Hi All,

Please let me know if I am thinking correctly or if I am totally wrong. below is what I am trying to make happen and I am with the limited excel knowledge I have, I am thinking my only logical way is to do a nesting IF but this will most likely be the longest IF in history lol and I am not sure if I can pull it off or if it will even work.

If A2 is billable and B2 is Mail and D2 is Y , then I need H2 = C2+E2+G2
If A2 is Billable and B2 is electronic and D2 is Y, Then I need H2 = E2 + F2
If A2 is Non-Billable and D2 is N, then H2 = 0
If A2 is Non-Billable and D2 is Y, then H2 = 10


Please advise
 

Excel Facts

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

Phew! Maybe:

Code:
=IF(AND(A2="billable",NOT(ISERROR(FIND("Mail",B2))),D2="y"),C2+E2+G2,IF(AND(A2="billable",NOT(ISERROR(FIND("Electronic",B2))),D2="y"),E2+F2,IF(AND(A2="non-billable",D2="n"),0,10)))

NOTE: The FIND function is case-sensitive, so Mail and Electronic have to have 1st letter in upper-case in the B column or change the IF statement.

You seem to have left out a lot of cases. For example, is "Mail or Electronic" a valid code, or just an indication of both possibilities? But if I understand the underlying rules correctly, you might get away with something like this:

=IF(A2="Billable",(D2="Y")*E2+IF(B2="Mail",C2+G2,F2),0)
