# Excel IFS Function

In excel, we can use the IFS function to evaluate multiple conditions without having to use nested if conditions. This function can run multiple tests and return a value which corresponds to the first TRUE result. This article looks at how we can use the excel IFS function to run these tests.

Figure 1: Using Excel IFS function to test multiple conditions

## General syntax of the formula

`=IFS (test1, value1, [test2, value2], [test3, value3],….)`

Where;

• test1- is the first logical test
• value1- refers to the result when test1 is TRUE
• test2- refers to second logical test
• value2- refers to the result when test2 is true

## Understanding the formula

We use the Excel IFS function when we want to test multiple conditions without nesting. This function return the value which corresponds to the first TRUE result.

• For you to efficiently use the formula, you will have to enter the arguments in a test/value pair.
• Note that each of the test represent a logical test which returns TRUE or FALSE.
• Also, note that each of the values is associated with the previous test.
• IFS function will only return a value if its test returns TRUE.
• The IFS function can only support a maximum of 127 tests.

Notice that if none of the logical tests supplied fails to return TRUE, then the function will return #N/A error.
