# Nested IF Formula, Order Of Operations

Jan 16, 2009

I am trying to write a formula in 2003. The basic premise is below and I'm having problems getting all the senarios to work out.

Cells:
E20 = Calc'ed amount
E22 = Min amount (Sometimes equals zero - No Min)
E23 = Max amount (Sometimes equals zero - No Max)

=IF(AND(E22=0,E23=0),SUM(E20,E24),IF(AND(E220,E230),IF(AND(E20>E22,E20E23,SUM(E23,E24),IF(AND(E20E22),SUM(E20,E24),IF(AND(E20

## Order Of Operations Within A Formula

Aug 16, 2008

I have "bashed into shape" a formula that involves 2 sets of parenthesis. After progressing beyond "#REF! or #NAME errors, Excel's automated Help suggested to add a comma, and the formula functions as wanted, I thought I was "Smart".

Later, when saving the formula to my `Formula Workbook', "Order of Operations" crossed my mind. - I think this formula is backwards, but `Excel Help' only suggested the addition of a comma? Maybe the all inclusive parenthes allowed the order to be understood?

The Formula: =AVERAGE((E56:AH56),COUNTIF(E56:AH56,">0"))

Q: Shouldn't the COUNTIF occur before the AVERAGE? Did the extra Parenthis automate the order of Operation within the Parenthis?

## Defining Order Of Operations In Formula?

Mar 5, 2014

I have a formula that looks like this:

=12*NETWORKDAYS(C2,D2)-12+IF(NETWORKDAYS(D2,D2),MEDIAN(MOD(D2,1)*24,6,18),18)-MEDIAN(NETWORKDAYS(C2,C2)*MOD(C2,1)*24,6,18)

This formula calculated the time between two dates (Start date in C2, End Date in C3) between the hours of 06:00 and 18:00 on weekdays. This is so I can work out how long an incident has spend within the group at the time when our service should be operating.

I was given this formula by someone on this forum a while back and i was new to excel and formulas so I just took it at face value since it worked. Now I want to disect it so I can use it in other situations where similar calculations are needed. I want to try to break it up into easier to understand chunks to try to understand what it is I need to change in order to do these related calculations.

NETWORKDAYS(D2,D2)

Is this trying to distinguish if D2 is a weekday?

MOD(D2,1)*24 Is this not the same as (1-D2)*24
NETWORKDAYS(C2,C2)*MOD(C2,1) Is this not the same as: IF(weekday(C2)>5,(C2-1)*7,0)
IF(NETWORKDAYS(D2,D2),....,....) What is the comparison here? if NETWORKDAYS(D2,D2) = 0 or 1?

Is this equivalent?

=12*(
NETWORKDAYS(C2,D2)-12
+IF(NETWORKDAYS(D2,D2),MEDIAN(MOD(D2,1)*24,6,18),18)
-MEDIAN(NETWORKDAYS(C2,C2)*MOD(C2,1)*24,6,18)
)

## Concatenate Formula Nested Within IF Formula Is Not Producing Expected Results

Aug 24, 2014

I am trying to use a combination of Concatenate and IF formula to produce an email.

My input.

D4: First Name:
D5: Middle Name:
D6: Last Name:

D8: Organization:

Once all these are filled, I want the formula to produce a result like

FirstName.M.LastName@Organization.com

I have used the following formula.

[Code] .....

Problem is if there is a middle name the formula works fine, but in case where there is no middle name, it produces the following result.

FirstName..LastName@Organization.com

How do I remove the additional (.) in cases where there is no middle name.

## IF AND Nested Formula..?

Feb 20, 2009

I have a rather large formula that I put together and it's shown in column 'C' in the small sample file I have attached. I'd like to add one more criteria such that I avoid duplicate solutions in column 'C'. i.e. I only want the first occurrence of a group.

The formula works fine 'bucketing' the first entry. If I have an solution in C I want the formula to not give me another answer if the cell immediately above has an answer. In other words, rows 11 and 15 would be blank because rows 10 and 14 have an answer.

I've tried inserting another criteria in the AND statement, like ISBLANK for the cell above, but I can't get it to work. What am I doing wrong, OR is there a simpler solution?

