where the points are over 40 as in 47 i need to times the 7 by 20 to give the sum of £140, to save me having to manually work it out each month
Excelchat Expert 06/03/2018 - 03:16
so amount has to be multiplied is after 40
User 06/03/2018 - 03:16
correct
Excelchat Expert 06/03/2018 - 03:16
so for 50 amount to be multiplied is 10
User 06/03/2018 - 03:17
would be 10 * 20, each point over 40 is times by £20
