# Are Excel "if" statements within project possible?

## Are Excel "if" statements within project possible?

(OP)
In the edit formula field of the customize fields area i'm trying to replicate the following Excel formula:-

=if(cellref1>cellref2,"true","False")

However althought i can write the formula in project,no text appears in the selected cell if the expression is correct or otherwise.

I've removed the "" and tried again, but i'm not even sure if its possible!

Am I wasting my time?

### RE: Are Excel "if" statements within project possible?

(OP)
Just in case anyone else tries to do this i've sorted it!

So to run three levels of warning as an if statment the trick is to change the columns to "date1" &"date2" etc and then have the answer field as "number1".

then apply:-

IIf([Date2]=[Current Date],1,IIf([Date2]=([Current Date]+1),3,IIf([Date2]=([Current Date]+2),3,IIf([Date2]=([Current Date]+3),3,IIf([Date2]=([Current Date]+4),3,IIf([Date2]=([Current Date]+5),3,IIf([Date2]<[Current Date],2,0)))))))

And it then works!
