=IF(ED2="SCC","SCC",IF(LARGE(V2:$AG2,3)>Analysis!$D$32,"High",IF(LARGE(V2:AG2,3)<Analysis!$E$32,"Low","Medium")))

Hi,

this IF works nicely for me but i have just realised a flaw, i can only check against the large value of D32 + E32 if column D2 = 2

And to add, if column D2 = 1,3,4,5 or 6, i must check against D31 + E31
                   if column D2 <> 2,1,3,4,5 OR 6 then i must check against D33 + E33

---------------------

So, my formula must first check to see the client type in column D, then get the large number from the array, then based on client type, check the large number against

D31/E31
D32/E32
D33/E33
 
Thanks
Seamus

so why not create an extra column which produces the correct sum ...

e.g. az2  =iif(d2 = 2 , d32+e32,iif(d2=1 or d2=3 or d2=4 or d2=5 or d2=6 , d31+e31,d33+e33))

and then just use the az2 value in your existing formula...

Do you mean?

=IF(ED2="SCC","SCC",IF(LARGE(V2:$AG2,3)>IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(D2,{1,3,4,5,6},0)),Analysis!$D$31,IF(D2=2,Analysis!$D$32,Analysis!$D$33)),"High",IF(LARGE(V2:AG2,3)<>IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(D2,{1,3,4,5,6},0)),Analysis!$E$31,IF(D2=2,Analysis!$E$32,Analysis!$E$33)),"Low","Medium")))

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Sorry Seamus, not sure how I inserted a <>, should be <

here is the updated formula:

=IF(ED2="SCC","SCC",IF(LARGE(V2:$AG2,3)>IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(D2,{1,3,4,5,6},0)),Analysis!$D$31,IF(D2=2,Analysis!$D$32,Analysis!$D$33)),"High",IF(LARGE(V2:AG2,3)<IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(D2,{1,3,4,5,6},0)),Analysis!$E$31,IF(D2=2,Analysis!$E$32,Analysis!$E$33)),"Low","Medium")))
