Multiple IF functions in one formula

New Contributor

Hi, I am new here and I have a problem with a project regarding a formula. Excel is saying #Value, which off course is not a good sign.

 

I have a list with values below each other from: 1 to 25 (25 = max). 

The classification is as follows:

< 6 = Low

between 5 and 12 = Medium

> 12 = High

 

What I want Excel to do: Suppose in cell B2 there is the value 9, then in cell C2 there should be the result according to the classification. Result in C2 will then be: Medium.

 

Antother example: In cell B2 is the value 4, than in cell C2 Excel should be showing: Low.

 

The used formula (which is fault):

=IF(AND(M4>=5;M4<=12);"Medium")*(IF(M4<=6;"Low")*(IF(M4>=12;"High")))

 

Row      Risk number (B)         Risk in words (C)       

 

2                    12                                  High

3                     4                                   Low

4                     9                                   Medium

 

If above is not possible in Excel, please let me know. It would be much appreciated. 

 

Sincerely,

=IF(AND(M4>=5,M4<=12),"Medium",IF(M4<=6,"Low",IF(M4>=12,"High")))

Maybe like this.

You mentioned "between 5 and 12" = medium and ">12" = high. So 12 should be medium.

(Also, I think it should be "between 6 and 12")

You can use

=LOOKUP(B2;{1\6\13};{"Low"\"Medium"\"High"})

or create a lookup list:

And use either

=VLOOKUP(B2;$G$2:$H$4;2)

or

=XLOOKUP(B2;$G$2:$G$4;$H$2:$H$4;"")

The advantage of the lookup list is that it's easy to change the thresholds - you have to do it only in one place instead of in each formula.

Yes that worked. Many thanks for the help!
Hi Hans, I think you are right about the classification. Well I am working as a quality assurance officer and a quality standard such as IFS (perhaps known) made the classification themself. I think not right as I may believe now.

So about the Excel. My thanks for the quick reply. I will try the above in my worksheet.

Please apply the simple formula
=IF(A1<=5,"Low",IF(AND(A1>=6,A1<12),"Medium",IF(A1>=12,"High",0))) or
=IFS(A1<=5,"Low",AND(A1>=6,A1<12),"Medium",A1>=12,"High",TRUE,0)
It depends on range, need to design from start of range and end of range.

Goodmorning,

 

Many thanks for the reply. When I was reading your formula, it sounded very logical to me. Only too late
