I have a very rough workaround for 10 statements using a combination of 2 cells, as follows

```
Cell 1 (O2)
=IF(C2="TW2-OUT",VLOOKUP($D2,Players,8,FALSE)+VLOOKUP($D2,Players,9,FALSE),IF(C2="TW2-IN",IF($D2="","",VLOOKUP($D2,Players,10,FALSE)),IF(C2="Playing",IF($D2="","",VLOOKUP($D2,Players,8,FALSE)+VLOOKUP($D2,Players,9,FALSE)+VLOOKUP($D2,Players,10,FALSE)),IF(C2="IN1OUT2",VLOOKUP($D2,Players,9,FALSE)+VLOOKUP($D2,Players,10,FALSE),IF(C2="TW1-OUT",IF($D2="","",VLOOKUP($D2,Players,8,FALSE)),IF(C2="TW1-IN",IF($D2="","",VLOOKUP($D2,Players,9,FALSE)+VLOOKUP($D2,Players,10,FALSE)),IF(C2="TW3-OUT",VLOOKUP($D2,Players,8,FALSE)+VLOOKUP($D2,Players,9,FALSE)+VLOOKUP($D2,Players,10,FALSE),0)))))))+P2
Cell 2 (P2)
=IF(C2="TW3-IN",IF($D2="","",VLOOKUP($D2,Players,11,FALSE)),IF(C2="IN2OUT3",VLOOKUP($D2,Players,10,FALSE),IF(C2="IN1OUT3",VLOOKUP($D2,Players,9,FALSE)+VLOOKUP($D2,Players,10,FALSE),0)))
```

Is there a better way of doing this. I have read via a Google search about using a table approach with an array to achieve the same effect. However, in my case the status of a player determines the score of a player and this complicates things for me. Here are the 10 possible statuses (if statements) broken down as follows with how scored are calculated:

```
TransferStatuses Cols
Playing 8+9+10+11
TW1-IN 9+10
TW1-OUT 8
TW2-IN 10+11
TW2-OUT 8+9
TW3-IN 11
TW3-OUT 8+9+10
IN1OUT2 9
IN1OUT3 9+10
IN2OUT3 10
8 = ColK (Transfer Window 0)
9 = ColL(Transfer Window 1)
10 = ColM (Transfer Window 2)
11 = ColN(Transfer Window 3)
```

The ‘score’ array will be along the lines as follows:

```
=VLOOKUP(C2,$S$2:$T$11,2,FALSE)
```

The problem is that I don’t know how to put it all together to make it work, i.e. I have to extend my formula to 300 cells but I don’t know how to implement it so that the array calculates the scores correctly for each player?

Can someone help?

If I understand you correctly I would approach it like this:

Set up a matrix of binary values that specify, for each status, which columns should be added up. Use `OFFSET`

and `MATCH`

to look up the status for each data row and return the array/range of binary values, and `SUMPRODUCT`

to sum it all up. See screenshot:
