# Returning Text From Nested IF And Vlookup Statements

Jul 26, 2006I am trying to return a text statement using nested IF statements. In order to find the value in the IF statements, I have to use lookups.

Excel spreadsheet will contain a form that will consist of drop down boxes (data validation). Each drop down box will define the data that can be selected in the next drop down box.

The way I initially went about it, is creating nested IF statements. However, we all know there is a limit of 7 nested IF statements. I have 10! So below formula does not work:

=if(B5=1,F5:I5, if(B5=2, F6:I6, if(B5=3, F7:H7, if(B5=4, F8:J8, if(B5=5, F9:H9, if(B5=6,F10:G10, if(B5=7,F11:H11, if(B5=8,F12:H12, if(B5=9, F13:I13, if(B5=10, F14:K14))))))))))

I tried other workarounds such as CONCATENATE, or & signs. No luck. VLOOKUP does not work also, because there are multiple columns in col_index_num. Anything else I try gives me this message:

“The List Source must be a delimited list, or a reference to a single row or column”

What should really happen is this:

User selects value in first list box. Second list box shows values associated wih the value from the first drop down only.

How can I combine the two below statements like these to make one "Or Statement"? Sorry...I haven't done excel and/or's in forever?

=IF(('Proj Info'!L10="main")*AND('Proj Info'!L9="CT"),"BMSVC",'Proj Info'!L9)

OR

=IF(('Proj Info'!L10="serv")*AND('Proj Info'!L9="CT"),"BMSVC",'Proj Info'!L9)

I have two worksheets. On one worksheet will be a place to enter a five digit number. In the adjacent cell, I want to search on the second worksheet in a three-column area for that same five digit number. The five-digit numbers on the second worksheet are located in the third column and the text I want returned from the second column. I cannot change the order of the columns as the first worksheet will be an "add-on" worksheet to a widely used spreadsheet within our company (this spreadsheet already has the second worksheet formatted).

=IF(AND(I2="Amendments",F2<=3,IF(AND(I2="Renewals",F2<=1,OR(D2<=G2)))),"Met",IF(F2="n/a","n/a","Missed"))

I've been able to get separate pieces of the formula to work correctly, example:

=IF(AND(F2<>"n/a",I2="Amendments",F2<=3,OR(D2<=G2)),"Met",IF(F2="n/a","n/a","Missed"))

but when I try to combine everything into one string I can not get it to work.

I cannot get the following nested IF statements to work and get the "Else without If" error for the first Else If statement. I had assumed the first "If" would apply to this

Private Sub ReconcileNow()

If txtTValue = "" Then

Exit Sub

End If

In the example below, could you use anything else other than "with"? Couldn't you use two if's?

I have ranges that are added (E11,E14,E16,E18) if no exemptions exist (my check boxes). I have IF statements with two check boxes. If one checkbox is selected a seperate calculation is performed and the result is placed in cell AH49. My other check box places it's formula in cell AH50. But if I check both boxes I want the value from cell AH52 to display. However, it doesn't display, it gives the value from cell AH49. Is the code wrong?

=IF(AD49=TRUE,AH49,IF(AD50=TRUE,AH50,IF(AND(AD49=TRUE,AD50=TRUE),AH52,SUM(E11,E14,E16,E18))))

I'm trying to nest the following:

=IF(VLOOKUP($F6,'Dept location'!$A:$B,2,FALSE)>0,VLOOKUP($F6,'Dept location'!$A:$B,2,FALSE),FALSE)

=IF(VLOOKUP($H6,'Project location'!$C:$K,9,FALSE)>0,VLOOKUP($H6,'Project location'!$C:$K,9,FALSE),FALSE)

=IF(VLOOKUP($V6,'Dept location'!$A:$B,2,FALSE)>0,VLOOKUP($V6,'Dept location'!$A:$B,2,FALSE),FALSE)

To start with, not sure I have the ">0" part correct in the above IF statements. That expression is meant to be asking it: Is the VLOOKUP finding valid data (result #N/A)?

Next, comes the nesting part. If the VLOOKUP isn't finding valid data (result = #N/A), then I want it to move on to the next IF statement.

