Appreciate if someone could advice me the reason I am getting this error for IFS function?

@choongko Try it this way:




in C2 and copy it down.


This is what the Help screen says about the use of the IFS function:

"The IFS function checks whether one or more conditions are met, and returns a value that corresponds to the first TRUE condition."



Strange, I am still getting the same error.

@choongko Then your Excel version probably doesn't support the IFS function. From the help screens, this is what it says:


"Note: This feature is available on Windows or Mac if you have Office 2019, or if you have a Microsoft 365 subscription"


So, if IFS doesn't work in your Excel version you are stuck with regular nested IF functions. 


EDIT: Should have seen this from the start as the #NAME? error indicates that Excel doesn't recognise something as a valid function. But I just copied your original formula into a mock-up schedule and got a different error. Then I focussed on resolving that error in stead of addressing the name error.
