# Multiple (8+) IF Statements

#### AYelverton

##### New Member
I am trying to produce a formula that will enable me to determine what period a date falls into within defined 28 day boundries

In column A I have the start date of each period, in column B the end date for each period. In C the period number.

For example

01/05/04 28/05/04 1

In L I have a list of dates that will a random date

In M I wish it to return what period that date falls into (1-13)

Typically I would use a multiple IF statement but as this is not possible for over 8 functions I am struggling to identify what is required

Thanks
Anthony

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)
Hi Anthony, welcome to the board!

Not sure I follow how your data is laid out entirely. But have a look at the VLOOKUP and INDEX/MATCH functions. They may be of use to you. If you need more, try posting a representative sample of your data using the HTML Maker (link at the bottom of the page).

Hi Anthony,

Someone asked me this question today - was it you?

Assuming your date periods don't overlap, i.e. each period starts the day after the previous one finishes and that they are in ascending order then in M1 use =VLOOKUP(L1,A1:C32,3,1) and fill down.

HTH

Please below... Its not the exact layout but you can get the jist..
The column with the dates listed would typically be more random.

Sheet2

Formula in E1 is : =VLOOKUP(D1,\$A\$1:\$C\$32,3,1) copied down

Hi again,

Formula in E1 should be =VLOOKUP(D1,\$A\$1:\$C\$13,3,1)

I added two more dates outside period 1 to see if it worked.

Thanks guys

The data supplied was only a sample and you are right to assume that it will be for other periods.

I think this was one of those cases when I was trying to look for a high powered function when the answer was under my nose the whole time!!

Anthony
