How Do I Use The Switch Function To Evaluate Multiple Conditions And Return Different Results?

The SWITCH function in Google Sheets allows you to evaluate multiple conditions and return different results based on those conditions. This can be useful when you want to perform different actions based on a specific value or range of values.

Here’s how to use the SWITCH function:

  1. In the cell where you want to display the result of the SWITCH function, enter the formula: =SWITCH(expression, value1, result1, [value2, result2], …)
  2. Replace “expression” with the value or formula that you want to evaluate.
  3. Replace “value1” with the value that you want to compare to the expression.
  4. Replace “result1” with the value or formula that you want to return if the expression equals value1.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each additional condition that you want to evaluate.

Here’s an example of how to use the SWITCH function:

=SWITCH(A1, 1, “apple”, 2, “banana”, 3, “orange”, “unknown”)

This formula compares the value in cell A1 to the values 1, 2, and 3. If the value in cell A1 is 1, the formula returns “apple”. If the value is 2, the formula returns “banana”. If the value is 3, the formula returns “orange”. If the value is none of these, the formula returns “unknown”.
