=IF(((Sheet1!E6="x")*OR(Sheet1!F6="x")*OR(E6="x")*OR(F6="x")),"x",(IF((E6=Sheet1!E6)*AND(F6=Sheet1!F6),3,(IF((E6-F6)=(Sheet1!E6-Sheet1!F6),2,(IF((SIGN(E6-F6))=(SIGN(Sheet1!E6-Sheet1!F6)),1,0)))))))

I want it that if any of the 4 first statements = x that it returns a value
of x. All the fields in Sheet1!E^ and Sheet1!F^ are x.  The problem i am
getting is that its returning a value of #VALUE.  Not the x i am expecting.
It seems the or statement isnt working the way i expect.
