i have this long formula.

=IF(OR(AND(A2=1,B2=9),AND(A2=2,B2=12),AND(A2=3,B2=18),AND(A2=4,B2=15),AND(A2=5,B2=22),AND(A2=6,B2=95),AND(A2=12,B2=19),AND(A2=42,B2=52)),"","Ok")

is there any easy way or more simplistic way to achieve the same without these too many ORs and ANDs ? or make it work in a better way.

One way....

=IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(A2&B2,{"19","212","318","415","522","695","1219","4252"},0)),"","OK")

Hi,

pls try
=IF(MAX((A2={1,2,3,4,5,6,12,42})+(B2={9,12,18,15,22,95,19,52}))=2,"","Ok")

Rgonzo's formula can be simplified as below...

=IF(MAX((A2={1,2,3,4,5,6,12,42})*(B2={9,12,18,15,22,95,19,52})),"","Ok")
