# Re: excel if calculations

try:

=IFS(B3=1,M8,B3=2,N8,B3=3,O8)

# Re: excel if calculations

=IF(B3=1,M8,IF(B3=2,N8,O8))

Thanks

It could be

``=CHOOSE(B3,M8,N8,O8)``

or

``=INDEX(M8:O8,B3)``

Thank you @Sergei Baklan

CHOOSE works great

# Re: excel if calculations

Thank you @finaly

I have 20 rows i need to apply this too, when I drag the calculation down the rows it obviously changes the B3 to B4 and so on, I need the B3 input to remain constant where the M N & O can ascend, any suggestions?

# Re: excel if calculations

In any of above formulas use absolute reference for B3 and relative one for others, like

``=CHOOSE(\$B\$3,\$M8,\$N8,\$O8)``
