add additional step to current if formula

Hi Experts excel 2007

I meed to amend the current if formula to include the following step..

=if (f2="ms comm","ccs", if (f2 <>"ms comm", j2,"")) works fine

So if j2 =2 then rrr if j2 =1 then sss otherwise ""

Hi Rob H

Sorry should have included if j2 =0 then blank. ..

Just getting used to the mew site...

=IF(F2="ms comm","ccs",IF(J2=0,"",IF(J2=1,"sss","rrr")))

If you start to have more values for J2, it might be worth setting up a small lookup table to return the relevant value for J2, eg:

0     {blank}
1    sss
2    rrr

This won't work if you truly want the result for J2 being zero to be blank. Leaving the cell blank will return a zero when looking up the zero. To get over that enter a space or just an apostrophe. However, if you have subsequent formulas that rely on the result of this being blank will have to be adapted to allow for the space or apostrophe.
