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

Nov 25, 2008
I keep getting the "You've entered too many arguments for this function" error.

Here is the formula:

=IF(B15=D40,E40,"",IF(B15=D41,E41,"",IF(B15=D42,E42,"","Invalid Shipping option")))

I am entering the following Nested IF(AND statement into a cell and getting a message stating "You've entered too many arguments for this function." Any idea on what formula I can use to get the needed information into this cell based on the fact that there are different inputs that can be entered into the related cell that will trigger the needed respons in the working cell?

=IF(AND(K1051="Down",L1051<2),"Yes","",IF(AND(K1051="Partially Down",L1051<2),"Yes",""))

I have this formula in cell Q34;

..........

"You've entered too many arguments for this function" Logically I can follow this message but I was under the impression that you could get a maximum of 64 arguments in an "IF" condition.

The actual value of Cell P34 is DKK1938.22 so I expect it to return £203.68 in cell Q34.

=IF(E18>760,(">760"),(IF(E18>550,("550-760"),(IF(E18>365,("365-550"),(IF(E18>210,("210-365"),(IF(E18>120,("120-210"),(IF(E18>90,("90-120"),(IF(E18>60,("60-90"),(if (E18>30, ("1-30"), (0))))))))))))))))

If you try to use this it will not work, as excel takes only 7 arguments

can someone help me with this. Do any one know macro for the same.

if you use this formule it will work

=IF(E18>760,(">760"),(IF(E18>550,("550-760"),(IF(E18>365,("365-550"),(IF(E18>210,("210-365"),(IF(E18>120,("120-210"),(IF(E18>90,("90-120"),(IF(E18>60,("60-90"),(0))))))))))))))

I need some assistance in using an array formula which averages based on multiple arguments. The relevent range names in my input data are:

Col A - Manager Col B - Report Type Col C - Days taken to Complete

and I have used Validation Lists to include several different Managers and 5 Report Types which I'll call A - E, with Days taken to Complete an input. Each Manager may have 0 to numerous instances of each report during each period.

I'm trying to build a table which includes each manager and the average number of days taken to complete each report. The complication is that, while Report A & B are separate reports, for this purpose I need to get an average for A & B together.

For C, D & E, I have used the following:

{=AVERAGE(IF((Type="C")*(Manager="Smith"),Days_taken_to_Complete))}

For A&B, I have tried:

{=AVERAGE(IF((Type="A")*(Type="B")*(Manager="Smith"),Days_taken_to_Complete))}

but this doesn't work. Could someone please advise me the correct formula if either of two states in a named range are to be used to average a second named range?

have a function that takes an unknown number of ranges (worksheet cells) as arguments that can then be joined with the provided delimiter.

It should ignore null values.

I saw that someone posted the following line of code:

Replace(WorksheetFunction.Trim(Join(myArray)), " ", ",")

So I guess my real question is how to pass an unknown number of arguments into a function and put the values in an array.

I'm not sure what verbage to use in order to describe what I'm trying to accomplish.

Let me give you a piece of code and the question will be clear.

Function addValuesToComboBox(arg1)

arg1.AddItem("one")

arg1.AddItem("two")

arg1.AddItem("three")

End Function

I would like to use this function later in the code in the form of:

addValuesToComboBox("Combobox1")

addValuesToCombobox("Combobox2")

VBA will error out with "Run-time error '424': Object required". I know I need to declare the variable arg1 as a type in order to use it in this form, but I don't know the correct data type.

I also ran across a similar issue like this where the advice was to use the Set function in the form of:

Function addValuesToComboBox(arg1)

Set arg1 = arg1.AddItem("one")

Set arg1 = arg1.AddItem("two")

Set arg1 = arg1.AddItem("three")

End Function

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?

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.

I need to keep track of my salesmen's time. However, the company will not pay for the first 45 minutes so I need a formula that says, if the time entered in under "worked" is less than 45 minutes, no time will be deducted. If the time entered is equal to or greater than 45 minutes, 45 minutes will be deducted. These are the columns needed and the Daily Hours would be the total of all the previous columns.

