Formula works in google sheets but not in Excel, how to make it works?
=IF(D2="","",LOOKUP(D2,{0,4.99,9.99,24.99,99.99,14 99.99},{"1","1.5","2.5",D2*0.1,(0.05*(D2100))+10,(0.03*(D21500))+80}))
This formula works in google sheets but not in Excel on my PC. How to make it works on Excel? "Using Excel 2007" Thanks.

How to make it works on Excel? "Using Excel 2007" Try: =IF(D2="","",CHOOSE(MATCH(D2,{0,4.99,9.99,24.99,99 .99,1499.99}), "1","1.5","2.5",D2*0.1,(0.05*(D2100))+10,(0.03*(D21500))+80)) However, at a minimum, I think the following is better: =IF(D2="","",CHOOSE(MATCH(D2,{0,4.99,9.99,24.99,99 .99,1499.99}), 1,1.5,2.5,D2*0.1,0.(05*(D2100))+10,(0.03*(D21500))+80)) I removed the doublequotes around the first 3 results so the formula returns __numeric__ 1, 1.5 and 2.5 instead of __text__ "1", "1.5" and "2.5". I presume that is what you intended. Moreover, if D2 is calculated (a formula), the following might be more reliable: =IF(D2="","",CHOOSE(MATCH(ROUND(D2,2), {0,4.99,9.99,24.99,99.99,1499.99}), 1,1.5,2.5,D2*0.1,0.(05*(D2100))+10,(0.03*(D21500))+80)) The point is: D2 might __appear__ to be 4.99 due to formatting (e.g. Number with 2 decimal places), but its __actual__ value might be less, for example 4.989. In that case, you need to use ROUND(...,2) if you want to treat D2 as it __appears__ (4.99). Alternatively, you might use ROUND(...,2) in the formula in D2 instead. Whether or not that is correct to do depends on the design of your worksheet. That is true for Google Sheets as well as Excel.

Whether or not that is correct to do depends on the design of your worksheet. That is true for Google Sheets as well as Excel. When I try it in XL2010 it faults any attempt to put a formula in the results array list. It only accepts simple manifest constants. It won't accept PI() for instance.  Regards, Martin Brown

It only accepts simple manifest constants. ..... Which is why I effectively replaced LOOKUP with CHOOSE. From the Excel LOOKUP help page: [BEGIN QUOTE] LOOKUP(lookup_value,lookup_vector,result_vector) Lookup_value is a value that LOOKUP searches for in the first vector. Lookup_value can be a number, text, a logical value, or a name or reference that refers to a value. Lookup_vector is a range that contains only one row or one column. The values in lookup_vector can be text, numbers, or logical values. [END QUOTE] "Text, number or logical values". Nothing there about expressions. A little experimentation would have confirmed: =LOOKUP(5,{0,4.99,10},{1,2,3}) works, but: =LOOKUP(5,{0,4.99,10},{1,2+0,3}) raises a syntax error.
