from C17 to B15 use nested IF to display shiping cost

May 25, 2013 at 20:37:37
Specs: Windows 7
in cell C17, use nested IF funtions to display the shipping cost for the option entered in cell B15.
I'm confused because I am not sure what to type in, in the Logical test area. I typed in shipping options and it was invalid.

You haven't really given me enough information to really know for sure what you want, but here's a shot in the dark. You will obviously need to change the values to better fit your needs...

IF Syntax: IF(logical_test,value_if_true,value_if_false)

From Excel: Checks whether a condition is met and returns one value if TRUE and another value if FALSE.

Assuming there are three shipping options ("2-Day", "5-Day" and "10-Day")

Copy and Paste formula below into C17.

=IF(B15="2-Day", "Shipping: $19.99", IF(B15="5-Day", "Shipping: $9.99", IF(B15="10-Day", "Shipping: $1.99", "Please enter Shipping Type")))

If B15 is blank or has any other text besides "2-Day", "5-Day" or "10-Day" C17 will say "Please enter Shipping Type." If you type "2-Day", "5-Day" or "10-Day" the appropriate cost that is defined in the formula will show up in C17.

Law of Logical Argument: Anything is possible if you don't know what you're talking about.

If the IF function is going to rely on the value manually entered into a given cell, I suggest that you use a data validation drop down list.

You just can't trust those pesky users to type the exact text string that the IF function is looking for.
