Prev: protect cell formatNext: Diff in business days From: Cerealkiller via OfficeKB.com on 3 May 2010 16:07 I have Excel 2000 so these problems are more than 7 levels is there a way to make them shorter. I did make a vlookup for them but if I have to move the cell then I have to re-reference that vlookup so I figured a formula would be easier if it is possible. Thank you for any help that you can provide. =IF(E4="",0,IF((E4="F"),8,IF((E4="D"),4,IF((E4="T"),2,IF((E4="S"),1,IF( (E4="M"),0,IF((E4="L"),-1,IF((E4="H"),-2,IF((E4="G"),-4,IF((E4="C"),-8,"ERR")) )))))))) =IF(E4="",0,IF((E4="F"),8,IF((E4="D"),4,IF((E4="T"),2,IF((E4="S"),1,IF( (E4="M"),0,IF((E4="L"),1,IF((E4="H"),2,IF((E4="G"),4,IF((E4="C"),8,"ERR")))))) )))) -- Message posted via http://www.officekb.com From: Fred Smith on 3 May 2010 16:10 What was wrong with all the responses to your previous posts?

These have mutiable numbers that they reference and not two cells. So maybe the other would work but I am not sure on how to make them work.

So it looks like a vlookup is the only way but thank you for your response. Vlookup will be a better solution for this. Just reference the table as an absolute reference, or NAME it. --ron Fred Smith wrote:>What was wrong with all the responses to your previous posts?

Built-in "spare" hidden columns are also very useful later for expanding a spreadsheet, especially if you have macros that work along rows collecting data.
