Hello Experts,

I have an error with the below:  "Too many arguments"
Do you see where I have the error?  
Any cleanup modifications are welcome.  

=IF(k6="USD",Z6,IF(K6="SAR",VLOOKUP(X6,ExchangeRates_tony,2)*Z6),IF(k6="EUR",VLOOKUP(X6,ExchangeRates_tony,2),IF(K6="GBP",VLOOKUP(X6,ExchangeRates_tony,2)*Z6),IF(K6="JPY",VLOOKUP(x6,ExchangeRates_tony,2)*Z6))

thank you

It should be like this....

=IF(K6="USD",Z6,IF(K6="SAR",VLOOKUP(X6,ExchangeRates_tony,2)*Z6,IF(K6="EUR",VLOOKUP(X6,ExchangeRates_tony,2),IF(K6="GBP",VLOOKUP(X6,ExchangeRates_tony,2)*Z6,IF(K6="JPY",VLOOKUP(X6,ExchangeRates_tony,2)*Z6,"")))))

The same formula can be written as below since all your calculations are same for currencies other than USD.

=IF(K6="USD",Z6,VLOOKUP(X6,ExchangeRates_tony,2)*Z6)

Thank you.  I have a follow up though.  I am not getting the correct exchange rate.   Do you see anything that might cause?  I have to run outside for a bit and will be back after while.   if it matters, X6 if a vlookup itself.  

thank you

You are using the approximate range lookup in Vlookup formula, so that might be a cause.
You may try the exact match with the following formula....

VLOOKUP(X6,ExchangeRates_tony,2,FALSE)
