# Multiple conditions& formulas-Simple for you, not for me!

1. ## Multiple conditions& formulas-Simple for you, not for me!

I'm a beginner, using Excel/ Office 365 and we have a simple commission worksheet that pulls values from other workbooks.

Column B is name, C is commission, D is shortage, E is adjusted commission (c plus d)

I can't figure out how to get the syntax correct for the following conditions for column E:

If cell B is zero (no name)/ blank, then make value of Column E=0 OR if column c<\$175 and d<0, then add c and b, if not, then return value of 175 OR if c10>175 and d10<0, add c10 and d10, otherwise return value of c10

Its a simple report pulling from other workbooks- We pay a minimum commission of 175 minus any shortages, but if the amount reported is greater than 175, they get the greater amount minus any shortages.

Columns b, c & d are pulling the correct values, but I don't know how to formulate to get column E to figure out all the different conditions.

Basically, if no name is in Column b, ignore everything else and report zero, otherwise, look at the conditions of c & d to report a minimum of 175 minus shortage, or the greater reported amount minus shortage.

Thanks for any and all help!

a sample spreadsheet - see yellow banner - with expected results would help a lot
