"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are you basically trying to see how many thousands there are?  If so:

=INT(A3/1000)

Something like this:

=CHOOSE(MATCH(A1,{0,1000,2000,3000},1),0,1,2,3)

Well, you could use nested IF statements, but I find those difficult to read and understand.  You could use VLOOKUP.

If you put these values into, say, A1:B10 on a worksheet named Lookup:

Start At      Value
-1.00E+99      N/A
1000      1
2000      2
3000      3
4000      4
5000      5
6000      6
7000      7
8000      N/A

You could then use a formula like this to retrieve the reported values:

=VLOOKUP(A2,Lookup!$A$2:$B$10,2)

See this file for an example of the above:
