I have a table with shipment tracking ID and Carrier,
so i want following solutions.
if Carrier = Fedex then “track1”
if Carrier = DHL then “track2”
if Carrier = Blue Dart then “track3”
if Carrier = DTDC then “track4”
if Carrier = FedexLite then “track5”

I can do it with basic if function but got stuck with multiple conditions.

For a situation like this, where a single field is being checked for different values, a SWITCH function may be easier to understand:

``````SWITCH(Carrier,
"Fedex", "track1",
"DHL", "track2",
"Blue Dart", "track3",
"DTDC", "track4",
"FedexLite", "track5"
)``````

This should work

``IF(Carrier="Fedex","track1",IF(Carrier="DHL","track2",IF(Carrier="Blue Dart","track3",IF(Carrier="DTDC","track4",IF(Carrier="FedexLite","track5","")))))``

@Justin_Barrett, I like that! Thanks for sharing. I didn’t even know it existed. :blush:

It’s a much cleaner formula. :grinning_face_with_big_eyes:
