# Excel/expanding an if/and formula

Question
Hi Tom

=IF(AND(\$EC\$340=101,\$EF\$337=\$BA\$10),EF340)

My formula says if cell 340 is equal to 101 and cell ef337 is equal to cell ba10 return whatever is written in cell EF340.

I would like to add several more if conditions and outcomes to this formula.

So if:
ec340=102 the formula returns en340
ec340=103 the formula returns ev340
ec340=104 the formula returns fd340
ec340=105 the formula returns fl340
ec340=106 the formula returns ft340

Can this be achieved in a single formula?

Chris Mitchell,

One way if the condition \$EF\$337=\$BA\$10  governs all further tests then

=IF(\$EF\$337=\$BA\$10,CHOOSE(\$EC\$340-100,EF340,EN340,EV340,FD340,FL340,FT340))

or

=IF(\$EF\$337=\$BA\$10,IF(\$EC\$340=101,EF340,IF(\$EC\$340=102,EN340,IF(\$EC\$340=103,EV340,IF(\$EC\$340=104,FD340,IF(\$EC\$340=105,FL340,IF(\$EC\$340=106,FT340)))))))

the first formula will return #Value if EC340 does not contain a value in the range (101 - 106)
so if you want it to return False under that condition like your original formula and the second formula then you can do

=IFERROR(IF(\$EF\$337=\$BA\$10,CHOOSE(\$EC\$340-100,EF340,EN340,EV340,FD340,FL340,FT340)),False)
