That is how I have it now, but I want the 600 to be split between the fee so 500 gets the 20% and the 100 only gets the 5
User 11/08/2017 - 04:25
And I want it to be based off the threshold input so if it changes
Excelchat Expert 11/08/2017 - 04:27
So, if I am getting this correctly, it is 500+750+100(from the 600)
Excelchat Expert 11/08/2017 - 04:27
Which fulfilled the threshold?\
User 11/08/2017 - 04:28
Yes
User 11/08/2017 - 04:28
But I want it to be flexible so I change the threshold to 1450 it would take 200 times the 5%
Excelchat Expert 11/08/2017 - 04:28
So anything after the third value is also going to get the 20%?
User 11/08/2017 - 04:29
Yes anything above the thershold gets the 20%

Alright, so for your requirement, what I am thinking is to add some cells which will handle some calculations.
Excelchat Expert 11/08/2017 - 04:30
Let me try something first
Excelchat Expert 11/08/2017 - 04:38
Alright, so from here, we can create formulas which will take into account the part where the collections went higher than the threshold.
Excelchat Expert 11/08/2017 - 04:39
You can maintain the same formula that you have, but we can add a modification.
