If, and, or

Scenario: I am trying to find the best way to search one row across ten non consecutive columns to see if criteria is met. This row is one of a thousand and the columns are ten of ninety-five. My goal is: If B3="V" AND AF3="B" AND Q3-AQ3 <=|2.25| OR AH3="B" AND Q3-AS3 <=|2.25| OR AJ3="B" AND Q3-AU3 <=|2.25| OR AL3="B" AND Q3-AW3 <=|2.25|OR AN3="B" AND Q3-AY3 <=|2.25|OR AP3="B" AND Q3-BA3 <=|2.25|OR AR3="B" AND Q3-BC3 <=|2.25|OR AT3="B" AND Q3-BE3 <=|2.25| OR AV3="B" AND Q3-BG3 <=|2.25| OR AX3="B" AND Q3-BI3 <=|2.25|then TRUE. I know there's a way to nest this but I can't figure out how to get it to work. Everything I've tried has gotten errors so I wanted to ask you guys for suggestions.
Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Excel Facts

Why are there 1,048,576 rows in Excel?
The Excel team increased the size of the grid in 2007. There are 2^20 rows and 2^14 columns for a total of 17 billion cells.

Looking at this post is dang confusing so let me try to reword it:
If B3="V" AND
AF3="B" AND Q3-AQ3 <=|2.25|
OR AH3="B" AND Q3-AS3 <=|2.25|
OR AJ3="B" AND Q3-AU3 <=|2.25|
OR AL3="B" AND Q3-AW3 <=|2.25|
OR AN3="B" AND Q3-AY3 <=|2.25|
OR AP3="B" AND Q3-BA3 <=|2.25|
OR AR3="B" AND Q3-BC3 <=|2.25|
OR AT3="B" AND Q3-BE3 <=|2.25|
OR AV3="B" AND Q3-BG3 <=|2.25|
OR AX3="B" AND Q3-BI3 <=|2.25|
then true.
I've tried doing each step then nesting into one formula, but as I mentioned I keep getting errors.

First, I think you mean |Q3-AQ3| <= 2.25, or the difference between Q3 and AQ3 is less than 2.25. If so, you can write your formula like this:

=IF(B3="V",IF(OR(AND(AF3="B",ABS(Q3-AQ3)<=2.25),AND(AH3="B",ABS(Q3-AS3)<=2.25),AND(AJ3="B",ABS(Q3-AU3)<=2.25),AND(AL3="B",ABS(Q3-AW3)<=2.25),AND(AN3="B",ABS(Q3-AY3)<=2.25),AND(AP3="B",ABS(Q3-BA3)<=2.25),AND(AR3="B",ABS(Q3-BC3)<=2.25),AND(AT3="B",ABS(Q3-BE3)<=2.25),AND(AV3="B",ABS(Q3-BG3)<=2.25),AND(AX3="B",ABS(Q3-BI3)<=2.25)),TRUE))

Somewhat large, but straightforward. You can also use this shorter version:

=IF(B3="V",IF(SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF(OFFSET(AF3,0,{0,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18}),"B"),--(ABS(Q3-SUBTOTAL(9,OFFSET(AQ3,0,{0,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18})))<2.25)),TRUE))

which also works, but is a bit trickier.

Perhaps something like this for a simplified version, which might get you started.

=if(and(B3="V",or(and(AF3="B",(Q3-AQ3)<=2.25),and(AH3="B",(Q3-AQ3)<=2.25)),TRUE,FALSE)

I think this works for two conditions, perhaps you can work out how to extend it to more conditions.

BUT, you have hinted that there may be MANY MORE conditions that you want to test.
If that's the case, there might well be better ways of doing this.

Maybe this array formula...

=AND(B3="V",SUM(IF(MOD(COLUMN(AF3:AX3)-COLUMN(AF3)+1,2)=1,IF(AF3:AX3="B",IF(ABS(Q3-AQ3:BI3)<=2.25,1))))>0)
confirmed with Ctrl+Shift+Enter, not just Enter
