# Error Check - Combining multiple IF/AND statements for calculation based status.

Options

Hello, hope you are having a great day, I have issues using IF/AND combinations in formulae. I am trying to get a status off the percentage calculated in a different field (percentage value) and keep getting this error that says - #INCORRECT ARGUMENT SET

This is my Formula- Details8 is the field where the percentage is calculated

=IF(Details8 = 0, "Not Started", IF(AND(Details8 >= 0.01, Details8 <= 0.59), "Below Expectations"), IF(AND(Details8 >= 0.6, Details8 <= 0.7), "Needs Improvement"), IF(AND(Details8 >= 0.8, Details8 <= 0.94), "Meeting Expectations"), IF(AND(Details8 >= 0.95, "Exceeding Expectations")))

Any and all assistance here would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Looks like your very last "AND statement is not necessary and may be the source of your error. Maybe try something like the following?

=IF(Details8 = 0, "Not Started", IF(AND(Details8 >= 0.01, Details8 <= 0.59), "Below Expectations"), IF(AND(Details8 >= 0.6, Details8 <= 0.7), "Needs Improvement"), IF(AND(Details8 >= 0.8, Details8 <= 0.94), "Meeting Expectations"), IF(Details8 >= 0.95, "Exceeding Expectations"))

Thank you, sir, I figured the AND was needed right after I posted this. Thank you so much it is working now.

To add - you're also closing your arguments off so it can't move on.

=IF(Details8 = 0, "Not Started", IF(AND(Details8 >= 0.01, Details8 <= 0.59), "Below Expectations", IF(AND(Details8 >= 0.6, Details8 <= 0.7), "Needs Improvement", IF(AND(Details8 >= 0.8, Details8 <= 0.94), "Meeting Expectations", IF(Details8 >= 0.95, "Exceeding Expectations"))
