Complex IF(AND statement to manipulate weighted grades  better way?
I have been using the following statement to evaluate a calculated grade. This statement will check to see if there is student listed, if not will remain blank but if it is true will determine a letter grade based on first that a particular grade is above 69.5, then it will determine the letter grade. Works great, but now I need it to also look at an additional range of cells (say K3:W3) to determine that each of those is ALSO above 69.5 before it returns a passing grade otherwise it will be an "F". I managed to get it to work by individually checking each cell with additional *AND statements BUT it would not ignore a blank cell, it treated it like a less than 69.5 score. Additionally this makes for a VERY long formula and I was wondering if there was a better, easier way. I am just now starting to use minimal VBA and cannot find a better solution as of yet. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
=IF(D3="","",IF(AND(AF3>=59.5)*AG3<69.5,"F",IF(AG3 <79.5,"C",IF(AG3<89.5,"B","A")))) This is what works except for the blank cells: =IF(D3="","",IF(AND(K3>=69.5)*AND(L3>=69.5)*AND(M3 >=69.5)*AND(O3>=69.5)*AND(P3>=69.5)*AND(Q3>=69.5)* AND(R3>=69.5)*AND(S3>=69.5)*AND(T3>=69.5)*AND(U3>= 69.5)*AND(V3>=69.5)*AND(W3>=69.5)*AND(AF3>=59.5)*A G3<69.5,"F",IF(AG3<79.5,"C",IF(AG3<89.5,"B","A"))) ) I suppose I could also add a check to see if they are <> "" but that is another 13 evaluations.... Thanks for looking. David

Your AND functions are doing nothing meaningful in the formulae you posted, so you may as well delete them and use just:
=IF(D3="","",IF((AF3>=59.5)*AG3<69.5,"F",IF(AG3<79 .5,"C",IF(AG3<89.5,"B","A")))) for the first formula, for example. As for the larger problem, it appears amenable to an array formula such as: =IF((SUM(IF(K3:AF3>=69.5,1,0))=COUNT(K3:AF3))*AG3< 69.5,"F",IF(AG3 <79.5,"C",IF(AG3<89.5,"B","A"))) Array formulae are input with CtrlShiftEnter.

Did you try the array formula I posted? You can add the D3 test if you wish:
=IF(D3="","",IF((SUM(IF(K3:AF3>=69.5,1,0))=COUNT(K 3:AF3))*AG3<69.5,"F",IF(AG3 <79.5,"C",IF(AG3<89.5,"B","A")))) No AND tests are necessary blanks in the K3:AF3 range will be ignored.

I did try it, it returns ##### (VALUE)  Also, I am not sure if I am reading your suggestion correctly but I need to check each cell individually to be greater than 69.5, the "SUM" function is confusing me. TIA

Perhaps, then, you could attach a workbook to a post with some representative data. You do this via the paperclip symbol on the 'Go Advanced' tab at the bottom of this screen.

Example Workbook
This all is connected to column AI on the "grades" sheet. Trying to determine the letter grade but certain grades/grade sets must also exceed 69.5 in order to make a passing grade.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, David

Please see attached
The only things that you have to check is the range that needs to be controlled for values <69.5 ( just adapt it) and if the AH cell is the one to be tested to obtain the grade (change it in the LOOKUP function if need be)

Help me see what I am missing, it still doesn't do what I need.
Checking there is a student for the row by seeing if D3 has an ID number > If false, output "" > If true, check if each cell of range Q:AG is above 69.5 (ignoring blank cells), > if false, output "F" > if true, output the letter grade based on the average in AH Sounds so simple but is driving me crazy. Thank you for your patience, David

Is it so difficult to adapt my proposition to your needs?
I'll leave it up to you to add absolute/relative references if that is not asking too much... =IF(D3="","",IF(SUMPRODUCT((Q3:AG3<69,5)*(Q3:AG3>0 )),"f",LOOKUP(AH3,{69.5,79.5,89.5},{"c","b","a"})) )

If I have understood you correct.
