# SharePoint List - Calculated formula

Hi

I am trying to import my risk register to a SharePoint list and need a formula that looks at columns based on their PESTLE analysis to assign it a 'Low, Medium or High' score.

My formula based on the PESTLE column isn't working, below;

=IF([PESTLE]=Political,"High",
IF(AND([PESTLE]=Economic,"Medium",
IF(AND([PESTLE]=Sociological,"Medium",
IF(AND([PESTLE]=Technological,"Medium",
IF(AND([PESTLE]=Legal,"Low"
,IF([PESTLE]=Enviromental,"Low"))))))

thanks
Lee

@leecoogan Try using this formula:

``=IF([PESTLE]="Political","High",IF(OR([PESTLE]="Economic",[PESTLE]="Sociological",[PESTLE]="Technological"),"Medium",IF(OR([PESTLE]="Legal",[PESTLE]="Enviromental"),"Low","")))``

@leecoogan the logic of the formula is wrong; you are using AND so you are currently basically saying in the formula "IF Pestle equals Economic AND Pestle equals Sociological AND Pestle equals Technological AND Pestle equals Legal which I assume it never can" Assuming the PESTLE column will only have 1 value you can simplify the formula to the following:

=IF(PESTLE="Political", "High", IF(OR(PESTLE="Economic", PESTLE="Sociological", PESTLE="Technological"), "Medium", "Low"))
