vba – Excel nested IF function, 3 cases

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment


I have a column A, that contains either one of the following values:


I want to write a function that basically does this:

if A1 is "DATEnone" or A1 is DATETIME:
 A1 = "D"
elif A1 is "noneTIME":
 A1 = "T"
 A1 = "S"

how can I do that in an excel cell function?

How to&Answers:

Copy-Paste this code in a new module and hit F5 to run the macro.

Sub Main()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Dim c As Range
    For Each c In Range("A1:A" & Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row)
        If StrComp("DATEnone", c, 1) = 0 Or StrComp("DATETIME", c, 1) = 0 Then
            c = "D"
        ElseIf StrComp("noneTime", c, 1) = 0 Then
            c = "T"
            c = "S"
        End If
    Next c
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

This code iterates over column A and replaces the contents based on the conditions you specified.

And if you wanted just a function then stick this formula

=IF(OR(A1="DATEnone", A1="DATETIME"),"D", IF(A1="noneTime","T","S"))

in cell B1 and drag it down the B column
