Hi,

On row 15, i have an IF Statement highlighted red. It should be returning "Cleared" as its adjacent cel (BD15) is an error

What is wrong with the formula?
=IF(BD15="no change","No Change",IF(BD15="Changed","Re-assigned",IF(ISERROR(BD15),"Cleared","")))

Thanks

Seamus - I think you just have to turn round (not sure why):

=IF(ISERROR(BD15),"Cleared",IF(BD15="no change","No Change",IF(BD15="Changed","Re-assigned","")))

I think because BD15 is an error, it throws out the checks so Excel basically thinks the result is an error so doesn't check your whole formula.
