    Red face If A1 = 1, Populate B1 "Monkey", If A1 = 2, Populate B1 "Bird"

    Need help with an excel forumala, trying to avoid macros.

    I would be using this formula on cell B1.

    Formula required example: If A1 = 1, Populate B1 "Monkey", If A1 = 2, Populate B1 "Bird", If A1 = 3, Populate B1 "Dog", If A1 = 4, Populate B1 "Cat".

    Thanks in advance!

    Steve.

    You could put this in B1, but an array with values, and results would be better:

    1st alt: =CHOOSE(A1,"Monkey","Bird","Dog","Cat")
    2nd alt: =IF(A1=1,"Monkey",IF(A1=2,"Bird",IF(A1=3,"Dog",IF(A1=4,"Cat"))))

    If you had a long list of numbers to match with animals or a long list of anything else, you can use a lookup table like in my example spreadsheet attached. Then use a VLOOKUP formula like this:
