# Nested If & And error

Options
✭✭

Hello,

I'm relatively new to Smartsheet and am having an issue building a nested if/and function for one of my grids.

I have 2 columns ("Effort" & "Impact") and am trying to get 4 unique values based on the numbers -

If Effort@row >12.5 and Impact@row<45 show "Kill"

If Effort@row>12.5 and Impact@row>45 show "Challenge"

If Effort@row<12.5 and Impact@row<45 show "Possible"

If Effort@row<12.5 and Impact@row>45 show "Implement"

Any guidance on how to build this out?

Hi @JBS27

You've done a good job so far! It's now just about tweaking the structure of your statements.

For example, for this statement

If Effort@row >12.5 and Impact@row<45 show "Kill"

use this:

=IF(AND(Effort@row >12.5, Impact@row < 45), "Kill",

Full formula:

=IF(AND(Effort@row >12.5, Impact@row < 45), "Kill", IF(AND(Effort@row > 12.5, Impact@row > 45), "Challenge", IF(AND(Effort@row < 12.5, Impact@row < 45), "Possible", IF(AND(Effort@row < 12.5, Impact@row > 45), "Implement"))))

We could tweak it a bit to make it more concise, but the above formula is a direct translation of your four statements so it makes the most logical sense for me.

Let me know if I can clarify anything further!

Cheers,
