Hello Team

I wonder if you please help me with a nested "IF" Function formula. I am trying to put indicators as below 10, 20 & 30 in (say column B,) against a set of figures in column "A". EG figures between 10000 & 20000 =10, 20001 to 30000 = 20 & figures between 30001 to 40000 = 40.

Many Thanks

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

try:

=FLOOR(A1/1000,10)

Paddy

EDIT - but only if you didn't mean to write 40 as the option for between 30001 - 40000!!

Thank you Paddy, but this does not overcome the problem where 20000 will be in the range to have an indicator of 10 and 30000 will be in the range to have an indicator of 20 and so on.

I thought that the nested "IF" command would overcome this problem, but I will be guided by your expertise.

Many Thanks

In general, you relate one item to another using one of the lookup functions. (I only went down the floor() route 'cos I din't read your question properly!) This includes number ranges. This approach is preferable to using if's for at least 2 reasons - you aren't restricted by the 7 nested ifs limit; it forces you to keep you comparison bands etc out on the spreadsheet, not hidden away in the formulas (good for future maintenance,auditing etc).

See the simulation:
Book6
ABCDE
1BandReturnDataResult
20010
310000101100010
420001202000120
530001403050040
64000040
79999940
8
Sheet3


Notes:

1) =VLOOKUP(D2,A1:B5,2,1)

The 1 at the end tells the vlookup to search for the closest match, not an exact one.

2) In the bands, put the lowest number in the band in col A...



Does this help?

try the following Ensure that what you worded is what you require. Test the formula.

=LOOKUP(A2,{0,10000,20001,30001;0,10,20,40})

You can certainly put the Lookup information in a Table on the ss.
