Hi,

I want the selected cell in Column19 to pull through A, B, C, D, E or F if the search filed has a "1" in it. I have tried INDEX MATCH, nested IFS, but nothing seems to work. Closest I got was a 'No Match', but not sure why the corresponding letter was not pulling through.

This is all on the same sheet with columns either side of the fields I have pasted here.

Example:

Hope you can assist.

Thank you,

    =IF([Column13] = "F", "Name 1", IF([Column8] = 1, "A", IF([Column9] = 1, "B", IF([Column10] = 1, "C", IF([Column11] = 1, "D", IF([Column12] = 1, "E", IF([Column13] = 1, "F", "")))))))


    This will work as long as only one column contains "1". If you need to return multiple results, you will need a different approach. This should also be setup as a column formula and will retain the "Name 1" cell.
