=IFS(C14=YEAR(D8),(E8/H3),C14=YEAR(D9),(E9/H4),C14=YEAR(D10),(E10/H5))


Above is my formula that is not working.
I am trying to get a spreadsheet that automatically distributes the budget evenly based on each year by month. Does anyone have advice on how to correct my formula?

IFS is not a formula. If you want a nested if, in the "if false" section you need to put IF(logic test, if true, if false)

The formula I provided should give you a blank cell if it does not equal any of those cells

If it has to be one of those cells, this formula will also work for you

=IF(C14=YEAR(D8),(E8/H3),IF(C14=YEAR(D9),(E9/H4),E10/H5))

The IFS function checks whether one or more conditions are met, and returns a value that corresponds to the first TRUE condition. IFS can take the place of multiple nested IF statements, and is much easier to read with multiple conditions.

Well, learn something new everyday. I've only got the 2013 version. A better nested if function would have been nice a year ago when i was setting stuff up

Well, I don't know how to give you an ifs formula since i can't play with it, but the one i provided should work.

But in C14 do you have a date?
In D8 you only have the year?

Then
This:
C14=YEAR(D8)

Should be:
YEAR(C14) = D8

Do you need to compare cell by cell or rather look for the year of C14 in a range of cells D8: D10 and get the value of column E?

Going off his table and the labels, D8 is a date. I didn't realize he's also got dates where C14 should go. If dates are in C14, this is the way to go

=IF(YEAR(C14)=YEAR(D8),(E8/H3),IF(YEAR(C14)=YEAR(D9),(E9/H4),IF(YEAR(C14)=YEAR(D10),(E10/H5),"")))

or in your original format

=IFS(YEAR(C14)=YEAR(D8),(E8/H3),YEAR(C14)=YEAR(D9),(E9/H4),YEAR(C14)=YEAR(D10),(E10/H5))

Hello,

Thank you both for your help. It is working now!

Yes, I have a date in C14 (Now D14 after adding in a column to separate the year from the 12/5/19 date)
I also created a column with a monthly budget rate instead of dividing it in the formula(400,000/1 month - AKA E8/H3).


=IF($D14=($E$8),($J$3),IF($D14=($E$9),($J$4),IF($D14=($E$10),($J$5),"")))

Thanks again,

RCAAA
