Hi
I need to calculate several IF AND OR statements.
1) if value is =1 return 1
2) if value is = 2 return 2
3) if value is greater then 10 but less then 50 multiple by .10 (10%). if value is greater then 5 return 5
4) if value is greater then 50 multiple by .25 (25%). if value is greater then 10 return 10

what am I supposed to do now?

Excelchat Expert

Okay, I've read your problem statement and it seems you need help with making a nested IF statement. Do you have a file you're currently working on?

User

no I need to create this calculation

Excelchat Expert

I see, noted on that. We can just create a sample data then in the document preview to the right.

Excelchat Expert

Can you see the values to the right?

User
08/09/2018 - 08:15

yes

User

if value is 1 return 1 but if value is >1 <10 return 2

Excelchat Expert

There are some conflicting conditions in your problem statement. It would be best if we identify first the expected output for each value based on what you've identified.

Excelchat Expert
08/09/2018 - 08:17

Okay I see. Can you as well explain further the other conditions then?

Excelchat Expert
08/09/2018 - 08:18

What if the value is 10?

User
08/09/2018 - 08:18

if value is > 10 but less then 50 multiple by .25. answer returned can not be more then 5. if it is more then 5 return 5

Excelchat Expert
08/09/2018 - 08:19

Noted on that. What if the value is 10?

User
08/09/2018 - 08:19

the first condition is >1 >= 10

Excelchat Expert
08/09/2018 - 08:20

Noted on that. I was confused back then since the condition provided was only <10. But let me take that then into consideration.

User
08/09/2018 - 08:20

then last condition is 51+then multiple by .10 but value retuned can not be greater then 25

Excelchat Expert
08/09/2018 - 08:21

Noted on that.

User
08/09/2018 - 08:21

so there are 4 conditions

User

thanks

this is what I started with but cant seem to get past it =IF(AND(A1>=5,A1<50),A1*0.25,5)

User
08/09/2018 - 08:23

=IF(AND(A1>=1,A1<10),A1*0.25,5)

Excelchat Expert
08/09/2018 - 08:23

I can provide you with a simpler formula that doesn't actually need the AND part, just a nested IF equation.

User

nice

User

thx

Excelchat Expert

Already done! Please see the document preview for your review.

Excelchat Expert
08/09/2018 - 08:24

In cell C3, the formula would be: =IF(B3>50,MIN(25,B3*0.1),IF(B3>10,MIN(5,B3*0.25),IF(B3>1,2,1)))

Excelchat Expert
08/09/2018 - 08:25

This first checks from highest value to lowest according to the conditions provided.

Excelchat Expert
08/09/2018 - 08:26

So basically, it first checks if the value is more than 50. If so, it checks if this value times 0.10 with 25 and returns the smaller value.

Excelchat Expert
08/09/2018 - 08:26

If not, it then checks if the value is more than 10. If so, it again checks if this value times 0.25 is smaller than 5, and returns the smaller value.

Excelchat Expert
08/09/2018 - 08:27

On the third IF, it just checks if the value is above 1. If so, it returns 2. Otherwise, it just returns 1.

User

I see, ya that is so much easier. thx.
