    Lookup against a list and apply the same formula with different outcomes based on criteria

    That title is a mouthful.

    I think this may be an extreme nested if, or I could have the results in a matrix and pick the right-most column with a non-blank value.

    If you look at the table below:

    Ok apparently the table insert on this forum is nowhere near as sophisticated as on Mr.Excel...


    I have a list of paper names down A, a list of template sizes down B and in C I want to have the ideal type of advert to run for each template in each paper.

    Here's where things get juicy - different template sizes and the frequency a paper is selected determines the type of advert to run.

    Below is the ruleset:
    • Each Advert should default to "UK"
    • If there are two papers in a week, one should be UK and the other should be EU
    • Promo sizes are 16x9 and 17x6 and must be "Promo"
    • Unless there has already been a promo, in which case make it UK
    • Also, there can only be one EU per week

    Anyone got any ideas for this? I'm stumped on how to make EU appear only once, everything else I have down as an independent rule in a matrix and my plan is to grab the rightmost non-blank cell of each row

    The post is at the following:


    on the Mr excel forum.

    Rule 08: Cross-posting Without Telling Us

    Your post does not comply with Rule 8 of our Forum RULES. Do not cross-post your question on multiple forums without telling us about your threads on other forums.

    Post a link to any other forums where you have asked the same question. If you have fewer than 10 posts here, you will not be able to post a link, but you must still tell us where else you have asked the question.

    Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

    Expect cross-posted questions without a link to be closed and a message will be posted by the moderator explaining why. We are here to help so help us to help you!

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this, and then please edit your first post to include links to any and all cross-posts in any other forums (not just this site).

    If you have less than 10 posts, do not try to copy and paste the link. Instead, type the link out in your thread.

    No further help to be offered, please, until the OP has complied with this request.
