RYG formula in response to a numbered cell
I am having a bit of trouble figuring out how to write a formula to automate RYG symbols. Basically I want the rules to be as follows:
1. If value is less than 4, RED
2. If value is greater than 4 but less than 6, YELLOW
3. If value is greater than 6, GREEN
So far I have figured out how to do a single formula for 1 & 3 (written in the format of: =IF([13Mar]1 > 6, "Green"), but not combined in the same cell and I have not at all figured out how to write the formula for 2.
I hope that all makes sense... I can clarify further if needed.
Any guidance will be extremely appreciated!

Try this, I got a variation in my sheet to work
=IF([13Mar]1 <4, "Red", IF([13Mar]1 =5, "Yellow", IF([13Mar]1 >6, "Green")))

Hi!
What your are looking for is Nested If. In your case, this would look like :
"= IF([13Mar]1 > 6, "Green", IF([13Mar]1 > 4, "Yellow", "Red") ) "
Your should read this like : If [13Mar]1 > 6 then Green, ElseIf [13Mar]1 > 4 then Yellow, Else Red.
Hope this helps!

That was exactly what I needed!
Thank you so much! You're a lifesaver!
