6. Click the Row_num box and nest a MATCH function. Select cell B21 for the Lookup_value and cells A3:A28 on the Mailings sheet for the Lookup_array. Click the Match_type argument box and type 0.
7. Click INDEX in the Formula bar. Click the Column_num box and nest a second MATCH function to look up cell D3 on the Mailings sheet in the lookup array A3:D3.
8. Click the Match_type box and type 0 (Figure 6-106) and click OK. The result displays as 343.00.Figure 6-106 Nested MATCH and INDEX functions

7. Copy the formula to cell C7 and edit the Field argument to use the fourth column (# Responses).
8. Use DSUM in cells B8:C9 to calculate results for the two remaining departments.
4. Use SUM in cells B10:C10.
5. Format all values as Comma Style with no decimal places.
6. Create an IFS function to display a response rating. Note: If your version of Excel does not include the IFS function, build the following nested IF function =IF(C7/B7>=20%,\$C\$15,IF(C7/B7>=15%,\$C\$16,IF(C7/B7>=11%,\$C\$17,\$C\$18))) to display the rating.
1. Click cell D7. The response rate and ratings are shown in rows 14:18.
2. Start an IFS function and select C7 for the Logical_test1 argument. Type / for division and select cell B7. Type >=20% to complete the test.