I have 3 different columns I want it to look at; hence, the 3 IF statements. In the end, if none of the three IF statements results in any valid data, I want it to give the result "Research".

I am trying to write one Excel formula that can accomplish the following: Review a Discount Sheet to determine whether a Class Name should be purchased based on its current discount compared to my Target Discount for that Class Name. The majority of the time, weekly discount changes occur in 5-10% increments, but occasionally they will occur in increments of 20% or more. If a discount percentage increases by 20% or more and surpasses my Target Discount, the current method I am using to automate this process does not work.

Example: Last week's discount in cell G2 is 25%, and this week's discount in cell H2 is 40%. The Target Discount for that class is 30%, so under my current system I would not request that Class Name for purchasing because the current discount does not exactly equal my Target Discount, even though the previous week's discount did not exceed my Target Discount and now I should purchase that Class Name because the discount has gone from not meeting to exceeding my Target Discount.

INDEX MATCH used to retrieve current discount:

=INDEX('Discount Sheet'!$H$2:$H$4910,MATCH(A3,'Discount Sheet'!$F$2:$F$4910,0))

Validity Test in Cell F2 to compare Current Discount to Target Discount:

=E2=C2

NOTE: The above validity test could include a >= to capture Current Discounts that have exceeded the Target Discount; however, over time all Current Discounts will exceed the Target Discount. It is only when last week's discount did not exceed the Target Discount and now the Current Discount does exceed the Target Discount should a class be purchased.

The final result of this formula should be "TRUE' or "FALSE" without having to cut and paste any data for additional validity comparisons.

I've been using nested IF statements, with success for a while, but now I'm into my fourth nested statement I'm starting to get some problems.

=IF($P15>0,SUM(IF(APR09!$M$2:$M$500=Department!$M$1,IF(APR09!$B$2:$B$500=$Q$6,IF((AND(APR09!$G$2:$G$ 500<>Department!$N$29,APR09!$G$2:$G$500<>Department!$N$30)),1,0),$N$2))))

Is what I've come up with so far. However, this returns 0, even though there are 3 items which should resolve the criteria. The main problem is here: IF((AND(APR09!$G$2:$G$500<>Department!$N$29,APR09!$G$2:$G$500<>Department!$N$30))

Where I am trying to make the sum increase by 1 if the cell from the row in question, having made it through the first 3 IF statements is not equal to either of those two cells (a range would be better) then the Sum needs to be increased by 1.

I have this nested if statement, but my last IF statement needs to incorporate another component.

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)

I have a workbook with two worksheets, Sheet1 and Sheet2. Sheet2 contains a table of values that need to be input into a cell on Sheet1, pending the results of comparing two other cells on Sheet1. I have 8 possible variations resulting from that comparison and I cannot make this work as the IF statement limits you to 7 deep.

Example:

Sheet1

A1 (text string value) = LOWER

B1 (text string value) = L1

C1 (currency with no decimals) = Sheet2!Somecell (decision of which cell to use depends on combination of A1 and B1)

A1 can be either the string "LOWER" or "MIDDLE". B1 can be the strings "L1", "L2", "L3", or "L4". The strings in B1 are not cell references, but simple text. This leads to four variations for a row that has "LOWER" in it's A column, and the same for "MIDDLE" - totaling 8 possible combinations.

Depending on the combination, I need to input a number from Sheet2 and that number is different for each unique combination of the eight possibilities. There is no mathematical calculation taking place on Sheet2 - just an "if x and y then z" decision on Sheet1. I will use the value of Sheet1!C1 in other math functions on Sheet1.

I know there is a maximum of 7 nested IF statements available but I cannot get the following formula to work, even though it only has 7 IF's

=SUM(IF(Department=J$88,IF(Progress_StatusCNP,IF(Progress_StatusCSO,IF(Progress_StatusNS,IF(Current_Phase=$B91,IF(MID(Progress_Status,1,7)="On Hold",IF(MID(Group_Procurement_Involved?,1,3)="Yes",In_Year_Opportunity__2007,0),0))))/1000)))

CNP, CSO and NS are named cells, all named ranges are the same size and the formula is entered with Ctrl & Shift to make an array formula.

