I have a spreadsheet in which I need one cell to return a value depending on the entry in another cell, using the If/then function. The formula I am currently using is below. When cell E27 says "Monthly Reduction" or "quarterly reduction", the cell that contains this formula correctly populates the appropriate value. When E27 says "annual reduction", this cell with the formula returns a "FALSE" value. What am I doing wrong with this formula? Thanks so much for the help

=IF(E27="Monthly Reduction", 'Bill Plan Calculator'!B19, IF(E27="Quarterly Reduction", 'Bill Plan Calculator'!B42, IF(E27="Annual Reduction", 'Bill Plan Calculator'!B65)))

That probably means you either spelled "Annual Reduction" incorrectly in the cell or added one or more spaces either before or after the "Annual Reduction" in the cell.
