nested "If statement" using text

This is my expression.

=IF(M1="M",12,IF(M1="SM",24,IF(M1="W",24.2,IF(M1=" BW",26.07,IF(M1="A",1)))))

The result is "False" for the "M","A", and "w". The results for "SM" and
"BW" are correct. (24 and 26.07) is there something wrong with my statement?

Thanks

The code works exactly as written.
If I enter the following letters in M1 I get
M 12
SM 24
W 24
BW 26.07

any other input get FALSE because M1="A",1 there is no 2nd parameter

you could write M1="A",1,0

then you would get a 0 for any other response

you may have to use the trim() function to get rid of non visable characters.

=IF(trim(M1)="M",12,IF(trim(M1)="SM",24,IF(trim(M1 )="W",24.2,IF(trim(M1)="BW",26.07,IF(trim(M1)="A", 1)))))

or shorter
=vlookup(trim(M1),{"M","SM","W","BW","A";12,24,24. 2,26.07,1},2,0)
