Excel/Nest of More than 6


Here is what I have; I need to add three more to make a total of nine in the nest. Is that possible? If not, is there another way?


Thank you for your help!


In excel 2007 and later you can nest 64 deep so you could continue with your current nesting.

In earlier versions, you would need another approach. You could put a table in another location such as in A1:B9 of Sheet2

A1:  1  B1:  0.29
A2:  2  B2:  0
A3:  3  B3:  0
A4:  4  B4:  0.4

then you formula would be


or you could use choose

=choose(K14,0.29,0,0,0.4,0.28,0,value for 7, value for 8, value for 9)*K13
