What do you have in the mapping table, and what does "c2 return ignore" mean? Return C2, or return ignore?

=if(and(a2="closed",b2=""),c2,RefToMappingTable)

What about the other combinations of options for A2 & B2?

1) A2 = Closed, B2 = blank - Returns Ignore
2) A2 = Closed, B2 <> blank - ?
3) A2 <> Closed, B2 = blank - ?
4) A2 <> Closed, B2 <> Blank - Reference mapping table

You have covered options 1 & 4, could the others occur?

Thanks
