CHOOSE
Returns a value from a list, given an index number.
Syntax:
CHOOSE(index; value1; value2; ... value30)
- value1 ... value30 are up to 30 values, each of which may be text, a number, a logical value, a reference or a formula.
- index is an index number specifying which of value1 ... value30 to return; 1 returns value1, 2 returns value2, etc.
Example:
CHOOSE(1; "dog";"cat")
- returns the text dog.
CHOOSE(2; "dog"; 65.4)
- returns the number 65.4.
CHOOSE(3; "dog"; 65.4; B5)
- returns the reference B5, so that =CHOOSE(3; "dog"; 65.4; B5) in a cell shows the contents of cell B5 in that cell (it is equivalent to =B5).
SUM(CHOOSE(1; B4:B5; B6))
- returns the sum of the numbers in the range B4:B5.
CHOOSE(2;SUM(B1:C1);SQRT(9))
- returns 3, the square root of 9.
