Nested IF Function - Condition Is Based On Two Values Within A Cell

Mar 10, 2014

I am working on creating a simple Excel Database of an Engineering Tool Room Inventory for work. However I can not seem to get one particular 'NESTED IF Function' to do what I want it to do. (In advance warning, I may be going down the wrong route and might have used the wrong Formula in Excel but from my understanding the 'IF' function seemed the most plausible.

Issue: All I would like to do is for a NESTED IF Function to be able to say this:

1. When a user inputs data into one column, for example 'Column A', with the following data: 4" Square
2. Then the neighbouring column, for example 'Column B', would have a NESTED IF Function.
3. Which would output a logical response, "A, B, C, D, E, F etc...", depending on what is written in Column A.
If 'Column A' - 4" Square, Then 'Column B' - A
If 'Column A' - 5" Square, Then 'Column B' - B
& So on...
But the NESTED IF Function should only put a logical response if there is certain values within the cell, for example:
User types a value into 'Column A' which contain - 4 & S, Then 'Column B' - A
User types a value into 'Column B' which contain - 5 & S, Then 'Column B' - B
& So on...

Currently to do the above function, I have utilised the following Excel NESTED IF Function:

[Code] .....

& The following happens:
1. User inputs data into 'Column A'
2. The NESTED IF Function then provides an automatic response.
3. However it relies on the data being inputted without the ' " (Quotation Symbol)'
4. & With me defining the exact phrase that should be typed into the cell, for example, "4" Square"

Other: I have attached an example worksheet of the NESTED IF Function in practice, with two tables. One showing what is happening with the code above and one table showing what I would like to happen but with no function.

Nested IF (index And Match): Calculate A Charge In Cell K15 Based On Values In B9 And C10 Referencing The Table I8:R9

Jan 21, 2010

I'm trying to hone a quoting tool to generate an amount based on a given range and minimum charges for specified subsects of the range. If you reference the attachment I'm trying to calculate a charge in cell K15 based on values in B9 and C10 referencing the table I8:R9. What I cant figure out is how to create a minimum charge of 50 for J8:P9 (points A-G) and a charge of 95 for Q8:R9 (points H-I).

Sum Of 3rd Column Values Based On Nested If On 2 Other Columns

Apr 28, 2007

I have three columns as follows:

ItemsWeekEnding Count
a14/7/2007 10
a34/7/2007 3
a14/14/2007 11
a14/7/2007 5

Filling Empty Cell Value Based On Function Values

May 15, 2014

Here i am having functional code for checking 4 cells data based on conditions

1) if more than 2 cells is empty means the entire row has to delete-how to make it?

2) i want to fill the empty value in relevant cell at the time of execution of function i.e.

for example cell1 cell2 cell3 cell4 cell5
value value blank cell blank cell result(coming based on my condition but the empty cells or not filling)

how to fill the empty cell

I am attaching my file for reference : if_custom.xls‎

Return Values Of Adjacent Cells When Condition Is True Omitting Values Where Condition Is False?

Jan 15, 2014

Here's a simplified example:

ColA
ColB
ColC

Row1
A
Y
A

Row2
B
N
D

[Code] .........

I'm looking to return the values in column A adjacent to the cells in Column B equal to "Y". The kicker has been returning only the cells where the condition is true. Column C displays the desired behavior.

The closest I've been able to get is with a simple IF statement but I'm pretty sure the answer is a far cry away from there and likely requires an array formula. I'd prefer not to use VLOOKUP or OFFSET but will if the alternative is very complex.

Insert Row And Values Based Upon Condition

Apr 4, 2014

I need a macro I can run that will insert a row whenever Column A changes (from PPN A to PPN B to PPN C, etc.) and that will insert string values into the Cells as follows:

In all cases, the insert cell values into column A (PPN) will be the value from the previous cell and column B (CPN) will be 'LABOR'

Here's image of before and desired after:

Before:

PPNCPN
4AQ02SLAG
4AQ02SAND
4AQ02CHIPS
4AQ02PORTLAND
4AQ02AUTUMN BLEND
4AQ03SLAG
4AQ03SAND
4AQ03CHIPS
4AQ03PORTLAND

Sum Values In Column Based On Condition In Another

Oct 7, 2007

II want to sum the values under 'amount' column only if the corresponding value under 'Balance' column is "Paid"

NameAmount Start Date End Date No.of DaysInteresetBalance
Sat1 250 1-Aug-07 20-Aug-07 19 - "paid"
Sat2 550 4-Aug-07 20-Aug-07 16 -
Sat3 250 10-Aug-07 20-Aug-07 10 - "paid"
Sat4 450 6-Aug-07 20-Aug-07 14 -

Total PAIDAMOUNT(B1:B4)

For the above, the sum value should be 500. I have written the following function to calculate the same. On uncommenting the line 'paid = CStr(paidvar)' the value is displayed as '#VALUE!'. On uncommenting all commented lines, the value is displayed as 'Paid'.

