I need to nest some of the functions, if that's possible.

Generally you can nest functions several levels deep in any spreadsheet.
Typically the maximum is 7 levels but I would not go beyond about 3
because it becomes to difficult to follow the logic. You could have
something like =if( (x or y), if( (a and b),

Hi, Jay,

It's the actual syntax of the nesting I'm interested in. I've learned the syntax varies from one to another, and Calc seems to be slightly different than Excel, which I used years ago.

Trying to avoid a lot of blind trial and error.   LOL

As for the number of levels, I used to know a guy who hated Excel because there was a nesting limit. But he loved Quattro Pro because there were no nesting level limits.
