Greater than equal to formula

In column a I have credits listed, I would like to write a formula that if the number in column a is greater than 12, 1 will display in column b if the number is 9 or greater .75 will display  and less than 9 but greater than 3 .5 display less than 3 0 displays.

and here the example.

BTW there might be a more elegant way, possibly with a macro function, but the distribution of values is a little bit non-linear which would make it complex to fit into a math expression.

A macro function would simply reflect the logic in the formula above, using some VBA construct like if-elseif-elseif-else.

If you receive an error with the semicolons, use:


With this example, 12 would display as ".075".  If this is supposed to be greater than or equal to, you would need to use:

About the semicolons (the're the usual separators in german language Excel): If you check the formula in the example, it will perfectly fit your national formula notation.

When submitted through a workbook, Excel should automatically adjust them.

When typing in a formula, the semicolons will be rejected and error the formula.

Just an FYI, nothing more.

You could also do it with a small lookup table.

Col e     Col f
0           0
3           0.5
9           0.75
12         1


I have deliberately left the fourth parameter blank so that it finds a close match without going greater than.
