## Unanswered: Using multiple IF statements to do the SCORING

I have to do the scoring of a list, giving the scores from "Minus Two -2" to the "Plus Two 2" based on the criteria given below -

Scoring Criteria -

If > 4 ------------------------------ 2
If > 2 and < 4 ---------------------- 1
If < 2 and > - 2 -------------------- 0
If < - 2 and > - 4 ------------------ -1
If < - 4 ---------------------------- -2

I do not want to do this through Vlookup method, instead I prefer using the nested IF statements. But somehow I am not being able to get it right. Could someone please suggest a solution to this.

Thanks

Found solution on another forum. The correct formula is -

=IF(A2>4,2,IF(AND(A2>2,A2<4),1,IF(AND(A2<2,A2>(-2)),0,IF(AND(A2<-2,A2>-4),-1,IF(A2<-4,-2,A2)))))

or

=IF(A2>=4,2,IF(A2>=2,1,IF(A2>=-2,0,IF(A2>=-4,-1,-2))))

Thanks
