Multiple IF statements

Multiple IF statements

Have spent considerable time just trying to work out how to enter a 'simple' function which is to return a varying value as follows :-

Sorry unable to paste or create a table here.

`•  A  B  C                 1  F  A  Desired Value  2  2  1  3                Where column A is greater than column B                                            3  1  1  1                Where column A is equal to column B4  1  2  0                Where column A is less than column B`

Is there any way to integrate the three functions into one formula - any advice would be most appreciated

Re: Multiple IF statements

In column C:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
`IF( A1>B1; 3; IF(A1=B1; 1; 0 ) )`

In pseudocode that is
`IFvalue of A1 is greater than B1, display 3Else IFvalue of A1 is equal to B1, display 1Else[A1 must be less than B1] display 0`

Is there any way to integrate the three [cases] into one formula?
