Hi I am using Office XP ( 2002 ) and in excel I want to use the following formula

=IF(J2<19.99,1,IF(AND(J2>=20,J2<=39.99),2,IF(AND(J2>=40,J2<=59.99),3,IF(AND(J2>=60,J2<=79.99),4,IF(AND(J2>=80,J2<=99.99),5,IF(AND(J2>=100,J2<=119.99),6,IF(AND(J2>=120,J2<=139.99),7,0)))))))

only thing is that is the maximum ( I think ) amount of If I can use at once If I am correct as when I try to go on with it ( There are 16 parts to it not just eh seven stated there ) it highlights my last AND and tells me the formula is incorrect when looking and looking very thoroughly at it ?

Basically I am doing a price breakdown into 18 catagories and the formula you see has teh first 7 in it... the list I use is this:

0-19.99
20-39.99
40-59.99
60-79.99
80-99.99
100-119.99
120-139.99
140-159.99
160-179.99
180-199.99
200-249.99
250-299.99
300-349.99
350-399.99
400-499.99
500-699.99
700-999.99
1000+

Im sure you see the way I was going about this. Is there a limit to the amount I get to use or not ?

Please help...Oh and Thanx :0)

You are better served using VLOOKUP. It is clearer than your lengthy formula and easier to edit if you need to change anything.

hmm was thinking of using it that way but wanted to do a direct formula to it to save me problems as have done a simialr task with vlookup for this sort of project before and... well it got messy once the project progressed.

Thanks for the advice though.

Try:

=MATCH(J2,{0,20,40,60,80,100,120,140,160,80,200,250,300,350,400,500,700,1000},1)

Please note the small typing error

=MATCH(J2,{0,20,40,60,80,100,120,140,160,180,200,250,300,350,400,500,700,1000},1)

should be correct.
