Calculated field from multiple IF/OR statements

Avatar

Level 3

I am trying to create what I thought was a simple nested IF statement calculation to populate one choice if one or more options of a multi-select field are selected, another is displayed if different options are selected and both are displayed if there is overlap.  The quick example I started with is below. I'm not sure if the OR operator is the correct choice or if I'm even going in the right direction here.  I realize that there isn't a "false" value on these and maybe that's part of it, but I have tested it without success. 

IF({DE:Deliverable Type}="Autoship","Marcomm"||IF({DE:Deliverable Type}="Blog","Marcomm"||IF({DE:Deliverable Type}="Brand Design","Marcomm"||IF({DE:Deliverable Type}="Packaging","Ecomm"))))
 
So, if one or more of the first three IFs are true, I want the calcuation to indicate Marcomm.  If the last is true, I want it to say Ecomm.  If any of the first three and the last one are true, I want it to say both.  There are several more I need to add to this, but this is my starting point and it's not working as I'd hoped.
 
I also attempted this...
IN({DE:Deliverable Type},"Autoship","Blog","Brand Design","Conference","Direct Mail and Print","Email","Gift Card Product Development","Performance Marketing","Site","Social","TV/YouTube", "Marcomm",""||IN({DE:Deliverable Type},"National Brands ePDP","National Brands PDP","Packaging","Private Brand PDP/ePDP", "Ecomm", ""))
 
Now I think I'm just confusing myself.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

IF({DE:Deliverable Type}="Autoship"||{DE:Deliverable Type}="Blog"||{DE:Deliverable Type}="Brand Design","Marcomm",IF({DE:Deliverable Type}="Packaging","Ecomm"))

I think the above will get you what you need.  It's saying Deliverable Type can = Autoship OR Blog OR Brand Design and if any are true make the field say Marcomm.  IF type is Packaging and true then make it Ecomm.

You could also try a IFIN statement to bundle all those IFs into one array-based IF.

Somethig like:

IFIN({DE:Deliverable Type}="Autoship", "Blog", "Brand Design", "Marcomm", "Packaging", "Ecomm")

 

The rules are:

This expression allows you to look for a specific value in a string of possible values. If the value you are looking for equals one of the provided values, then the

expression returns the trueExpression; otherwise, it returns the falseExpression.

The expression is formatted as follows:

IFIN(value, value1, value2,..., trueExpression, falseExpression)

For example, you can find a specific Project Owner and mark those projects with a specified tag in a project view:

IFIN({owner}.{name},”Jennifer Campbell”,”Rick Kuvec”,”Marketing Team”,”Other Teams”)

In everyday speech, this statement means: “If the Project Owner is Jennifer Campbell or Rick Kuvec, mark this project with ‘Marketing Team’; otherwise, mark it with

‘Other Teams’.”
If you do not want to label the true or false expressions, you must insert a blank label in your statement, such as:

IFIN({owner}.{name},”Jennifer Campbell”,”Rick Kuvec”,””,”Other Teams”)


Or

IFIN({owner}.{name},”Jennifer Campbell”,”Rick Kuvec”,”Marketing Team”,””
