##### New Member
Hi

Can you please help me shorten this formula so excel can accept it without giving an error?

(" The specified formula can not be entered because it uses more than 64 levels of nesting").

Thanks for your kind cooperation.

Just noticed this old question in the 'Similar threads' at the bottom of another thread I was responding to.

A formula with no information to back it up gives us little to work with, but theoretically you should be able to cut that formula down to something like this.
Excel Formula:
``=--((SUMPRODUCT(([[@74]:[@2]]<>"")*(([[@74]:[@2]]>=3.5*[[@73]:[@1]])+([[@74]:[@2]]>=3.5*[[@72]:[@0]])))+AND([@1]<>"",[@1]>=3.5*[@0]))>0)``
