# Excel Select Box IF statement question

On excel sheet "LVL Test Data pg 1" cells J8, K8 & L8 are sample test times.

If an "X" is in cells J9, K9 or L9 (only one cell can have an "X") it needs to reference excel sheet "Patterns" rows: E thru M

"Patterns" Excel Sheet                              Name Relation on Excel Sheet "LVL Test Data pg 1"

Columns   Test name

E                EdgeBend                                                Edge Bending                    A6
F                FlatBend                                                  Flat Bending                     C6
G               Tension                                                    Tension                              D6
H               MC                                                           Moisture Content            E6
I                GlueBond                                                Glue Bond Durability       G6
J                ABond                                                     A Bond Durability             I6
K              10H2                                                        10" H2 Specimen             K6

There is a numerical code in the  columns listed above associated with each pattern in row A they are:

0 = Never

1 = 24 hr, Start Up or C/O

2 = Always

If the thickness in row "D" "SpecBilletThick" on patterns is greater than "1.75" then a Tension test is not needed from row "G" from sheet "Patterns"

Based on whether there is a 0, 1 or 2 in the rows E thru M in excel sheet "Patterns"

an " X " needs to appear in excel sheet "LVL Test Data pg 1"

In cells A7, C7, D7, E7, G7, I7 or K7 in their name relation under the cell above.

what determines if a X is placed ?  always if 2, or if 1 and the code in J9-L9 matches ?

have you tried VLOOKUP ?

ASKER

A human will determine when an X is placed in one of the boxes based on what test is being performed. Only one test is performed per event. So if an X appears in any one of the three boxes the others have to auto populate per the values in the sheet patterns.

An X is only placed in the cells: J9, K9 or L9. Only one of these cells can contain an X.

If the thickness in "Spec. Thickness" (J4) is greater than 1.75 no value needs to populate D7 under Tension.

OK based on pattern 5004: If any one of the cells J9, K9 or L9 had an X. An X should appear in cells: C7, E7, G7, and I7

Based on pattern 7001: If any one of the cells J9, K9 or L9 had an X. An X should appear in cells: C7, D7, E7, G7 and A9.

Based on pattern 26000: If any one of the cells J9, K9 or L9 had an X.  An X should appear in cells: C7, D7, E7, G7 and D9.

Based on pattern 24316H: If any one of the cells J9, K9 or L9 had an X. An X should appear in cells: C7, D7, E7, G7, I7 and K7

Does this help?

I will try the lookup and if I can't make it work I'll post back. Thank you for the suggestion.
