Lotus 123 @if(and statement

Lotus 123 @if(and statement

Lotus 123 @if(and statement

(OP)
Question:

I have a need to test for 3 or more conditions in a spreadsheet ex:@if(a=1 and @if( b=2 and @if( c=3, then "x", else "y"))).

Also have a need to test conditions within a range of #'s
ex: @if(a>20 and @if(a<=25,then x, else y))

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Lotus 123 @if(and statement

Hi Jessec3,

If you haven't yet started to used range names, then I would STRONGLY recommend that you start now.  You'll see that it will make a HUGE difference in your overall use of Lotus 123.

Where you referred to "a", "b", "c", etc, I have used 3-digit names.  You can use whatever name you like - usually one will use names that you can associate with the data.  Be sure NOT to use names that will conflict with cell coordinates.  For example, don't use a name like "a1".  I you should want to use something like "a1", used the "_" character - e.g. "_a1" or "a1_".

Here are the formulas...

1) @IF(AAA=1#AND#BBB=2#AND#CCC=3,XXX,YYY)

2) @IF(AAA>20#AND#AAA<=25,XXX,YYY)

If you want to copy these formulas and have the reference to the range names stay "absolute" (fixed), then place the "$" character in front of those names you want to stay absolute.

I hope this helps.   Please advise as to how you make out.

I was unable to repair the file.  I ended up having someone re-create the spreadsheet for me.  I would like to know if there is a way to repair them in case it happens again though.
