yes sure you can see below solution from mine ..... you can use upto 36 IF's and 37 conditions ....

you can paste this code in B3 and in A3 write alphabet from A-Z and numeric from 0-9 and try to write some special char and see the result in B3 ..... There are many ways to get the same result but i especially made this formula to know how of nested IF's ........

```B3=IF(OR(A3="a",A3="b",A3="c",A3="d",A3="e",A3="f",A3="g",A3="h"),IF(A3="a",1,IF(A3="b",2,IF(A3="c",3,IF(A3="d",4,IF(A3="e",5,IF(A3="f",6,IF(A3="g",7,8))))))),IF(OR(A3="i",A3="j",A3="k",A3="l",A3="m",A3="n",A3="o"),IF(A3="i",9,IF(A3="j",10,IF(A3="k",11,IF(A3="l",12,IF(A3="m",13,IF(A3="n",14,15)))))),IF(OR(A3="p",A3="q",A3="r",A3="s",A3="t",A3="u"),IF(A3="p",16,IF(A3="q",17,IF(A3="r",18,IF(A3="s",19,IF(A3="t",20,21))))),IF(OR(A3="v",A3="w",A3="x",A3="y",A3="z"),IF(A3="v",22,IF(A3="w",23,IF(A3="x",24,IF(A3="y",25,26)))),IF(OR(A3=1,A3=2,A3=3,A3=4),IF(A3=1,"N1",IF(A3=2,"N2",IF(A3=3,"N3","N4"))),IF(OR(A3=5,A3=6,A3=7),IF(A3=5,"N5",IF(A3=6,"N6","N7")),IF(OR(A3=8,A3=9),IF(A3=8,"N8","N9"),IF(A3=0,"Zero","Non of Single Alphabet / Single Numerics"))))))))
```
