Problem with IF formula

Copper Contributor

I am trying to get column S to list pickup days if columns N, O, P, Q, R have a value in them. My formula =IF(N2<>"","M, ",IF(O2<>"","T, ",IF(P2<>"","W, ",IF(Q2<>"","H, ",IF(R2<>"","F, ",""))))) is only returning the first value. Cell S2 should say M, W, and cell S6 should say T, F, for example

With Office 365 or Excel for the web you can apply this formula.


@mkglen I have never seen the IF statement used that way, but here is a solution that nests if statements inside of the CONCAT function. =CONCAT(IF(N2<>"","M, ",""),IF(O2<>"","T, ",""),IF(P2<>"","W, ",""),IF(Q2<>"","TH, ",""),IF(R2<>"","F",""))



For non web or 365 users you could shorten this to
I am using Excel 2016 so I had to use CONCATENATE but that worked. Thank you!
