I have a situation where I have 3 different “categories” but 4 differernt formulas.
SO, let’s say my categories are Dogs, Cats, and Fish. I will always have Dogs. Sometimes with the Dogs I’ll have Cats; sometimes I’ll have Fish with my Dogs, and sometimes I’ll have Cats AND Fish with my Dogs. And the numbers vary with all of my stock.
I need to have a formula where #1 it recognizes what’s in the group (Dogs, Dogs/Cats, Dogs/Fish, Dogs/Cats/Fish), then I need that formula to add each category.
Here’s an example: The 6 left columns are my working columns where I manually type the number and type of livestock, and the FORMULA column is what I need it to say.
|3||Poodle||3 Dog(s): Poodle|
|2||Snauzer||2||Tabby||2 Dog(s): Snauzer / 2 Cat(s): Tabby|
|5||Bloodhound||1||Guppy||5 Dog(s): Bloodhound / 1 Fish(s): Guppy|
|1||Poodle||4||Calico||1||Guppy||1 Dog(s): Poodle / 4 Cat(s): Calico / 1 Fish(s): Guppy|
I have formulas for each individual siguation, but I can’t figure out how to have Excel figure out which formula to use when.
Here are the formulas I use individually:
=(B13&” Dogs(s): “&C13&””)
=(B14&” Dog(s): “&C14&” / “&D14&” Cat(s): “&E14&””)
=(B15&” Dog(s): “&C15&” / “&F15&” Fish(s): “&G15)
=(B16&” Dog(s): “&C16&” / “&D16&” Cat(s): “&E16&” / “&F16&” Fish(s): “&G16)
