Can someone please take a look at my nested IF statement & advise what I am doing wrong?

Options

The formula works fine when I use only 1 condition. Once I add the 2nd condition & choose it's value from the dropdown list, the column for the resulting date (same column for both conditions) returns a blank for its result, . This happens regardless of which condition I begin the formula with ("<10" or "10 or >').

The simple logic:

Formula results are displayed in column Date Project Quote Expected. This result is a WORKDAY that is either 5 or 10 workdays later than the date in the Actual Date of Site Visit column (depending upon the value selected in dropdown of the # Doors column.

=IF([# Doors]@row = "<10", WORKDAY([Actual Date of Site Visit]@row, +5, IF([# Doors]@row = "10 or >", WORKDAY([Actual Date of Site Visit]@row, +10))))

What am I doing wrong that is impacting the 2nd condition?

    Hi @Bill Calder

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this. (You were missing the closing parenthesis for Holidays, and one to many parenthesis in the end)

    =IF([# Doors]@row = "<10", WORKDAY([Actual Date of Site Visit]@row, 5), IF([# Doors]@row = "10 or >", WORKDAY([Actual Date of Site Visit]@row, 10)))

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!

    Best,