Function PAIDAMOUNT(amountRange As Range) As Variant
Dim count As Long
Dim paidvar As Variant
Dim paid As String
Application.Volatile True
PAIDAMOUNT = 0
For count = 1 To amountRange.Cells.count
paidvar = amountRange.Offset(count - 1, 7 - amountRange.Column).Value
'paid = CStr(paidvar).................

Sum Values From Multiple Worksheets Based On A Condition

Feb 11, 2010

I'm trying to sum across multiple worksheets based on a simple condition. I have a time sheet with a worksheet for each week (52 worksheets). I've gone back and added a column to code the type of work done, types 1 - 17. I want to sum the hours of each type across all worksheets. This is what I have that doesn't work:

Find & Replace Values Based On Condition

Aug 21, 2007

I have a simple problem I am trying to find a set a values on a column and what to replace once found with the first 5 most left characters. Example:

in column A I can have text and numbers; the numbers that I want to find are in the following format xy:zw / xy:zw on each case the values can be from 0 to 9 so this is tons of posible combinations, I been trying to use **:** ? **:** but I don't get none. This is what I am doing

Set target = Sheets("Sheet1"). Range("A1:A9000")
For Each cell In target
If cell.Value = "**:** ? **:**" Then cell.Value = "00.00"
Next cell

A example would be 02:47 / 03:15 the next row could have 03:15 / 04:09
and so on however I could have text in some rows. In reality I would like to find and replace the cell.value with the Left 5 characters if the cell contains ANY value maching that format. Text in that column will never have that format combination

Multiple Condition Nested Logical Functions

Feb 17, 2014

I am having trouble evaluating two conditions with nested logical operators to produce the output I need.

For example Condition 1 has 5 choices (A,B,C,D,E) and Condition 2 has 3 choices (a,b,c).

Breaking it down,
[Condition 1] option "A" always applies and should give "Yes" (No matter [condition 2], "A" always gives "Yes")
[Condition 2] option "c" always applies and should give "Yes" (No matter [condition 1], "c" always gives "Yes")

[Condition 1] option "D" never applies and should give "No" (No matter [condition 2], "D" always gives "No")

[Condition 1] options "C" and "B" only apply if [condition 2] is "b" (if so, the answer is "Yes")

What I need is the equivalent of:

if ((([condition 1] == A) || ([Condition 2] == c)) || (([condition 1] == B || C) && ([condition 2] == b)), "Yes", "No")

VLOOKUP Multiple Values Then Give Answer Based On Condition?

Feb 6, 2014

I have been struggling with this formula for ages and have finally given up. What I would like to do is to do a lookup on the concatenated values of Province, Department and Initiative No, which has mutiple values in the status of milestone column, and then give the answer based on a condition.

The condition for this example should be, that if the returned status / or statuses of the initiative is all 1, then the value should be 1, if it's all 2, then the value should be 2, and so on.....but if the values returned from the status of the initiative is a combination of 1,2 or 3, then it should give me the answer 2. If 4 is part of the comination of values returned, then the value should be 4.

Zero - 0 should be excluded from the formula as it is part of planned values and not actual.

IF Function With A Condition From Reference Cell?

Feb 19, 2014

I'm trying to write a formula that would filter data from one column based on condition entered in a cell. This one works great with single numbers or text in a reference cell:

=IF((a2=C\$3);a2;"") copied down the column

but if I try to filter all numbers greater than 2 (I eneter ">"&2 in cell c3) it doesnt work. Is it possible with if formula or should I use something else?

