=IF(F5=AR5," ",IF(F5=AS5,AT5,IF(F5=AW5,AX5,IF(F5=BA5,BB5,IF(F5=BE5,BF5,IF(F5=BI5,BJ5,IF(F5=BM5,BN5,IF(F5=BQ5,BR5))))))))

Trying to add to the formula but getting the nesting message.

Hi,

pls try
``````=IF(F5=AR5," ",IF(F5=AS5,AT5,"")&IF(F5=AW5,AX5,"")&IF(F5=BA5,BB5,"")&IF(F5=BE5,BF5,"")&IF(F5=BI5,BJ5,"")&IF(F5=BM5,BN5,"")&IF(F5=BQ5,BR5,""))

This appears to be a duplicate

It would help if you give some more information:

What sort of value is in F5 (is it a number)
Can F5 match more than one value in the row?
What's in the intermediate cells like AU5 and AV5?

regards, barry

The breaking up of the formula worked. I apologize for the duplicate. I did not put the nesting error and I should have.