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")

I am trying to concatenate the text of a few cells in a specific worksheet. I'm not wanting to use the STRING & STRING type code because I already had a Concatenate formula nested with an index formula and needed to have this formula copied to a certain RANGE, Where the RANGE was specified by a Variable. T

he Code below does what I need if the CONCATENATE/INDEX formula is in the cell that im copying already. (BELOW) The Formula in the cell, for example, on row 19 of worksheet "COMMISSION", that needs to be copied and incremented down the VARIABLE RANGE is

=CONCATENATE(INDEX(OUTPUTS!J:J,(ROW(OUTPUTS!J2)-1)*2+1)," ",INDEX(OUTPUTS!K:K,(ROW(OUTPUTS!K2)-1)*2+1)).

VB:

Dim iInput_Rows As Integer

iInput_Rows = Worksheets("Workspace").Range("D3").Value

Dim iOutput_Rows As Integer

iOutput_Rows = Worksheets("Workspace").Range("D1").Value

Dim iAnalog_Rows As Integer

[Code] ....

My problem is when I use the following code to insert that concatenate/index formula, through vba, then I get errors because it evidently doesnt like the " " for the space i needed between texts. (The Formula is concatenating text in those cells but every other Row) Can I do this in VBA?

VB:

Worksheets("COMMISSION").Range("B19 + iOutputs_Rows").Formula = "=CONCATENATE(INDEX(OUTPUTS!J:J,(ROW(OUTPUTS!J2)-1)*2+1)," ",INDEX(OUTPUTS!K:K,(ROW(OUTPUTS!K2)-1)*2+1))"

I'm writing a spreadsheet where I need to calculate a nested IF function (I think), and I am unsure of how to do it.

The problem is this:

The total $ value of the quote is entered, then depending on two variables, a rebate may be deducted from this total value. The first variable is eligibility (a Y/N response), the second is the type of project - there are two types of project and each attract a different rebate amount.

So I have:

A: total quote $

B: Eligibility - 'Y' or 'N' (if 'Y', then value of 'C' is deducted from 'A'), (if 'N', then no value is deducted from 'A')

C: Type - '1' or '2' (if '1', then 'C' = $1000), (if '2', then 'C' = $1600)

D: final result

I have multiple sheets within one Excel file. Each sheet is structured the same way. Column B lists Client's last names, which differ from sheet to sheet, though some clients may be repeated in several tabs. I have a column K which displays either the number 1 or 0. This is consistent between sheets.

I have created a formula that will look at the last name in a specific cell in column B of sheet 2 (FY 07) and search sheet 1 (FY 06) column B for the same last name.

=IF(MATCH($B5,'FY 06'!$B$5:$B$24,0),1,0)

If the same last name exists and if column K of sheet 2 and sheet 1 display a "1", I want it to place a 0 in the formula cell.

So, if there is a client that is in both sheets and has a "1" in both columns K of each sheet, I want the formula to let me know.

I receive montly investment performance projections going out monthly for 10 years. I need to show the return annually for each year. I created a SUMIFS formula to sum the percentages between two date ranges (beginning of the year and the end of the year for each year). However, my SUMIFS formula does not take into considersation compounding. How can I modify the SUMIFS formula I created to take into consideration compounding?

I know how to convert monthly percentages to an annual percentage,using the PRODUCT formula =PRODUCT(1+T15,1+U15,1+V15,1+W15,1+X15,1+Y15,1+Z15,1+AA15,1+AB15,1+AC15,1+AD15)-1, whereas T15:AD15 is the monthly percentage gain. Is there a simplier/alternative way that I can incorporate into the SUMIFS formula?

If it is too complicated to utilize a SUMIFS formula, I would like to be able to select a range of cells and have Excel calculate the result vs typing "1+[select the cell]," for each month. It takes me forever and open to input errors. It would be much easier to be able to select a range of cells when creating the formula.
