Multiple IF function pull from multiple cells

I am working on a spend tracker and i am having trouble pulling currency conversions from other cells in the row.

I need the 'committed amount in USD' to pull from the correct currency conversion cell depending on the currency selected.

current formula i have that works with pulling from just one cell is -

=IF([email protected] = "KRW", [KRW to USD]@row)

how can i add to this to make it pull from other cells if the currency is different?

I have been trying this and it isnt working-

=IF([email protected] = "KRW", [KRW to USD]@row), IF([email protected] = "GBP" , [GBP to USD]@row)

can anyone help?!

    You are on the right track. It is just a minor syntax issue. When nesting IF functions, you leave the first one open and start the second in the "else" portion of the first. Then you start the third in the "else" portion of the second, so on and so forth. Then you close them all at the end.

    =IF(this is true, do this, IF(that is true, do that))

    =IF([email protected] = "KRW", [KRW to USD]@row, IF([email protected] = "GBP" , [GBP to USD]@row))


  • ah amazing, wow, so close haha. thank you so much -really big help.

    One more question whilst I have you here. The sheet I am creating is a temporary PO system - I am allowing other users to enter details onto the sheet (via form) to then receive a unique PO number based on the information they add in.

    Is there anyway to show results of a concatenated cell on a form (i.e. the PO number to appear on the form once required information has been entered on the form?)

    Hi Jasmine,

    Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment, but it's an excellent idea!

    A possible workaround, could be to use a third-party service. Is that an option?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic weekend & Happy Holidays!

  • Thanks Andre, i submitted the idea :-)

    When you say third party - is there a tool i can somehow add in to smartsheets that could solve this/generate a form with PO number and links back to my smartsheet?

    Or do you mean create the entire PO system with a third party?

    Happy to help!

    Yes, it would be an integration to Smartsheet. There are a few that probably could work for your use-case.

    Is that an option?
