Another off-the-top-of-my-head stab at the problem, but in a pull down
list, doesn't the cell maybe actually store the index of the list, so
assuming "JAN" is the first item in the list, "AUG" should be either
the 7th (zero-based list) or the 8th (1 based list) entry, so try:




Might not work, I haven't tested, just my first thought on the matter.

The only thing wrong with your example is the dot separating the

There is nothing in the basic structure you are illustrating here
that would stimulate a #NAME? error, so the problem must be in your
cell reference or the "do calculation" - the parts you've not shown.

Thanks Brian!! The dot separating the arguments was "finger trouble" 
when I wrote the eMail!!

I think I've tracked down the problem but not the answer....

My full statement is - =IF(H44="AUG",Paid.D21,"")

Paid.D21 is the value I want to insert if the month is correct.
H44 contains the month, ie AUG - and this seems to be the problem. It
is a pull-down list of months.
If I enter the month by hand the IF statement works but with it being
a pull-down list it does not work.

Is there a way round this??
