Hi, welcome to JustAnswer! My name is***** am sorry for the trouble you are facing right now. But, I'll do my best to help you with your concern.

May I know what trouble you are experiencing?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
I am trying to leave a cell with one of three values. If Cell A1 = "Thu" then 300, or if A1 = "Sat" then 250 else 0. Is there a way to do this in excel do you think?
Expert:  K Dismas replied 7 days ago.

I'm sorry this has happened. I will provide you with information to help you fix the problem.

  • You can use the IF function in excel.

  • You can use the formula in the excel cell below.

    • =IF(A1="Thu",300,IF(A1="Sat",250,0))

Also, please let me know if you have questions so I can assist you furthermore.

The "Thu" one is now giving the result of 300, but the "Sat" one is still showing 0
