# IF/AND Functions

Options
edited 12/09/19

I am trying to create a sheet that will auto update a number in a cell using multiple IF AND statements. Is it possible to have multiple IF(AND statements in one cell or what is the format? When I have one statement it works properly, but I cannot figure out how to have it work with two or more. I am not worried about the color conditions so much, just the logic statements. Below is a list of what I am trying to accomplish.

My first statement: =IF(AND([Number of Projects]3 < 6, [Currently Projected Hrs]3 < 121), "1", "2")

IF number of projects is below 6 & currently project hours are below 121 THEN make staffing demand green with a number 1

IF number of projects is above 5 & currently project hours are below 121 THEN make staffing demand yellow with a number 1

IF number of projects is above 5 & currently project hours are above 120 THEN make staffing demand red with a number 2

IF number of projects is below 6 & currently project hours are above 120 THEN make staffing demand yellow with a number 2

IF number of projects is below 11 & currently project hours are below 241 THEN make staffing demand red with a number 2

IF number of projects is above 10 & currently project hours are below 241 THEN make staffing demand yellow with a number 2

IF number of projects is above 10 & currently project hours are above 240 THEN make staffing demand red with a number 3

IF number of projects is below 11 & currently project hours are above 240 THEN make staffing demand yellow with a number 3

Hi Darian,

Appologies for the delayed response. I consulted with one of our resident Formula experts to get some help with this one.

You should be able to achieve what you want with a series of nested IF formulas. Here's an example to get you started:

=IF(AND([Number of Projects]3 < 6, [Currently Projected Hrs]3 < 121), 1, IF(AND([Number of Projects]3 > 5, [Currently Projected Hrs]3 < 121), 1, IF(AND([Number of Projects]3 > 5, [Currently Projected Hrs]3 > 120), 2, add the next nested formula here...)))

Also, I recommend this Blog post on nested IFs:

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Gwyneth
