    Awarding Points Based on Game Results

    I'm a complete newbie when it comes to excel and am trying to fumble my way through doing a basic spread sheet for our local bowling club where by points are allocated depending upon the result of a game. I know what I'm trying to achieve but the syntax for the appropriate formula has be scratching my head. These are the criteria to be met and I assume a series of nested "IF" and "AND" comparisons need to be used:-

    IF (A1 > A2) THEN 10
    IF (SCORE 1 IS > THAN SCORE 2) THEN AWARD 10pts


    IF (A2 > A1) THEN 0
    IF (SCORE 2 IS > THAN SCORE 1) THEN AWARD 0pts


    IF (A1 = A2) THEN 10
    IF (SCORE 1 = SCORE 2) [Drawn game] THEN AWARD 10pts


    IF (A1 + A2 = 0) THEN 0
    IF (SCORE 1 + SCORE 2 = 0) [Forfeited game] AWARD 0pts

    hi Captain Legless, is this what you need?
    =IF(OR(A2>A1,SUM(A1:A2)=0),0,IF(OR(A1>A2,A1=A2),10,""))

    do explain if it doesn't work

    Thanks benishiryo for a lightening fast reply, under 10 minutes from me posting the question!
    I do believe your solution works. I've quickly inserted it into my document and amended to to accommodate the cells that I'm using and it appears to be OK. I'll give it a workout tomorrow (it's almost midnight here) using various values and will see if I can break it.
