# IFS

IFS(logical_test1, value_if_true1 [,logical_test2, value_if_true2] [..])

Returns the value based on multiple True or False conditions.

 logical_test1 Condition that evaluates to True or False. value_if_true1 Result if the logical value evaluates to True. logical_test2 (Optional) Condition that evaluates to True or False. value_if_true2 (Optional) Result if the logical value evaluates to True.

 REMARKS
 * This function was added in Excel 2019 to remove nested IF functions.* For an illustrated example refer to the page under Advanced Functions* For an overview of conditional formulas refer to this page* This function is not case sensitive when matching text strings.* This function does not support wildcards (? and *).* It is possible to specify a default value by adding a condition that will always be true as your last condition.* If you do not provide a corresponding value for each logical test then the pop up message "you have entered too few arguments for this function" is displayed.* If any logical_text argument does not evaluate to either True or False, then #VALUE! is returned.* You can have a maximum of 127 (logical_tests and values).* If no conditions are found, then #N/A! is returned.* If the function is not available, then #NAME? is returned.* You can use the IF function to return a value based on one condition.* You can use the IFERROR function to return the value or something else if it evaluates to an error.* You can use the SWITCH function to return a value based on a list of exact matches.* There are also AVERAGEIFS, COUNTIFS, MAXIFS, MINIFS and SUMIFS functions.* For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com* For the Google documentation refer to support.google.com

 1 - What value is returned when cell "B2" equals 14 using nested IF functions.2 - What value is returned when cell "B2" equals 14 without nested IF functions.3 - What value is returned when cell "B4" equals "one" using nested IF functions.4 - What value is returned when cell "B4" equals "one" without nested IF functions.5 - What value is returned when cell "B4" equals "one" using the SWITCH function.6 - What value is returned when the logical test "B1=10" is evaluated.7 - What value is returned when the logical test "B2=15" is evaluated.8 - What value is returned when the logical text "B1>10" is evaluated.9 - What is returned when the first two logical tests evaluate to False.10 - What is returned when the logical test is not a valid expression.11 - What is returned when none of the logical tests are True.
