# Nested IF Formula That Takes Into Effect Many Variables

May 5, 2014
Basically I need a formula that takes into effect many variables. It needs to check a size, thickness, and material, to determine a cost...

1.5 O.D. - 16GA - 304SS = $X

but

1.5 O.D. - 18 GA - 304SS = $Y

and such.

The problem I have is not only am I not understanding a lot of Excel jargon, the data set is not in perfect "example" conditions.

O.D. is in N:N yet there are blanks between N(x) and N(y), GA is in O:O yet blanks between O(a) and O(b), and so on.

Here is what I have at the moment, it uses a second sheet to derive the cost based on the parameters. Please ignore the first few terms, they are used with this cost lookup to give me my final. There also may be incorrect syntax in this, but since I get a nesting error first, I really don't know.

=V7+(Q7*M7*(IF(N7=2=AND(O7=20)=AND(L7=304),â€™Steel Tube Cost WIPâ€™!$DD$19,IF(N7=2=AND(O7=20)=AND(L7=316),â€™SteelTubeCostWIPâ€™!$DD$20,IF(N7=2=AND(O7=20)=AND(L7=2205),

â€™SteelTubeCostWIPâ€™!$DD$21,IF(N7=2=AND(O7=18)=AND(L7=304),â€™Steel Tube Cost WIPâ€™!$DD$16,IF(N7=2=AND(O7=18)=AND(L7=316),â€™SteelTubeCostWIPâ€™!$DD$17,IF(N7=2=AND(O7=18)=AND(L7=2205),

â€™SteelTubeCostWIPâ€™!$DD$18,IF(N7=2=AND(O7=16)=AND(L7=304),â€™Steel Tube Cost

[Code] ......

Mentioning LOOKUP, can I even use it? I've attempted many times however it isn't going too well What can I do?

I am creating a worksheet and I have a formlua where the value is text. I can make it work standing alone but not with other variables. =IF(E11=S1,0)+(IF(E12=S1,0)+(IF(E13=S1,0.0025))+IF(E14=S1,"Call for Prciing"))

I want the range in the VLOOKUP below to display its actual value - ie "'6 June 08'!$A:$C" in the formula rather than the actual variable name 'strResult'.

Sub PreviousCount()

strDate = "6 June 08"

strColumnRange = "$A:$C"

strResult = "='" & strDate & "'!" & strColumnRange

Dim i As Long

i = Range("A2"). CurrentRegion.Rows.Count

Range("D2:D" & i).FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-3]="""", ""Column A blank!"", IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(RC[-3],strResult,3,0)), ""NEW INSTALL"", VLOOKUP(RC[-3],strResult,3,0)))"

End Sub

I can choose among three variables in cell A1. They are named P10, P50 and P90. I want to substitute them with 1,2 and 3 in cell B1. Is it possible to do this by using the substitute-function or do I have to use a nested IF.

I am receiving an error message for a nested if statement. Excel is telling me my statement contains too many variables.

I am using a VLOOKUP to look up data in a table based upon a result in the first table, however, the entry that is returned is different based upon a unique cell value.

Would anyone have any suggestions on how to shorten this down?

=IF(CR="AG",IF(ISBLANK(A7),"",IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A7,SI.xls!$A:$G,3,FALSE))=TRUE," ",VLOOKUP(A7,SI.xls!$A:$G,3,FALSE))),

IF(CR="G",IF(ISBLANK(A7),"",VLOOKUP(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A7,SI.xls!$A:$G,4,FALSE))=TRUE," ",VLOOKUP(A7,SI.xls!$A:$G,4,FALSE))),

IF(CR="MG",IF(ISBLANK(A7),"",VLOOKUP(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A7,SI.xls!$A:$G,5,FALSE))=TRUE," ",VLOOKUP(A7,SI.xls!$A:$G,5,FALSE))),

IF(CR="C",IF(ISBLANK(A7),"",VLOOKUP(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A7,SI.xls!$A:$G,6,FALSE))=TRUE," ",VLOOKUP(A7,SI.xls!$A:$G,6,FALSE)))),

IF(CR="UC",IF(ISBLANK(A7),"",VLOOKUP(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A7,SI.xls!$A:$G,7,FALSE))=TRUE," ",VLOOKUP(A7,SI.xls!$A:$G,7,FALSE)))))))

I am very new at in depth excel formulas, usually in my daily work I can get by with simple summations, if statements etc. This one has thrown me for a loop.

I'm making a spreadsheet on soil compressibility and I feel like I am just knocking my head against the wall. Here is what I am working with. I need to calculate values in a column, we'll call them "Rm" values.

There are a few basic things that dictate which "Rm" equation you use. I'm substituting V,W,X,Y,Z in for the equations to simplify the question.

I = 3 Rm= W*log(K)

Not sure what formula to use for this set-up:

Col1 - Name_Last

Col2 - Name_First

Col3 - Ref_Name

The desired effect is under column 3, you have "Name_First Name_Last". Attached sample file.

I have a formula as follows:- =COUNTIF(C$2:C2,C2)

The problem is I have to fire it down 35,000 rows and it takes forever and freezes the PC. Is there a VBA code that will do it quicker or do I have to put up with it?

I have one data tab which constantly changes. (adding more products and corresponding volume/prices) For the lookup tab, I want to look up one value and return multiple values.

I have figured out an index array formula but it just calculates so slowly. My live file is about 8MB now. When I apply my formula, it takes forever to save.

I am using the below formula to distinctly count the number of customers that match the criteria that I have in Cells C7 and B10. The data is in a separate worksheet, that I am showing Named Detail of which will be changing on a monthly basis, so a pivot table does not want to be used. The detail data ranges from row 7-40,000, and the file is currently 8610KB's, and can potentially grow.

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(Detail!$A$7:$A$40000=C$7,IF(Detail!$B$7:$B$40000=$B10,IF(Detail!$D$7:$D$40000<> "",MATCH(Detail!$D$7:$D$40000,Detail!$D$7:$D$40000,0)))),ROW(Cust)-MIN(ROW(Detail!$D$7:$D$40000))+1),1))

This formula works but takes an excessive amount of time for one caluclation, and I need this for multiple column and row critera. So, can this calculation be changed in order to get the same result with faster calculation time? I am using Excel 2003.

I have a dataset in the following manner

A B C D Value

1 0 2 3 D

2 1 3 4 D

6 2 3 4 A

The VALUE field is my problem. I need a formula so that the value field takes the max of the other four columns and returns a string (e.g. 'A' in the column header)

I used the following guide to construct a hyperlink formula which takes me to the coresponding part number entered into a box,

http://www.ozgrid.com/Excel/hyperlink-lookup.htm

It works well in the database I set up with all the part number the problem comes when I tried to use the same hyperlink formula in a diffrent work book referencing the database.

I get a correct returned line reffrence from the macro but it will not open a link to the work book

=HYPERLINK('Database Final.xls'!wbsheet & ADDRESS(MATCH(N16,'[Database Final.xls]DATABASE'!$A$1:$A$9999,0),1),N16 & "s' Info")

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.

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?

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!!

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","")

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).

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?

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.

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

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")
