Hi,

Requesting help in excel.  I have 2 cells with dropdown list of "up" and "down". I'm trying to

1)  if cell 1 is "up" and cell 2 is "down", show "X" in cell 3.

2) if cell 1 is "down" and cell 2 is "up", show "Y" in cell 3.

3) if cell 1 is "up" and cell 2 is "up", "show "z" in cell 3.

4) if cell 1 is "down" and cell 2 is "down", show "z" in cell 3.

Thank you.

suppose your data is in cell(a1) & cell(b1)

Use this formula with(Ctrl+shift+enter)   Array formula:

``````=INDEX({"x";"y";"z";"z"},MATCH(\$A\$1&\$B\$1,{"Updown";"downUp";"UpUp";"downdown"},0))
``````

``=IF(AND(A1="up",B1="down"),"X",IF(AND(A1="down",B1="up"),"Y",IF(AND(A1="up",B1="up"),"Z",IF(AND(A1="down",B1="down"),"Z"))))``

Thank you Don!  If I want to put in "get the ball" instead of "x" in cell 3, is there a way to show only "ball" in bold font?

First, edit your title to make it more descriptive, like I mentioned in the comment to your question.

Ok, thanks.

To answer your question, you can't output "ball" with a separate format from surrounding text using a formula. You can bold a single word in a cell using the regular formatting features, just not as the output of a formula.
