Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a nested If function to translate the codes in the Area Code column into full descriptions based on the following criteria:

  • MS = Market Stall
  • OA = Other Activities
  • IE = Import\Export

Copy the function down and make sure that it works.

Try expanding the formula so that you see an appropriate error message if you don't type in one of the above three codes.
