Hi Equius,

Agreed that the VLOOKUP soution suggested by Wayne is the better one in this situation.

As an aside, though, your equation using nested IFs could be simplified as well, as there's no need for the use of AND.

The second IF, where the conditions are C3 > 5% AND C3 <=10% will be reached *only* if C3 > 5%. Since that will *always* be TRUE at this point, there's no need to retest it.

Original: =IF(C3<=5%,30%,IF(AND(C3>5%,C3<=10%),40%,IF(AND(C3>10%,C3<=15%),50%,60%)))

Revised: =IF(C3<=5%,30%,IF(C3<=10%,40%,IF(AND(C3<=15%),50%,60%)))

To exactly match the results for the VLOOKUP solution, this further revision is needed:

Revised2: =IF(C3<5%,30%,IF(C3<10%,40%,IF(AND(C3<15%),50%,60%)))

Wayne's demonstration of the increasing complexity of the nested IF formula (and consequent increasing probability of making an error in editing the formula) still applies, though.

Regards,
