You can view the preview again
User 07/12/2017 - 09:10
ok
User 07/12/2017 - 09:12
Maybe I should have wrote that over here?
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:12
What are the percentage off for the ranges?
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:13
and which cell i need to implement?
User 07/12/2017 - 09:13
10% for the first 25000
User 07/12/2017 - 09:13
20 for anything above 25000 to 40000
User 07/12/2017 - 09:13
25 for any remaining balance after 40000
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:13
ok
User 07/12/2017 - 09:14
I did row 2 with an IF statement but cant seem to get row 3
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:15
You are comparing with A4 cell for row 2?
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:15
And how about for row 3?
User 07/12/2017 - 09:16
no comparing A2 with A4
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:17
=IF(A4<=25000,A4,"25000")
User 07/12/2017 - 09:17
for example
User 07/12/2017 - 09:17
the volume is 55000 so the first 25000 is 10% disvcount
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:18
Ok. got it. I am working on it.
User 07/12/2017 - 09:18
then in A3 I want it to return a number that is 14999 or less if the number is less than 14999
User 07/12/2017 - 09:19
Then in row 4 the remaining balance left if over the volume in teal, if it's zero then return a aero
User 07/12/2017 - 09:19
zero
User 07/12/2017 - 09:19
omg, it's even hard to explain let alone create the formula
User 07/12/2017 - 09:19
LOL
User 07/12/2017 - 09:20
1st-25000 10% discount
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:20
10% is based on 25000 or original value of 55000?
User 07/12/2017 - 09:20
2nd - if the amount exceeds 25000 then either that amount at 20% or the 14999 at 20%
User 07/12/2017 - 09:20
yes
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:21
10% is based on 25000 or original value of 55000?
User 07/12/2017 - 09:21
yes
User 07/12/2017 - 09:22
10% of 25000
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:22
ok
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:24
>40000? 25% of ?
User 07/12/2017 - 09:24
For 14999, if the amount is less then it needs to come back with the remaining balance
User 07/12/2017 - 09:24
If the number in teal is greater than 40000 then it needs to calculate 25% discount on that remaining number
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:25
ok.
User 07/12/2017 - 09:25
but if there is no remaining balance it needs to come back as a zero
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:25
In this case it is =55000-45001
User 07/12/2017 - 09:25
yes, but not quite that simple
User 07/12/2017 - 09:26
if a balance then show that number, if no balance then show 0
User 07/12/2017 - 09:26
And that's the same with row A2
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:28
Please test till A3 cell by changing the number in A1 cell?
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:28
I am working on the last one meanwhile.
User 07/12/2017 - 09:29
k changed
User 07/12/2017 - 09:31
Formula doesn't work as cell A2 should come back with 25000 no matter what number you put in there
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:31
25000 of 10% = 2500?
User 07/12/2017 - 09:32
ohhh.... not trying to get 10% off the 25000
User 07/12/2017 - 09:32
can you see the entire stuff i pasted to the sheet?
User 07/12/2017 - 09:33
look down at the other example
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:33
ok
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:33
There is no % applied
User 07/12/2017 - 09:33
No, just trying to calculate the volume so then I can apply the discount to that volume
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:34
ok
User 07/12/2017 - 09:35
OHHHH I think you got it
Excelchat Expert 07/12/2017 - 09:38
Ok. I have updated the formulas.
