I am not familiar with how to nest but I believe that is what I need to do. I have a column titled "Stage". The column has three different options. They are high likelihood, medium likelihood and low likelihood. I need to have a separate column that is either 75%, 50% or 25% depending on which likelihood is in the stage column. Any suggestions?

    Try something like this.

    Remember to format the cells/columns where you want to use the formula with the percentage format.

    =IF(Stage@row = "high likelihood"; 0,75; IF(Stage@row = "medium likelihood"; 0,5; IF(Stage@row = "low likelihood"; 0,25)))

    The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.

    =IF(Stage@row = "high likelihood", 0.75, IF(Stage@row = "medium likelihood", 0.5, IF(Stage@row = "low likelihood", 0.25)))

    Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did it work?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic weekend & Happy New Year!