I am using VBA to put a formula into a cell. The formula is

VB: = IFERROR(VLOOKUP(LEFT(A5,11), 'New Quarterly Report'!A$11:E$37,3,FALSE), " - ")

But when I try to put this into a cell using the value option, I get a run time error 13: Type Mismatch. No problems while im compiling it but it comes up only during execution

VB: Sheets("Summation Table Template").range("B4").Value = "= IFERROR(VLOOKUP(LEFT(A5,11),'New Quarterly Report'!A$11:E$37,3,FALSE), " - ")"

When I try to put only the VLOOKUP, it works fine.

VB: Sheets("Summation Table Template").range("B4").Value = "= VLOOKUP(LEFT(A5,11),'New Quarterly Report'!A$11:E$37,3,FALSE)"

But I want the cell to not show #N/A when a value through vlookup is not found. Other formulas Iv tried are to use ISERROR with IF and also to store the formaula in a string and then put it into Range.Value but it still gives me a run time error 13.

I have been asked to go through some information which has over 200 000 lines, what I need to do is as follows:

where order number is unique, revenue source = "Unique"

where order number appears more than once, check division to see if it appears in more than one division, if it does revenue source = "Cross Selling", if it does not then revenue source = "Divisional Package"

I need all of the above in formula line which will be inserted in the revenue source column

I have attached the file with a sample of the information I am using.

creating Named Formulas to handle nested IF & And statements, to get around excel's limit of 7 nested IF statements.

First of all, is it possible to create a Named Formula with combined IF with AND statement such as: =IF(AND(F26>=54,F26<=77.99),"2x3"," ")--I am getting a periodic error message: "Cell with block IF function should not contain anything else."?

I am trying to: 1. Contstruct two separate Mega formulas using IF & AND to determine what range of sizes , located in Col "F", should fall into which SIZE_CAT, sample of ranges are as follows:

SIZE_CATSIZE IN TOTAL INCHES

2X3 54 thru 77.99

3X5 78 thru 108

4X6 108 thru 138

2. Name these two formulas, FirstNamed and SecondNamed

FirstNamed formula is:=IF(AND(F26>=54,F26<=77.99),"2x3",IF(AND(F26>=78,F26<=108),"3x5",IF(AND($F26>=108,$F26<=138),"4x6",IF(AND($F26>=138.01,$F26<=168),"5x8",""))))

SecondNamed formula is:=IF(AND($F30>=168.01,$F30<=198),"6x9",IF(AND($F30>=198.01,$F30<=234),"8x10",IF(AND($F30>=234.01,$F30<=270),"9x12",IF(AND($F30>=270.01,$F30<=320),"10x14",IF(AND($F30>=320.01,$F30<=500),"Larger","")))))

3. Combine two named formulas with a "Master Formula" such as:

=IF(FirstNamed,FirstNamed,SecondNamed)

I got the IF with AND formulas to work in a test columns, but cannot seem to get them to respond properly when trying to get them into a Named Formula(s).

I have attached an example of the workbook.

I am trying to produce a report of supplier transactions sorted by area code. I have a spreadsheet of data consisting of Supplier Code, Supplier Name, Transaction Amount and Area Code.

I want to be able to firstly seperate the transactions by area, then also consolidate the data so it shows one row per supplier with total amount spent on that supplier and a transaction count on that supplier. I know how to sumif the transaction total and countif the transaction count.

However I have problems consolidating the suppliers in to one row per unique supplier and I also have problems nesting an AND statement in to the sumif/countif statements. I need additional criteria in the forumula to only count transactions in a specified area code.

I've attached an example spreadsheet to make it alot clearer. See results sheet in this workbook.

I am trying to use the following formula in Microsoft Excel 2007-

ROUND(IF(DataInput!$D$5 = "Black",0.81*E4*O4,(IF(DataInput!$D$5 = "Red",J4*0.025*E4*O4,(IF(DataInput!$D$5="Green",(57.00+IF(J4>25,(J4-50)*33.59,0))*O4))))),2

I want to use an IFERROR statement. If the results do not equal Black, Red or Green, I want the data to error so I can have the word FIX showing.

Using Excel 2010.

I extracted data from .pdf to Excel using Able2Extract. Now I need to scrub the output a bit.

