    Multiple IF statement with 3 or more variables.

    Here it is in a nutshell:

    I have the following parameters that i must meet.

    in cell A1 i have a value that is changing.

    I want cell A2 to look at this value and determine what to do, it must meet the following things. I am thinking this can be done with an if statement but i am not sure exactly how.

    if A1>600, A1*.02
    If A1>399, A1*.03
    If A1<400, 5.50

    so basically what i am trying to do is look back at A1 and if the value falls between 399-599 multiply that value by 0.03, if the value is lower than 400 then report 5.50, if the value is 600 or greater then multiply by 0.02

    Thanks in advance.

    rkm140,

    Try:
    =IF(A1>=600,A1*0.02,IF(A1<400,5.5,IF(A1>399,A1*0.03,"")))
    Have a great day,

    Re: Multiple IF statement with 3 or more variables.

    How about?

    =IF(A1+0>600,A1*0.02,IF(A1+0>399,A1*0.03,5.50)

    That means A1 is actually entered as a text string and not a number.
