I am trying to come up with formula that will appear in column G that depends on entries in columns  B and C. There are only 2 permissable entries in column B (A or B). There are 4 permissisable entries in column C (P, A, S, or D).

Anyone up to the challenge?

I've tried to do this by nesting if functions but can't get past 2 nested functions.

I would solve this with SWITCH(). There are certainly countless variations.





I liked your response, however it doesn't give the correct result in cell D5. I edited and came up with a potential solution that seems to work, but I did get a circular reference warning. Below is a screen shot showing what your suggestion yielded and beneath is what I came up. Note I simplified the setup for editing efficiency.

@dscheikey That didn't work. But this did since there were only 2 input variables in column B (A orB), but 4 in column C (P, C, S, D). Using If and Switch worked perfectly without having to nest:
