Author: | Edits: don

Easily create nested IF statements using the new IFS() function for Excel!

The IFS() function allows you to have multiple conditional checks and output something different for each condition. The structure of this function is more like the IF statement in programming than the IF() worksheet function in Excel.

In addition to the syntax and basic usage of the IFS function, I'll show you a simple process for making much more complex decision structures using this variation of the IF statement.

In this tutorial, I'll walk you through multiple examples, including:

  • checking text values and outputing different smiley faces based on food selections
  • checking for ranges of values, the standard "school grades" example
  • combining multiple logical checks together in order to create a more complex decision structure using the IFS() function in Excel

I hope you enjoy this tutorial!
