# Excel - Nested If

Please offer why the following is not working:

=IF(I2<2000,"\$2000",IF(2000<=I2<=6000,I2,IF(I2>6000,"\$6000")))

Basically, if the amount is below 2000, the resulting output is 2000.

If the value is >= 2000 and <= 6000, the value is from cell I2

If the value is greater than 6000, the resulting output will be 6000.

Thank you.

Although the question is closed a simpler approach could be

=max(min(i2,"\$6000"),"\$2000")
