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

I have a spread sheet with numbers in different columns that add up and I need a formula in the last column which shows 1 or 2 listed. if column f adds up to 30 a 1 should show in last column and if column f adds up to 60 a 2 should show. I started the formula =IF(I3>29,"1") now how do I add to this formula to have the 2 show if greater then 39?

Sorry column M is where the formula goes

Do you mean if the sum is between 1 and 29 inclusive then we should have 1 in column M
User 10/10/2018 - 01:17
in column M I need the formula to read if I3 is greater then 29 a 1 should show and also if I3 is greater then 39 a 2 should show.
Excelchat Expert 10/10/2018 - 01:17
Okay.
Excelchat Expert 10/10/2018 - 01:18
Based on what you’ve shared, you need an IF function which should return 1 if column I is greater than 29, and a 2 if column I is greater than 39.
