Nesting IF Worksheet Functions in Excel

If you nest IF worksheet functions in Excel, you can test multiple conditions and return different values depending on the results of the tests. To nest IF functions, put the function inside another IF function. The nested IF function can be used to test multiple conditions and return different values for each condition. For example, you could use a nested IF function to calculate a student's grade based on their score on a test. If the score is less than 60, the grade would be 'F', if the score is between 60 and 70, the grade would be 'D', if the score is between 70 and 80, the grade would be 'C', if the score is between 80 and 90, the grade would be 'B', and if the score is greater than 90, the grade would be 'A'.

You can also use nested IF functions to return different values depending on whether a cell contains a number or text. For example, you could use a nested IF function to return "Yes" if a cell contains a number greater than 10, "No" if a cell contains a number less than 10, and "Error" if a cell contains text. To do this, you would use two nested IF functions. The first IF function would test whether the cell contains a number or text. If it contains a number, it will return "Yes" or "No". If it contains text, it will return "Error". The second IF function will test whether the cell contains a number greater than 10. If it does, it will return "Yes". If not, it will return "No".

You can also use nested IF functions to return different values depending on whether a cell is blank or not. For example, you could use a nested IF function to return "Yes" if a cell is not blank, and "No" if a cell is blank. To do this, you would use an IF function with an ISBLANK function inside it. The ISBLANK function will check if a cell is blank or not. If it is blank, it will return TRUE. If it is not blank, it will return FALSE.
