I want to try an nest an IF so i can have several conditions on a cell.

is there a formula possible for the below assumptions?

((IFA2=9 or 10, then = 1, IF(A2=7,8, or 12, then =2, IF(A2=3,or 4, then =3, IF(A2=5,6, or 13, then = 4))

Thanks

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

Nested IF for below would be:
Rich (BB code):
=IF(OR(A2=9, A2=10),1,IF(OR(A2=7,A2=8,A2=12),2,IF(OR(A2=3,A2=4),3,IF(OR(A2=5,A2=6,A2=13),4,"Default"))))
Default is when nothing matches, though you can change that to anything you want.
However, I'd be more tempted to create a table with numbers 1 to 13 in one column and the required value next to them, e.g.

1 Default
2 Default
3 3
4 3
5 4
6 4
7 2
8 2
9 1
10 1
11 Default
12 2
13 4

And then use a VLOOKUP formula based on this table instead of a nested IF formula. It would make changing values easier too.

Try something like...

=LOOKUP(A2,{0,3,5,7,9,11,12,13},{"?",3,4,2,1,"??",2,4})
