Is there anyway to create a formula with an 'if' value. for example ('if' A1= 3 then C1 = wed, or if A1 = 2 then C1 = tues.

Use a Nested IF

Can't do it now - on way ou, but you have to write the formula so it's in the usual format of

IF X(TRUE, FALSE)

but then put the A1=2 part in the FALSE section and keep going

Example

=IF(I2=0,"£0.00",IF(I2<11,"£1.75",IF(I2<51,"£1.00",IF(I2<101,"£0.75",IF(I2>=101,"£0.50")))))

Works out a pay rate dependant on the the value of I2...

So it would be

=IF(A2=1,"Monday",IF(A2=2,"Tuesday",IF(A2=3,"Wednesday",IF(A2=4,"Thursday",IF(A2=5,"Friday")))))

=IF(A2=1,C1 ="Monday",IF(A2=2,C1 ="Tuesday",IF(A2=3,C1 ="Wednesday",IF(A2=4,C1 ="Thursday",IF(A2=5,C1 ="Friday")))))

you might also like to try this as part of the formula: add ... if(i2="","",....then formula.
this will keep i2 blank until there is a result to go in it. I use this all the time to keep a spreadsheet unclutter of data.

=TEXT(A1+1,"dddd")

would save a bit of typing ;o)

=CHOOSE(A1,"Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thursday","Friday","Saturday","Sunday")
