    Could you tell me why the second half on this formula is not working?

    So the "WST" formula is working perfectly but the "MAXIMS" just seems to keep coming back with "FALSE". If i split the two formulas they both work independently. Any help would be much appreciated!

    =IF(C8="WST",IF(I8="","",VLOOKUP(J8,Data!B:H,7,IF(C8="MAXIMS",IF(I8="","",VLOOKUP(J8,Data!B:I,8,FALSE))))))

    Thanks!!

    Try
    =if(c8="wst",if(i8="","",vlookup(j8,data!b:h,7,0)),if(c8="maxims",if(i8="","",vlookup(j8,data!b:i,8,false))))

    HI,

    Unfortunately this has done the same as earlier and has come out with the same answer as the "first half". The answer to the first half is in tab DATA column H and the second half should be from column I, if this helps at all?

    How about

    =IF(C8="","",VLOOKUP(J8,Data!B:I,7+(C8<>"wst"),0))

    The exact same issue again, reading the answer for "WST" with either option.

    Please help to upload your file with mock up the results manually, Go Advanced > Manage Attachments

    Make sure that all confidential data is removed or replaced with dummy data first
