Excel if/or function help

    Hey guys,

    hope this is in the correct place. I'm looking for some help with an excel sheet I'm trying to create to track bets/winnings.

    see attached image.

    What i want to do is along the lines of:

    if result = w, then win = odds * stake; if result = L, then win = 0

    I just cant translate that into excel language :o

    Thanks for any help

    Only the win outcome is relevant really so I'd suggest entering the following in the financial outcome:


    where c2 = Odds, d2 = stake

    I've not assumed the stake back.

    I have merely multiplied the odds by the stake here.

    Assuming "Odds" is column B:
    =IF(B1="L", 0, IF(B1="W", C1*D1,""))
