no problem
Excelchat Expert 16/08/2018 - 03:00
Ok, where do you need to add the formula?
User 16/08/2018 - 03:01
I dont know, I need to work out how much the fees will be for a client with \$550000 for example
Excelchat Expert 16/08/2018 - 03:04
Ok to confirm, you need to charge the Fee against client account depending on the criteria. In your example in C9, that would fall under 0.37% charge correct?
User 16/08/2018 - 03:05
No, it is a cumulative fee, so the client with \$550,000 is charged \$1,180, then \$2,290, then 0.17% of \$50,000
Excelchat Expert 16/08/2018 - 03:08
So that would be the total of \$6,610 correct?
User 16/08/2018 - 03:08
I need to do this analysis on many accounts, not just one. I know how to do it manually, or with a calculator. I need to know how I can have a spreadsheet with a hundred or so client accounts.
User 16/08/2018 - 03:09
No, the answer is \$1180 plus \$2290 plus 0.17% of \$50,000 - so total is \$
User 16/08/2018 - 03:09
sorry total is \$3470
Excelchat Expert 16/08/2018 - 03:12
Ok sorry the requirement is a bit complex, please give me some time to work out with the formula
User 16/08/2018 - 03:13
