The problem is that Excel permits up to 7 level of nesting
Generally one use a lookup formula (see Help on VLOOKUP) when an IF cannot
accommodate all the choices
But in your case you could use =IF(M11=0,0,IF(M11>159,80,M11-80))
or =IF(M11=0,0,MAX(80,M11-80))
Not clear what you want when M11 is , for example, 145.
best wishes
