I have an IFS Formulas as below:
=IFS(F2=$B$12,$C$12,F2=$B$13,$C$13,F2=$B$14,$C$14,F2=$B$15,$C$15,F2=$B$16,$C$16,F2=$B$17,$C$17,F2=$B$18,$C$18)
With a list of the Windows 10 Builds that can be on another sheet or at the bottom.

@dbeato Thanks for that,
No idea how it works but it does :D

@dbeato Thanks for that,
No idea how it works but it does :DThe IFS formula is just a bunch of "if" stacked together
=IFS(F2=$B$12,$C$12,F2=$B$13,$C$13,F2=$B$14,$C$14,F2=$B$15,$C$15,F2=$B$16,$C$16,F2=$B$17,$C$17,F2=$B$18,$C$18)
Is the same as:
if F2=B12 then result=C12
if F2=B13 then result=C13
if F2=B14 then result=C14
if F2=B15 then result=C15
etcSo basically just looking at the table with the windows build numbers and versions.
The
$
inside the cell names is just to tell Excel what to do with it when you copy the formula to another cell.
$B$12 just means B12 will always be the absolute cell B12 regardless of where you copy the formula. 
Interesting.
The IFS statement breaks down like this.If $B$12 (which is column B, row 12), then enter value from $C$12 (i.e. the data from column C, row 12),
It keeps checking like this until there is a match, or the end is reached.

=LOOKUP(F12, $B$12:$B$25, $C$12:$C$25)
Then you can add some more rows with version numbers if needed. Without changing any formulas.

etcYeah when i look at the whole thing like that makes sense :)

Was overwhelmed by all the $ in there :D

VLOOKUP is made for this. Although XLOOKUP is the new VLookup.
Here's the formula in Column I of my screen shot. Don't worry about the $, they just mean the formula should not auto advance when you copy and paste to other cells.
=VLOOKUP(H4,$C$21:$D$25,2,FALSE)
The "False" means EXACT Match, please leave it as False.

He only has A and B as noted.
@hobbit666 said in Excel Help:
A  B
Desktop1 Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 10.0.19041So it would be more like this, assuming that the data starts in row 2 and the lookup table starts on Row 21
=VLOOKUP(RIGHT(B2,10),$A$21:$B$25,2,FALSE)

True,
I did separate it to get the other ways working :)
But if i needed to redo it on the untouched data, this would work toThanks All

VLOOKUP is made for this. Although XLOOKUP is the new VLookup.I did already mention LOOKUP in a couple of posts above.
But the power of the IFS is really when you just have a few different options and put them directly in the formula. Then you don't need a lookup table at all.
The SWITCH makes it even better as that is the equivalent to a case statement.
=SWITCH(F2, "10.0.19043", "21H1", "10.0.19042", "20H2", "10.0.19041", "2004", "10.0.18363", "1909", "10.0.17763", "1809", "OLD!")
