spreadsheet, if you want the value of
A1, you simply use A1 - without any quotes. If you are seeing the
text A1 instead, you must be putting "A1" - with the quotes - in your
formula. The example uses quotes around "too small" precisely because
that is a literal piece of text and not a reference. Also, in the
example, A1:A13 is a range of cells, but that is not what you need
here. Instead, enter in B1 the formula
and "fill" it down column B - by dragging the "fill handle" down the
column to B365. The references to A1 change automatically to A2, A3, and so on.
I trust this helps.
