=ROUND(IF(IFERROR(VLOOKUP(B22255,PriceCharting!$A:$J,2,FALSE),"0")="Xbox One",VLOOKUP(B22255,PriceCharting!$A:$J,10,FALSE),IFERROR(VLOOKUP(B22255,PriceCharting!$A:$G,5,FALSE),"0"))*0.9,0)-0.01

If you look at the formula you will see that it checks to see if a condition matches the text "Xbox One".
User 15/01/2017 - 03:25
Using just this one IF statement the formula works.
User 15/01/2017 - 03:26
But i need to have this formula check on 4 other phrases in order to function. So if it matches either Xbox One or any of the other 4 phrases it will display one value, else the other.

I'm running into a wall and can't figure it out. I keep getting errors.
User 15/01/2017 - 03:27

Excelchat Expert 15/01/2017 - 03:28

Excelchat Expert 15/01/2017 - 03:33
Can you share with me any sample data?
Excelchat Expert 15/01/2017 - 03:33
As last part of formula seems to be problematic
User 15/01/2017 - 03:34
I can maybe send you the entire sheet. Its big.. like 6mb
Excelchat Expert 15/01/2017 - 03:35
I just need some sample data to ensure the corrective action
User 15/01/2017 - 03:35
Will screenshots work?
Excelchat Expert 15/01/2017 - 03:36
Better you send me some data, as I have to check the formula out put
User 15/01/2017 - 03:38
ok, it might take a minute to get a working sheet, as in its current form its too big to upload
Excelchat Expert 15/01/2017 - 03:38
Excelchat Expert 15/01/2017 - 03:40
Apparently, ELSE part of your formula and ROUND function syntax seems incorrect
User 15/01/2017 - 03:40
Thats weird because that formula is working ok.
Excelchat Expert 15/01/2017 - 03:43
Have you tried INDEX function?
User 15/01/2017 - 03:43
I am unable to upload the file. it must be too big.
User 15/01/2017 - 03:44
I'm going to try one other thing to shrink it.
Excelchat Expert 15/01/2017 - 03:44
You can send me dropbox or google docs link of your data
Excelchat Expert 15/01/2017 - 03:46
I will request my supervisor to send you back the file link
Excelchat Expert 15/01/2017 - 03:47
Better you send me google docs link, with problem statement and requirements description
