# If then else function for ranges of values

Hi all,

For 0-8 sightings, I need the cell to display Emerging, 9-19 Developing, 20-39 Proficient, and 40+ Exemplary.

What's wrong with my formula?

=IF(SUM([Sightings in past two weeks]1:[Sightings in past two weeks]4) <= 8, "Emerging", IF(SUM([Sightings in past two weeks]1:[Sightings in past two weeks]4) <= 19, "Developing"), IF(SUM([Sightings in past two weeks]1:[Sightings in past two weeks]4) <= 39, "Proficient", "Exemplary"))

Thanks!

Michelle

• Hello Michelle

The error is being triggered because the formula as an extra close bracket after "Developing" ).

So either remove that bracket, or use the following formula:

=IF(SUM([Sightings in past two weeks]1:[Sightings in past two weeks]4) <= 8, "Emerging", IF(SUM([Sightings in past two weeks]1:[Sightings in past two weeks]4) <= 19, "Developing", IF(SUM([Sightings in past two weeks]1:[Sightings in past two weeks]4) <= 39, "Proficient", "Exemplary")))
