Mark the checkbox to activate the otherwise row field. In the Otherwise row field, enter the row number for the row in which you would like the specified amount(s) to print if the original condition is not met.

In the Condition group box, specify the conditions under which you would like the specified range of rows to print. For example, if you want the CostofSales account group to print if it is greater than or equal to the Base account group. In the first field, choose Cost of sales from the drop-down list. In the middle field choose › =. In the last field choose Base from the drop-down list. You may also enter amounts or accounts into either field in the Condition box.
