#### Re: Can anyone help me with the IF function

Hello

I'm trying to help my wife with simplifying her scheduling o
employees.  She uses 11 different time periods (1-11) some
are worth the same amount of hours others are more or less.  I can us
seven functions to describe the period and the
value of hours it is worth, but when I consolidate the functions i
says the formula is invalid.  I'm sure it can be
fixed by one of you excel gurus!  Here are the functions

IF(B13<4,"7.75")
IF(B13=4,"7.25")
IF(B13=5,"6.25")
IF(B13=6,"7.75")
IF(B13=7,"6.75")
IF(B13=8,"6.25")
IF(B13>8,"4")

Each individually works great!  When I consolidate it to the followin
formula excel tells me the following formula
contains an error, and when I click on the summation sign the firs
part of the function is considered invalid.  Please
help me as I'am at a dead end!  Thanks

IF((B13<4,"7.75"),IF(B13=4,"7.25"),IF(B13=5,"6.25"),IF(B13=6,"7.75"),IF(B13=7,"6.75"),IF(B13=8,"6.25"),IF(B13>8,"4"))

BTW what I want this formula to do is when I type 1-11 the appropriat
hour value associated with that period is displayed.  This way she ca
quickly describe the period time frame and can easily track hours

I replaced the last if with the static value 4 as there is no other
possibilty at this stage.  That is, you've exhausted all other options,
and "4" is the only possible solution.

You might want to set up a lookup table:
1   8
2   8
....
8   4
9   4
etc.

there is something wrong with your formula, the correct one should be
as the following:

=IF(A2="",0,IF(A2<4,7.75,IF(A2=4,7.25,IF(A2=5,6.25,IF(A2=6,7.75,IF(A2=7,6.75,IF(A2=8,6.25,IF(A2>8,4,A2))))))))

but there is another problem I am not clear, if the hour is 4.5, how
much should the associated period be?

If the criteria is continuous, Lookup function might be the a better
choice.

No reason for all those duplicate values.
This is a little shorter:

=LOOKUP(B13,{0,1,4,5,6,7,8,9;0,7.75,7.25,6.25,7.75,6.75,6.25,4})

My barcode scanner can't seem to read barcodes that I printed out. I will not barcodes on receipt either. any suggestions will be great. Thanks I had the same problem. I only had this problem with certain barcodes. When I looked at the ones that the scanner wasn't reading, I noticed that they all used lower case letters. As soon as I changed the letters to upper case I was able to scan the labels.

Macro Error, annoying plz help?
Hi, new to this board and kinda new to Excel as well. I created an excell file which includes various (difficult) calculations. And it's all finished and ready for distribution :P Cept for 2 minor things which i can't seem 2 fix. The most important one is this Macro Error which keeps popping up when you open the file. (I included a combo-box form, i think it's gotta do with that). Because if u pick something from that list (combo box) the error pops up again, very annoying of course. There is one way to prevent this as far as i could see and that was by setting macro security low....

Migration: Migrated custom fields can't sync with plan
We migrated a set of enterprise global fields from 2003 to 2007. However, some of the post migration changes to these fields can't be reflected into project professional for all plans. Example, we have a project outline code in 2003 called Portfolio, which is a hierarchical set of values. In 2003, we allowed selection of non-leave node and didn't allow multi-selection. After migration, we changed the settings of the field to allow only leave node and multi-selection. However, these changes are neither picked up by migrated project plans nor newly created project plan....

Can you work this backwards
Previously I used 3 simple formulas (if statements) to calculate a charge, so if E9 =3D=A33000 then the formula for the charge was =3DIF(E9<=3D1000;E9*1.1;"=A3100") then =3DIF(AND(E9>1000;E9 <=3D2000);(E9-1000)*0.9;"=A3200") =3DIF(E9>2000;(E9-2000)*0.5;) Total Cost ... of above 3 items plus E9 (=A33000) Now people are asking to spend a total of =A33000 including the charge, so now Total Cost is to be =A33000 and then I have to work back to find E9. How is the best way to do this please. Bob Hi, Use the "Solver" utility in Excel. Let us suppose ...
