### Need an excel formula.

The crude solution is:
=IF(Sheet3!I2="WA",IF(Sheet3!H2="Vancouver","X",IF(Sheet3!H2="Camas","X",IF(Sheet3!H2="Ridgefield","X",IF(Sheet3!H2="Washougal","X",IF(Sheet3!H2="Stevenson","X",IF(Sheet3!H2="Hockinson","X","?City?")))))),"?State?")

Where ?City? appears when the city referenced in H2 is not part of the lookup
and ?State? appears when something other than WA appears in I2.

But there is probably a better way to do this using an array of valid values like the one below:

AL NY TX WA Birmingham Albany Abilene Camas Huntsville Buffalo Galvaston Hockinson Russell New York Houston Ridgefield Stevenson Vancouver Washougal

In the scenario you could stuff the array in another worksheet and use the HLookup function to find the "Sheet3!I2" value in the first row of this array to determine which column to look in, then VLookup "Sheet3!H2" in the column of that array to see if the city referenced exists. Of course this is a much more complex formula, but it would be easily extendible without changing the formula every time.

For mor info, see "Lookup and Reference Functions" in the Excel Help.

### How to do profit and loss a/c in ms excel

Hi saleem_share,
I'm not sure why you would want to use excel to create a P&L, but the same formula would apply to excel as it would for a standard P&L. In one section of the spreadsheet add all of your income accounts. Then Subtract your cost of sales from that. That would equal your Gross Profit. After that add all the rest of your Expenses, and subtract from the Gross Profit, which would give you your net Profit or Loss Example:
Description
Amount
Formula
Sales Product A
1,000.00

Sales Product B
1,000.00

Total Sales
2,000.00
SUM(C1:C2)
Cost of Sales Product A
500.00

Cost of Sales Product B
200.00

Total Cost of Sales
700.00
SUM(C5:C6)
Gross Profit
1,300.00
SUM(C4-C7)

Auto
25.00

Utilities
50.00

Payroll
300.00

Office Supplies
20.00

Total Expenses
395.00

Net Profit
905.00
SUM(C8-C14)

I hope this helps
