# IF formula

Posted on 2014-10-17

Collumn AB on the attached "combined" sheet contains a number.

I need a formula in the neighbouring cell AC to perform the following;

IF AB(...) = 11 return "Platinum"
IF AB(..) >=9<11 return "Gold"
IF AB(..)>=7<9 return "Silver"
IF AB(...)>=6<7 return "Bronze"
IF AB (...)<6 return "Poor Performer"

Hopefully this should be fairly straight forward.

Copy the below formula to the cell AC:2 and then drag it till the end of AC column:
``````=IF(AB2<6;"Poor Performer";IF(AB2<7;"Bronze";IF(AB2<9;"Silver";IF(AB2<11;"Gold";"Platinum"))))
``````

This is returning an error and highlighting the first number "6" in the sequence of the formula

Alternatively setup a small table as per below:

0      Poor Performer
6      Bronze
7      Silver
9      Gold
1000000      Platinum

Then use a lookup formula:

=VLOOKUP(AB2,\$A\$2:\$B\$6,2)

A2:B6 being the table above.

Maybe Vitor's suggestion is not working because his locale uses the semicolon in formulae rather than a comma.

=IF(AB2<6,"Poor Performer",IF(AB2<7,"Bronze",IF(AB2<9,"Silver",IF(AB2<11,"Gold","Platinum"))))

Thanks

Robmarr, check if you copied all characters. Or you can post here your Excel file so I can check it for you.

Yes, Regional Settings. For us comma it's used for decimal numbers so we need to use ';' for separate parameters.