I see commonalities in the data for the start and stop of each set of data that I can key in on.

Once I find the start and stop points for each set of data I would like to fill all rows in-between the points and then discard anything that remains outside of these boundaries.

I have something wrong in my logic, way too many rows are deleted.

Code:

Option Explicit

Sub GetLineSets()

'Purpose: Identify relevant line sets, delete all other rows

Dim wbBook As Workbook

Dim wsData As Worksheet

Dim strFormula As String

Dim lngRows As Long

Dim C As Range

Dim blnFlag As Boolean

I have got a table with data from 2005 to date, (for example) For the purpose of what I am doing I need a column which shows date ranges between September 2005 - August 2006 to show as 2005/2006, then September 2006 - August 2007 to show as 2006/2007. I have done some research and seen that, Potentially, a nested 'IF' can be used but it can only be used 7 times which would cause a problem going forward....

Is this the only way or is there a better way (without using VB)?

I am using Excel 2010

1) What's the maximum limit of IF statements in a formula for MS Excel 2010?

2) I have 8 nested IF statements, but I am having trouble with the False part of the argument. I was able to get the False part to work for the 4th argument (because I simply put a comma and closed it's respective colored parenthesis) but the following 3 I can't seem to get and the following message pops when I hit enter "The formula you typed contains an error."

For the False part of the remaining 3 nested statement which is at the end of the formula I just type:

IF($E$2="Q3"........)))IF($E$2="Q2".....)))IF($E$2="Q1")))

And close it's respective colored IF statement argument. I tried putting a comma at the end of each False part for the arguments but it pops with the message "You've entered too many arguments for this function."

The formula below

=IF(M22<=286.74>191.16,(286.74-M22)*30%, IF(M22<=191.16>127.44,((191.16-M22)*50%)+28.674, IF(M22<=127.44>79.65,((127.44-M22)*70%)+60.534, IF(M22<=79.65,((79.65-M22)*90%)+93.987. is returning all data based on =IF(M22<=286.74>191.16,(286.74-M22)*30%, and is disregrading the rest of the formula.

My formula is returning a 0 when true instead of being blank as specified. If I designate a value other than "blank" (i.e. "A Word") it still returns a 0. What am I doing wrong?

=IF(AND(CBAuditType="PHYSICAL",TxtInsuredName=""),"",TxtInsuredName)

The formula I am having issues with is:

=IF(L14="YES",IF(B14="","",NETWORKDAYS(B14,IF(AH14="",TODAY(),AH14),IF(L14="NO",NETWORKDAYS(B14,IF(V14="",TODAY(),V14))))))

I'm looking for formula to return a value based on the amount of networkdays between 2 dates.

Column L has a drop down for

"YES" and "NO"

If "YES" is selected then I need the formula to subtract AH from B (if B is blank I don't want the formula to return anything)

if AH has no date then I want it to use todays date.

If "NO" is selected then I need the formula to subtract V from B (again, if B is blank I don't want the formula to return anything)

if V has no date then I want it to use todays date.

The formula seems to work for everything as it is EXCEPT when L is "NO" it only return FALSE.

I have a formula in column A of the following sheet. The problem is that when the entry in cell H contains a letter as well as a number then the formula in column a returns 0.

Also if the value for false in the forumula is changed from 0 i.e to 1 or 2, then a value is returned in column A (this is shown in the red highlighted cells).

Does anyone have any idea why this is?

I’m trying to develop a workbook which holds monthly data on loan information. It tracks the interest and balance on the loan. I want the first page to have a table displaying the interest payments for every individual tab. When I was brainstorming the idea, I was considering a sort of Vlookup function to find the tab the account is on and then a further function, possibly another vlookup which connects the month to that month’s interest payment. Can anyone help me figure this out?

The attached spreadsheet is obviously simplified, there are well over 30 tabs. But I would like it to, ideally, search the account number column, search the workbook for that account number, and then when on that page use the month at the top of the first page and retrieve the interest payment and put it back in the cell. It’d also be great if the formula can be transferred between workbooks. I’m not sure if that makes sense; basically if I were to copy that worksheet into the next months book, I would like that the formula read those tabs instead of becoming obsolete due to references from the first workbook.
