    Nesting IF functions using EOMONTH

    Hi Everyone,

    I need to create an 'IF' function that nests four EOMONTH functions.

    The following throws an error:

    =IF(D12="1st month goes here",EOMONTH(D7,2),if(D12="2nd month goes here",EOMONTH(D7,3),if(D12="3rd month goes here",EOMONTH(D7,5)))

    EOMONTH will increase the date in the resultant cell accordingly.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Add 1 more closing bracket ")"at the end of the formula and every thing seems OK to me.

    Re: Nesting IF functions using EOMONTH

    apart from the fact you have no named ranges in the example pasting in HSC_L2,HSC_L3 or HSC_L5
    gives
    30/04/2014
    31/05/2014
    or
    31/07/2014
    respectively
    if you don't have an option in d12 you will get false or if d12 isnt an exact match for what's in the dropdown
    =IF(D12="HSC_L2",EOMONTH(D7,2),IF(D12="HSC_L3",EOMONTH(D7,3),IF(D12="HSC_L5",EOMONTH(D7,5),"what to do if false")))

    So you can not input anything in D12?
    There is a data validation for D12. Just come into Data menu / Data validation and remove it.

    Are you looking for lookup function?

    Hi

    It just returns the word 'FALSE' and not the desired date.

    it works fine on a singular EOMONTH but not the nested one.

    maybe you can't nest them!

    see attached with updated ranges.

    Re: Nesting IF functions using EOMONTH

    your dropdown doesn't have the underscore that is in the formula
    HSC L3 is not the same as HSC_L3 so it wont match
    ive changed the dropdown values in the red cells to match the formula,you could do it the otherway around and change the formula to
    =IF(D12="HSC L2",EOMONTH(D7,2),IF(D12="HSC L3",EOMONTH(D7,3),IF(D12="HSC L5",EOMONTH(D7,5),"what to do if false")))

    Re: Nesting IF functions using EOMONTH

    I created a Data Validation list from C20:C22 and named it Care. I then removed the underscores from your formula so that the values in C20:c22 would match the values in your formula....seems to work.
