I need a formula to to look a 3 different columns and if any contain the number 6, return the value of a different cell. For example:

If F4 or G4 or H4 contain the number 6, return the content in A4.

Thanks!

Excel Facts

Using Function Arguments with nested formulas
If writing INDEX in Func. Arguments, type MATCH(. Use the mouse to click inside MATCH in the formula bar. Dialog switches to MATCH.
welcome to the board!

try this -

=IF(OR(F4:H4=6),A4,"No 6")

which needs to be array entered (i.e. with control + shift + enter, not just enter. If done right, excel will add curly brackets round the formula).

It's just shorthand for:

=IF(OR(F4=6,G4=6,H4=6),A4,"No 6")

Gee! That was fast! And it is exactly what I needed, except that I forgot one thing.

Using the same conditions, return the content of A4 only if R4>0

Thanks!
