Nested If

The IF function in Excel can be nested when the users have multiple conditions to meet. The FALSE value is being replaced continuously by another IF function to make a further test.

The following example will give a clear description of the formula for the Nested If statement.

Explanation: For the above example,  if the score equals 1, the nested IF formula returns Bad; if the score equals 2, the nested IF procedure returns Good; if the score equals 3, the nested IF formula returns Excellent else, it returns Not Valid.

And/Or Scenario

Users can use the combination of AND/OR statements for complex statements.

The following example will help you understand the clear picture of such scenarios.

Explanation: The AND function above has two arguments separated by a comma (Table, Green, or Blue). The AND function returns TRUE only if Product equals "Table" and Color equals "Green" or "Blue." If the answer is TRUE, the IF function reduces the price by 50%, and if the value is FALSE, the IF function minimizes the cost by 10%.