Sumif Function Condition Cell Value

Nov 24, 2009

I have a worksheet where two columns of data are written. In another worksheet I have a list of data in one column. In column next to it (so the rows are the same) I am trying to write a list of sumif formula, where the range is first column of the first worksheet, condition is a value of the cell next to where I am writing the sumif equation (list of data) and the sumrange is the second colummn in the first worksheet. I can't get it. I tried with --- "C" & i --- but I get an error saying expected:end of statement. It goes like that:

Nested IF Function Error (entered Too Many Arguments For This Function)

Cell Formatting - Red Text If Cell Matches Certain Condition Based On Another Cell

Sep 24, 2013

I have one column that contains a monetary amount (column AQ) , and another that contains text reading either "inflows" or "outflows" (column AC)

When AC says "inflows", AQ should be positive, and when AC says "Outflows", AQ should be negative.

I need the text in column AQ (the monetary amount) to become red when the the opposite is true.

i.e. When AQ is negative and AC says "Inflows", AQ should become red. And when AQ is positive and AC says "Outflows", AQ should become red.

How To Have One Cell Copy To Another Based On Condition

Mar 10, 2014

I'm trying to set it up so that if a particular cell has any data in it, the contents of a different cell get sent to another. I want the no data/data to serve as a trigger.

As an example, if I put anything into cell A3, I want the contents of cell A1 to copy to H1. I'd also like it to be dynamic so that if I put something into cell B3, the contents of B1 get copied to H1, etc.

Autofill Based On Cell Condition

May 20, 2014

I have a workbook sheet change condition that, when triggered runs the following code (amongst others).

[Code] ......

What I would like is to amend the above (possibly in a loop?) so that it skips the rows in which the value "New" features in range F17:F190.

So basically Autofill as per the code but leave the values in the cells of the range in which New features in range F17:F190

Coloring Cell Based On Condition

Jan 18, 2009

I had an report and the rows of the report needs to be colored based on another cell value. My layout looks like this:

A1B1C1D1AVG
1011121330
14151617100
18192021400

For each cell, i need to compare the value of cell with that value in AVG coloumn and if condition is met, cell should be colored. Eg : If first cell value under A1 is Less than 0.2 * AVG of first row then color of the cell A2 should be red. After coloring the entire rows, then i should check and color the header row based on the color of Rows.

I tried first one, i,e coloring the rows based on conditional formatting and then written VB code to compare the color of rows and colored the header row. But the color index used in conditional formatting and the code are mismatching and the desired output is not coming.So decided to write code for coloring the rows cell.

VBA Combine Cell Based On Condition

Jan 1, 2010

I have so data I am trying to combine based on count value of investment on Col A. If it appears more than once on col A then I want the col B values on col D. I have macro that works but I need make sure if Col B have any TRAC and TRL1 then I want to add that on Col D. For example so Col D1 would be EURX, TRL1 at 83.50, FTID and Col D5 would be TRAC at 87.88, Markit. Below is the macro.

Nested If Function

Dec 1, 2005

I am trying to create a nested IF function (has 5 IF statements), however,
every time I put the brackets at the end of the function, it puts a little .
next to the false answer, removes the brackets and comes up with an error
message?

This is only happening on one particular PC, when I create the same formula
on other pC's, it works fine so I know my formula is correct.

is there a setting on the PC that must be wrong?

Nested, IF, AND, And OR Function

Feb 22, 2009

I have an assignment in which I have to use nested, IF, AND and OR functions. Does anyone know the syntax for this kind of function? Basically I have to determine leave time based on years of service and whether the employee is full time or part time. Part-time with less than 1.5 years of service = 0 days of leave Part-time over 1.5 and full-time under 1year = 3 days of leave and full time over 1 year = 5 days of leave. I know how to do a nested function, but I have not worked with both an AND and OR together.

List Information Based On Cell Condition?

Nov 3, 2011

I would like to filter my list to show rows with a date difference of >0 (raised date later than date of contact) and move certain cells onto another sheet in the same workbook.

e.g if diff in F1:F1000 is >0, populate the following onto this sheet

Job no - Address - Postcode - Name - Date raised

Would this be a case of using a vlookup? having a few problems with it at the moment

Sumifs With Condition Active Based On Cell Value?

Dec 20, 2012

I am trying to get a Sumifs to work where one condition is activated based on a cell value.

SUMIFS(\$E\$2:\$E\$6,\$A\$2:\$A\$6,"=Region",\$B\$2:\$B\$6,"="&B1). I have a drop down in cell B1 that lists all the products.

I want the condition to be active only when I make a selection in the drop down, if I don't then I want the Sumifs to ignore the second condition and do a Sum on Region.
