I am trying to do an =IF formula with multiple logical options: =IF(OR(A5=CRM!A5,"CRM",[A5=Affiliates!A5,"Affiliate"],[A5=Supplier!A5,"Supplier]) But it is not accepting and I can't see where I'm going wrong.

@Annalee2130 , what is the logic for OR in plain English? Perhaps you need nested IF like

=IF(A5=CRM!A5,"CRM",IF(A5=Affiliates!A5,"Affiliate",IF(A5=Supplier!A5,"Supplier","nothing from it"))))

 

@Sergei Baklan 

In plain English:

If Cell "ContactDetails"A5 is equal to Sheet "CRM"A5 then cell should fill as "CRM"

If Cell "ContactDetails"A5 is equal to Sheet "Affiliates"A5 then cell should fill as "Afilliates"

and

If Cell "ContactDetails"A5 is equal to Sheet "Suppliers"A5 then cell should fill as "Suppliers"

@Sergei Baklan 

Sorry - only saw your suggested formula after I replied - let me try this....

@Annalee2130 , it checks one by one and returns the value for first match

I am not sure what the square brackets were intended to be? An alternative to a nested IF that is available from Excel 2016 and on is the IFS function.

= IFS(

A5=CRM!A5, "CRM",

A5=Affiliates!A5, "Affiliate",

A5=Supplier!A5, "Supplier" )

@Peter Bartholomew , for IFS I'd add TRUE condition at the end if no one match
