I am struggling with a formula, I was hoping to use nested if's however I need more than seven if statements and excel cannot process over 7. What can I do ? I tried (=IF(AND(B:B="Yes",A:A>5),"High Risk") which is fine for a two answer result so I thought what if I nest these ? (=IF(AND(B:B="Yes",A:A>5),"High Risk"),IF(AND(D:D="Yes",A:A>5),"High Risk") that didn't work out so well I got "#VALUE!" so I tried the same with IF(OR and got the same results.

Column A is how many floors in the building and columns B-E is the type of installation and below is the example of how they are split between risks Low to High.

High Risk If A>5 and B=Yes, If A>5 and D=Yes

Medium Risk If A<6 and B=Yes, If A<6 and D=Yes, If A>5 and C=Yes, IF A>5 and B=No, C=No, D=No, E=No

Low Risk If A <6 and C=Yes, If E=Yes, IF A<6 and B=No, C=No, D=No, E=No below is the sheet with the formulas I have already tried and their results, I have 7000 in total to risk score.

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

Presumably if it's not high risk or medium risk it's low risk?
If so you don't specifically need to define the low risk options, this may work

=IF(AND(A2>5,OR(B2="YES",D2="YES")),"High Risk",IF(OR(AND(A2<6,OR(B2="YES",D2="YES")),AND(A2>5,C2="YES"),AND(A2>5,B2="NO",C2="NO",D2="NO",E2="NO")),"Medium Risk","Low Risk"))
