Complex 'if" formula

Hi

I have the following complex "if" formula below which does not produce a complete result or only produce a result for one of the conditions.  And if I apply one of the 4 conditions and comment the others out, then the formula works individually.  Please can you tell me where i am going wrong

if(SOH< [Ideal Stock Holding],if([Stock Holding]<2,'Low Stock',

if(SOH> [Maximum Stock Holding],if([Stock Holding]>8,'Overstock',

if(SOH< [Ideal Stock Holding],if([Stock Holding]>8,'Consider',

if(SOH> [Maximum Stock Holding],if([Stock Holding]<3,'Consider',''))))))))

Thank you

kind regards

Nayan

I have change the example file with your data. My expression is working if you set a comma after the second "Consider". I have forgotten it first and changed my post yet.

Re: Complex 'if" formula

HI Nayan,

Maybe you have to sort your expression a little bit,

if(SOH< [Ideal Stock Holding],

     if([Stock Holding]<2,'Low Stock',

     if([Stock Holding]>8,'Consider', '')),

if(SOH> [Maximum Stock Holding],

     if([Stock Holding]<3,'Consider',

     if([Stock Holding]>8,'Overstock', ''))

, ''))

So the expression first looking at all the Ideal Stock Holding and if it finds nothing there it is going through the Maximum Stock Holding.

Re: Complex 'if" formula

Hi Nayan,

Try this code

if(SOH<[Ideal Stock Holding] and [Stock Holding]<2,'Low Stock',
if(SOH<[Ideal Stock Holding] and [Stock Holding]>8,'Consider',
if(SOH>[Maximum Stock Holding] and [Stock Holding]<3,'Consider',
if(SOH>[Maximum Stock Holding] and [Stock Holding]>8,'Overstock')))) as Status

Not sure whether your requirement fullfill this code.

Tom
