 Posted: Wed Jul 28, 2010 1:04 am    Post subject: Complex Question, hope you can help with this formula 'AttPriority' accepts values from 1 to 6, each representing the order a series of options 1- A, B, C 2- A, C, B 3- C, B, A 4- C, A, B 5- B, A, C 6- B, C, A I have 3 tables, each with a cell having the respective formulas =(IF(OR(AttPriority=5;AttPriority=6);BQ2;IF(OR(AttPriority=2;AttPriority=3);BT2;IF(OR(AttPriority=4;AttPriority=1);BW2)))) =(IF(OR(AttPriority=3;AttPriority=4);BQ2;IF(OR(AttPriority=1;AttPriority=6);BT2;IF(OR(AttPriority=2;AttPriority=5);BW2)))) =(IF(OR(AttPriority=1;AttPriority=2);BQ2;IF(OR(AttPriority=4;AttPriority=5);BT2;IF(OR(AttPriority=3;AttPriority=6);BW2)))) 'BQ2' currently equals 7 'BT2' currently equals 5 'BW2' currently equals 3 My goal is to have a formula that calculates one of the formulas above, minus a colum of variable numbers. Ex: =(IF(OR(AttPriority=5;AttPriority=6);BQ2;IF(OR(AttPriority=2;AttPriority=3);BT2;IF(OR(AttPriority=4;AttPriority=1);BW2))))-SUM(BR18:BR20) Thing is, at this time, the formula works perfectly except when the 'AttPriority' refers to 'BQ2' (value: 7). When the value is the greatest value of the 3 available values, it stops calculating it, and gives me only the equivalent of 0-SUM(BR18:BR20) I really do not know what to do to solve this problem. Help? Thank you!