## IF AND Nested Formula

Sep 17, 2009

=IF(C2="Windows",B2,IF((AND(A2=A3,C3="Windows")),B3,IF((AND(A3=A4,C4="Windows")),B4,IF((AND(A4=A5,C5="Windows")),B5,IF((AND(A5=A6,C6="Windows")),B6,IF((AND(A6=A7,C7="Windows")),B7,IF((AND(A7=A8,C8="Windows")),B8,"None")))))))Here is a link to the spreadsheet (D2 being the formula cell):

http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/8500/29072008.jpg

Basically, I am trying to put the columns data (if it has a porch, conservatory, windows) into one row for the contract number, as the dump which I have, is giving me seperate row's instead of one.

I am trying to get the formula to check if the contract number matches on the following row, and if it does, to check if the Product Description matches the header of that row (if it's a window, conservatory) if so, copy the quantity cell into D1, however, it's copying it even if the contract numbers do not match and I do not know where I am going wrong!!

## Add Two If Operations To VBA Function

Nov 13, 2012

I'm trying to take a vba function and add a second if clause. Here's the function:

VB:
Function getdes(DRng As Range, LURng As Range)
For Each ce In LURng
If ce.Value = DRn Then
holder = holder & ce.Offset(0, 2).Value & vbLf & ""
End If
Next ce
getdes = Left(holder, Len(holder) - 2)
End Function

I want to do something like:

VB:
Function getdes(DRng As Range, LURng As Range)
For Each ce In LURng
If ce.Value = DRn If ce.Offset (0,-02).Value = "y" Then
holder = holder & ce.Offset(0, 2).Value & vbLf & ""
End If
Next ce
getdes = Left(holder, Len(holder) - 2)
End Function

## Dates Operations

Jun 17, 2006

Does excel contain a format of : "number of months"?

Example : I have 3 cells
A1 : should contain the number of months (3 months)
A2 : should contain a date with this format (dd/mm/aaaa)
A3 : should contain A1+A2

## Need A Nested IF Formula Or Vlookup

Feb 20, 2009

Objective: To find out which customers order certain items and which customers dont order certain items. Many customers may order the same item eg customer A, B, C, D all order item "4567"

I have 2 worksheets.

Worksheet 1: Showing 30 item codes, item description and customers. Items in col A (A2:A31), description in col B (B2:B31) runnning down vertically. Customer name in cell 1 of all other columns running across horizontally, eg C1, D1, E1.... (C1:GF1). There are 186 customers. (A formula needs to start at C3 and dragged to GF3)

Worksheet 2: Raw data showing customers in column A and items in column B, There are 3,753 rows. Customer in column A are duplicated as the same customer may order a number of items so for eg

ABC PTY LTD 5671
ABC PTY LTD 5683
ABC PTY LTD 5692
ABC PTY LTD 5610
ABC PTY LTD 5611

Tried the below formula
=if(C1='S2'!A2),=if('S1'!A2='S2'!B2),"ordered","")

## Nested IF/OR Formula Or Vba Code Instead?

Apr 1, 2009

I have a spreadsheet which contains dates (amongst other info) of when a specific form was completed for a client. We have 'date windows' which these should fall into. I'm really struggling with how to work this one out and whether to use nested IF's or try some kind of code (although my vb knowledge kind of stops after recording a macro). Bascially I need to know for each 'date window' if the window has been met or missed. There may be up to 30 different dates per person (in my example sheet I have up to 9).

## Nested LENTH And RIGHT Formula

Aug 20, 2008

I currently use 3 different formulas to return a value I want. The first one is =LEN to return a value. I then want to decuct 1 from this length value so I just use =A2-1 in the next cell. I then use =right so my returned result is always the X right most characters -1. Is there a way I can nest all these formulas so I'm getting the desired result in just one cell?

## Nested IF Formula Not Working?

## Nested Formula - If And AND Combination

Jul 23, 2013

I have to write a formula which states the following:

if cells AA1,AB1 &AC1 = 0 then "Slow-Moving",
if of these cells AA1,AB1 &AC1 contains a number then "OK",
if cells, AA1,AB1,AC1,Z1,X1,Y1 all = 0 then "Non-Moving"

I believe an If and AND combination could work but its not working for me.

## Nested IF AND OR Formula Its Does Not Returned The Value 15

Nov 1, 2006

I have the following IF formula. It is working fine except the underlined part; it does not returned the value 15 ...

