hi experts, id like some help with the following formula

=if(or(c12=c6,c12=c7),"m2",if(c12=c8,c12=c9,c12=c10,c12=c11),"lm",""))

basically if c12= c6 or c7 then show "m2" and if c12 = c8, c9, c10 or c11 then show "lm"

What result did you get with Brad's (byundt) formula? I can't see how it would not work for what you describe - unless your excel version is actually 2003 or earlier?

Please post a sample workbook that demonstrates the formula not working.

Agree with byundt and rorya - byundt's solution should work.

Points to byundt please, but I did want to post an alternative using the CHOOSE function that might be useful when the criteria set is greater than two conditions:

- if C12= C6, then "m2"
- if C12=C7, then "q9"
- if C12 = C8, then "lm"
- if C12 = C9, then "lmno"
- if C12 = C10 or C11, then "xyz"

=CHOOSE(MATCH(C12,C6:C11,0),"m2","q9","lm","lmno","xyz","xyz")

This is the equivalent of the CASE function in other programming languages.
