Hi below is an if statement that I cnnot get to work for some reason.

the value returned from C71/C70 will be a decimal value.

that way it is know it only retuns 1 or 0

=IF(C71/C70>=1,"1",IF(C71/C70>=1.15,"2",IF(C71/C70>=1.3,3,IF
(C71/C70>="1.45",4,0))))

What's in C71 and C70?

What's the logic behind the formula?

Note that if the calculation is >=1 then the formula will immediately stop on the first If and the other parts of it won't get evaluated.

As Norie said, its the order of the formula.

If you want the answer to be "4" then reverse the order of the checks.

=IF(C71/C70>="1.45",4,IF(C71/C70>=1.3,3IF(C71/C70>=1.15,"2",IF
(C71/C70>=1,"1",0))))

You are also aware thatyou are returning a text value for 1 and 2 and numeric 0,3 and 4s?

The formula above will give
<0 >> 0 (numeric)
0-0.999999999999999 >> 0 (numeric)
1-1.149999999999999 >> 1 (text)
1.15-1.299999999999 >> 2 (text)
1.3-1.4499999999999 >> 3 (numeric)
1.45 and above >> 5 (numeric)

Also, try using a vlookup, set your lookup range in 2 columns.

In the first column, the values over which you want to return a different result and then in the second column what yuo want to return, making sure the values in the first column are in ascending order.

Then use =vlookup(C71/C70,look_up_range,2,1) the 1 at the end means the the lookup will look for the next highest match and give you the effect of >= in the if.