## Nested IF AND Formula With Blanks

Feb 4, 2008

I have searched the threads high and low, but no one seems to have come across this issue: My formula works fine untill it comes across a blank in Comparison!E16: =IF(AND(Comparison!E14=Comparison!E15,Comparison!E15=Comparison!E16),"",IF(AND(Comparison!E14=Comparison!E15,Comparison!E16=""),"") IF(AND(Comparison!E14<>Comparison!E15),Comparison!E14))

I am comparing cells from a previous sheet onto Comparison so that I can see where the discrepancies lie.

I want to:
return nothing if all the cells match;
return nothing if the first two match, but the third is blank;
return the value if the first cell isn't matching

keeping in mind that this is only for the top cell: Comparison!14 - I will then have to bring it down to 15 and 16

## Mathematical Range Operations In VBA

Jun 2, 2006

I'm attempting to conditionally alter specific column range values based on the variable 'tagrow'. From the example you can see that if 'tagrow' is 7 or 8, I want to divide the values in column C by 1000 and put them in column D. If tagrow was different, I will use another conditional statement with a different denominator.
In the current code, I get a type mismatch error. I have also tried dividing by an equal size column range full of 1000's, with no luck (matrix math anyone?). All I want to do is manipulate ranges!

'Initializing tagrow so we can test what train we are trending'
tagrow = Cells(12, 2).Value

'Only Propylene flows need adjustment in A and B trains, calculate everything'
If tagrow = 7 Or tagrow = 8 Then
Sheet2.Calculate
Range("D15:D115").Value = Range("C15:C115").Value / 1000
End If

## One Cell To Control 3 Operations

## Nested If Formula Claims There Are Too Many Arguments

Feb 11, 2013

But I've read that the new versions of excel allow for up to 64 nested if functions. I need to nest about 5 if functions, but after I write out the 3rd excel says there are too many arguments.

=IF(INDEX(vlookup!\$D\$2:\$D\$157,MATCH(\$F16,vlookup!\$B\$2:\$B\$157,0))="CPM", INDEX(vlookup!\$E\$2:\$E\$157,MATCH(\$F16,vlookup!\$B\$2:\$B\$157,0))*(J16/1000), IF(INDEX(vlookup!\$D\$2:\$D\$157,MATCH(\$F16,vlookup!\$B\$2:\$B\$157,0))="CPA", INDEX(vlookup!\$E\$2:\$E\$157,MATCH(\$F16,vlookup!\$B\$2:\$B\$157,0))*(L16), IF(INDEX(vlookup!\$D\$2:\$D\$157,MATCH(\$F16,vlookup!\$B\$2:\$B\$157,0))="dCPM", 0.04*(j3/1000))), IF(INDEX(vlookup!\$D\$2:\$D\$157,MATCH(\$F16,vlookup!\$B\$2:\$B\$157,0))="dCPC", 0.008*k3, "calc")

## Add Nested Formula To Cell On Another Worksheet

Sep 25, 2007

One of my macros is a tied to a worksheet_change. The macro runs and gives me the result that i want, however excel flips to the sheet that the sub is running for.

example:

Sheet1, Change the cell
excel flips the visible to sheet2
macro runs

Its kinda of annoying. I would like excel to stay on sheet1 where i am trying to finish data entry. I suspect it is how i have writen the macro. Any help at all on how to clean it up.. or a better way to write the same thing would be very appreciated.

Sub TermPlacement()

' Term_Placement Macro
' Uses the Value of Term to insert a formula repeatedly in a colum.

Dim sNFormula As String

## Add Nested Array Formula To Range

Oct 7, 2007

I have the following code that I am trying to distribute over an array. The best case scenario is that the code enters the text of the formula instead of the calculated value. When I tried to tweak a few things I couldn't even get the text to show up. This seems to only happen on the formulas which include If_Then statements. Other straight forward formulas such as "sum" etc... seem to go into place and calculate.

Sheets(1). Range("b3:s3").FormulaArrayR1C1 = _
"=IF(AND(MAX(2!R[2]C:R[6]C)>0,SUM(3!R[1]C:R[5]C)<0),MAX(2!R[2]C:R[6]C),"")"
