# Multiply one cell by multiple criteria, depending on the value.

1. ## Multiply one cell by multiple criteria, depending on the value.

Hi,

I hope I'm explaining what I want to do correctly here.

I'm attempting to create a formula that will multiply a cell by multiple options, depending on the value of that cell. This is for sales/commission purposes, for example;

If Jane sold between 1-6 units she would be paid at \$75 per unit, and if she sold between 7-12 units she would be paid at \$100 per unit (13-18 sales = \$150 per unit and 19+ sales = \$200 per unit)

So what I'm looking to do is enter in the total sales made by Jane into a cell, and depending on that number it would then calculate the commission in another cell using the above criteria. See below for an image:

Let me know if further details or an example spread sheet is needed, thank you in advance.  Register To Reply

Either use a little LOOKUP table and tis formula:

=LOOKUP(D2,\$J\$2:\$J\$5,\$K\$2:\$K\$5)

or hard code the values into the formula:

=LOOKUP(D2,{0,6,13,19},{75,100,150,200})

and, yes! a sheet is always helpful. Much more helpful than a non-editable picture of one...  Register To Reply

Hi Glenn, thanks for the reply and apologies for not including a sheet initially.

From your workbook I'm wondering how do I apply it to the table I would be using to calculate the commissions.
I'm not sure if I done it correctly, but I was receiving a result that 7 sales would total \$100, when really it should become 7 * 100 = \$700.

I've edited your workbook (attached) to see if you could help me with this.

Thanks again.  Register To Reply
