# Conditional Statements

Posted on 2002-04-21

I am trying to figure out how to set up a script that will first check cell a14 and a21.  Basically, if a14 is between 5000 to 2000 or a21 is 030 to 020 then cell z14 will insert the word "blue". The hard part is that in cell a21 i have text letters before that number for example "ced030" what i need is to only evaluate that number in a21 when the first three letters equal aaa or bbb.  For example if a21 equal ced030 it will not evaluate the 030 in that cell.  But if it has aaa030, then it will evaluate the 030, which meets the criteria above and will insert the word "blue" into cell z14.  Thanks For the help

Hi Stormhunter2000,

you can use this formula in Z14

=IF(AND(A14>=2000,A14<=5000,OR(LEFT(A21,3)="aaa",LEFT(A21,3)="bbb"),(AND(VALUE(RIGHT(A21,3))>=20,VALUE(RIGHT(A21,3))<=30))),"blue","")

Bruintje, did you miss some part there?
I think it's supposed to be like this.

=IF(OR(AND(A14>=2000,A14<=5000),OR(LEFT(A21,4)="aaa0",LEFT(A21,4)="bbb0"), (IF(ISNUMBER(MID(A21,5,2)),(AND(VALUE(MID(A21,5,2))>=20,VALUE(MID(A21,5,2))<=30)),FALSE ))),"blue","")

OK VBA then

-insert a new module in your workbook
-paste this code

Public Sub CheckValuesSimple()
With ActiveSheet
If (.Range("A14") >= 2000 And .Range("A14") <= 5000) Then
If (Left(.Range("A21"), 3) = "aaa" Or (Left(.Range("A21"), 3) = "bbb")) Then
If (Val(Right(Range("A21"), 3)) >= 20 And Val(Right(Range("A21"), 3)) <= 30) Then
.Range("Z14") = "blue"
End If
End If
End If
End With
End Sub

-just run it

-a more generic solution

Public Sub CheckValuesDeluxe(ByVal rngOne As Range, _
ByVal rngTwo As Range, _
ByVal rngResult As Range)
With ActiveSheet
If (rngOne.Value >= 2000 And rngOne.Value <= 5000) Then
If (Left(rngTwo.Value, 3) = "aaa" Or (Left(rngTwo.Value, 3) = "bbb")) Then
If (Val(Right(rngTwo.Value, 3)) >= 20 And Val(Right(rngTwo.Value, 3)) <= 30) Then
rngResult.Value = "blue"
End If
End If
End If
End Sub

-if you put this function in a cell through the
