I need to use logic statements to determine fee for a service depending on age and gender

I have the following source table:

                                  M        F
Less than 18 years             100      80
18 to 35                              200      170
More than 35 years             300      270      


where gender will be in column B, age in column C, and fee amount in column D
so i basically need a function that'll read something like:

if  (B1 = "F") then
    if (C1  < 18) then 80
    else if (C1>=18 or C1 <=35) then 170
    else 270
else if (B1 = "M") then
    if (C1  < 18) then 100
    else if (C1>=18 or C1 <=35) then 200
    else 300



please assist?

Try this:
=IF(B1="F", (IF(C1<18, 80, IF(OR(C1>=18, C1<=35), 170, 270))), IF(B1="M", IF(C1<18, 100, IF(OR(C1>=18, C1<=35), 200, 300))))

Dan,
It works ok, but does not satisfy condition of genders where age is > 35

That's because I replicated your algorithm that has a flaw :)
=IF(B1="F", (IF(C1<18, 80, IF(AND(C1>=18, C1<=35), 170, 270))), IF(B1="M", IF(C1<18, 100, IF(AND(C1>=18, C1<=35), 200, 300))))

You need an AND to test for between...
