I have recently started exploring Excel and have run into a problem. Just last week, I didn't know what arrays were, but i have come to better understand them these last few days. Understanding (admittedly to a limited degree) arrays have opened many useful doors including the use of the index function to make dynamic charts. An example of a formula I am working with is included below:
**"Room" is defined as $N$7:$N$25
**"Status" is defined as $O$7:$O$25
**"$AA$1" contains the text "Inhouse"
**"$AA$2" contains the text "Out"
I was wondering if there was a way to consolidate the OR(Status=$AA$1,Status=$AA$2) section, just in case I wanted to have Status=$AA$3, Status=$AA$4, etc. I would really prefer not to type each out and was wondering if there was a way this could be avoided.
You could do
to replace your OR statement.
But if you meant could you do
OR(STATUS=$AA1:$AA4) then the answer would be no.
