headcount growth maybe nested if funtion??

1. headcount growth maybe nested if funtion??

I want to create a formula where headcount increases based on a given month of increase and rate of increase but also that the growth would happen again in a certain number of months. For example headcount increases by 1 in month 4 and the by 1 every six months thereafter.

Hi and welcome to the forum

I would suggest you upload a sample work book, (all sensitive data removed), showing what data you are working with, a few examples of what your expected outcome is, and how you arrived at that
To attach a file to your post,
click advanced (next to quick post),
scroll down until you see "manage file",
click that and select "add files" (top right corner).
click "select files" find your file, click "open" click "upload" click 'done" bottom right. click "submit reply"

Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window.
You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.

Try this (so far) for month 2, copied across...
=IF(MOD(F4,\$D\$5)=0,F5+1,E5)

Explain to me again how the "4 mths" comes in please?

5. Re: headcount growth maybe nested if funtion??

the 4 is the first month that the increase would occur (4th momth). so staff would go from 1 in month 1 to 2 in month 4 to 3 in month 10 to 4 in month 16 etc.

OK try this...
=IF(F4<\$B\$5,E5,E5+IF(MOD(F4-\$B\$5,\$D\$5)=0,1,0))
