Excel/If Command problems mind has gone blank
My mind has gone blank with the simple if command
I have a cell that can have up to number 1 to 5 and depending on which number is stated i want a text statement for each individual number and i cant think of how to do it.
This is what i have so far
=IF(F7=1,"Standard must be improved"),IF(F7=2,"Below average accepted standard"),IF(F7=3,"Average good accepted standard"),IF(F7=4,"Above average good standard"),IF(F7=5,"Superior Standard","Not answered")
However this keeps coming back with an error and i cant figure it out
Can you help
Ive been looking at this for three days
The IF statement is
In your case, the value if false is another if statement - so you don't close the brackets until the very end - which means a lot of brackets all together - like this
=IF(F7=1,"Standard must be improved",IF(F7=2,"Below average accepted standard",IF(F7=3,"Average good accepted standard",IF(F7=4,"Above average good standard",IF(F7=5,"Superior Standard","Not answered")))))
You MAY want to consider using a vlookup instead
where TestList is a 2 column table with the score (including zero) in the first column and the text to display in the second.
