IF Error (Excel 2002)
Hi
I would appreciate any help here my formula creates an error and I can't find it
=IF(B7="",IF(OR(E7<>0,G7<>0,J7<>0),"ITEM CODE MISSING",""),IF(AND(E7>0,G7=0,J7=0),"PRICE INFO MISSING",IF(E7=0,"VOLUMES MISSING","OK",IF(I7="xx","OK")))))
Many thanks

Re: IF Error (Excel 2002)
In the part
IF(E7=0,"VOLUMES MISSING","OK",IF(I7="xx","OK"))
the first IF has 4 arguments instead of 3. Perhaps you should take out the first "OK" plus comma:
=IF(B7="",IF(OR(E7<>0,G7<>0,J7<>0),"ITEM CODE MISSING",""),IF(AND(E7>0,G7=0,J7=0),"PRICE INFO MISSING",IF(E7=0,"VOLUMES MISSING",IF(I7="xx","OK"))))
but I don't know if that will do what you want.

No. Can you explain in words what you want to accomplish?

Re: IF Error (Excel 2002)
Hi Hans
Here we go
If cell B7=is empty then nothing,if(E7 is greater or less than 0 or G7 is greater of less than 0 or J7 is greater or less than 0 then "Item code is missing"),if(E7 is greater than 0 and G7=0 and J7=0 then "Price info missing"),if(E7=0 then "Volumes Missing")if(I7="XX" then "OK"

Is this it:
=IF(B7="","",IF(OR(E7<>0,G7<>0,J7<>0),"ITEM CODE MISSING",IF(AND(E7>0,G7=0,J7=0),"PRICE INFO MISSING",IF(E7=0,"VOLUMES MISSING",IF(I7="xx","OK")))))

Re: IF Error (Excel 2002)
Hi Steve
It still does not work, I think I will have to give up on this one, thanks for the whisper, it's noted.
This works,
=IF(B7="",IF(OR(E7<>0,G7<>0,J7<>0),"ITEM CODE MISSING",""),IF(AND(E8>0,G8=0,J8=0),"PRICE INFO MISSING",IF(E8=0,"VOLUMES MISSING","OK")))
it's only when I tried to add IF(I7="XX","OK") the problem occurs

Re: IF Error (Excel 2002)
Hi Braddy
The formula I came up with is similar to Steves:
=IF(ISBLANK(B7),"",IF(OR(E7<>0,G7<>0,J7<>0),"Item code is missing",IF(AND(E7>0,G7=0,J7=0),"Price Info Missing",IF(E7=0,"Volumes missing",IF(I7="xx","ok")))))
The problem is, I don't think you have the underlying logic right. What you're saying is:
 <LI>If B7 is empty, then N7 should also appear blank.
<LI>If (B7 is nonempty) and (ANY of E7, G7 and J7 contain nonzero values), then N7 displays "Item code is missing"
<LI>If (B7 is nonempty) and (E7, G7 and J7 all equal zero) and (E7 is greater than zero, and G7 and J7 both equal zero) then N7 displays "Price Info Missing"
<LI>If (B7 is nonempty) and (E7, G7 and J7 all equal zero) and (E7 equals zero) then N7 displays "Volumes missing"
<LI>If (B7 is nonempty) and (E7, G7 and J7 all equal zero) and (E7 is less than zero) and (I7 is "xx") then N7 displays "OK"
=IF(ISBLANK(B7),"",IF(OR(E7<>0,G7<>0,J7<>0),"Item code is missing","Volumes missing"))
I don't think this will do what you want it to, but it's what you asked for!Waggers
If at first you do succeed, you've probably missed something.

Hi Dave
I understand what you are saying, so I will give up on this one and try another way round the problem.
Thank you for your reply

Re: IF Error (Excel 2002)
Maybe if you explained the complete logic we could make a formula from scratch.

Re: IF Error (Excel 2002)
Hi Steve
I thank you for your offer, but I think I have found another way to achieve my goal.
Many thanks to all who replied.
Braddy
NB What I was trying to achieve was to stop a discount being applied to a cell if a anothe cell contained KK, I got round this by adjusting to table to read the list price and the discounted price being the same.If you are a fool at forty, you will always be a fool

Re: IF Error (Excel 2002)
Have you thought about making a VLOOKUP table? I've found they are sometimes easier to deal with than trying to stretch an if...then statement to fit every possibility. If you can figure out exactly what you want, you can even nest these several layers deep, giving you a large number of possibilities.
