IF formula

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.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

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

With commas instead:

=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.
