How can I create an array formula for non-sequential cells

I have a number of spreadsheets that I am creating. I need to generate
results from data in non-sequential cells. Each cell has 3 choices that a
user can select from and the final result would be Pass, Fail or Incomplete
based on the selections in the other cells. (example: C1=P, E7=F, M7=I this
would result in I as the end result. C1=P, E7=P, M7=F, this would result in
F as the final result. I need to be able to create a formulat that would
cover many combinations to get my end result. Each informational cell has
the values of P, F or I

Any help on this will be very helpful.

=IF(OR(C1="F",E7="F",M7="F"),"F","P")

Alan,

Thanks. This helps somewhat. However, do you know of a way to show c1 with
all it's possible select choices, e7 with it's choices and m7 with it's
choices with the (equally any number of combinations) with the end results
being F, P or I. I'm probably confusing things here. C1 has P, F or I as
selection choices, as does e7 and m7.. My final result will be based on any
combination of the three. I've been wracking my brain on this all day. It
may well be that I have to put each combination of arrays into a separate
cell rather than in a single cell.

Regards, Sue

Sue,
What's the pass criteria? Do you mean if any one category is an 'F' then
that constitutes an overall failure? Do doubt in can be done but need more
detail,

Alan.

Alan,

Thx for responding. Pass criteria is all three cells c1, e7, m7 all have P
(Pass) as their result. I could have P, I, F, or I, I, F, or P, P, F, or P,
P, I, or F, F, F or I, I, I. and I could probably go on. The Pass is the
easy one. C1, E7 and M7 all P = a final result of P. Any combination with
an I constitutes a final result of I and all F's is a failure

Sue

Hi!

Try this:

=IF(OR(C1="",E7="",M7=""),"",IF(OR(C1="I",E7="I",M 7="I"),"I",IF(OR(C1="F",E7="F",M7="F"),"F","P")) )

Allan & Biff,

Thank you so much. I will try Biff's suggestion over the weekend and let
you both know how it worked.
