# Excel - IF Function Problem - Expert Solution

Question description:
This user has given permission to use the problem statement for this blog.

Hi, quick question about the following situation: So I have 4 yes/no radio buttons all in 4 different group boxes. I am trying to make it so that if I select yes for one of them, cell B2 populate "high", and if I select yes for two of them then B2 populate "medium", and if I select yes for none of them or for any 1 of 4, B2 populate "low". Which radio buttons selected are irrelevant, but it matters as to how many of them are selected. If I can get advice on how to code this that would be nice. Thanks.

User 01/12/2017 - 10:39
do I have to assign an individual macro to each of the 4 radio buttons first so I get their macro names? and then use those macro names in the if/else statement for the whole ? not sure if that's possible..
