    Creating function in Excel 2010

    Hi,

    I have a question I hope you can help me with.

    I want a function to work like this:

    When a number in one cell is less then 1000 it should return in another 0. When it pass 1000 (for example 1200) it should return (1200-1000)*0,29 = 58
    If the number in the cell is 2000 it should return (2000-1000) * 0.29 = 290

    BUT, is it for example 900 (less than 1000) it should be 0.

    Hope this explaination wasn't to bad - if you need any further information - please ask

    Kind Regards
    JohnnyWalker

    Hi,

    One way

    =IF(A1<1000,0,(A1-1000)*0.29)

    Welcome to the forum!

    So, I'm going to point out that I thought this question was going to be about user defined functions, when instead this is more about, which is logic-dependent algebra.

    Okay.
    A1: the cell with the number
    B1: the cell with the output function

    Note that this throws 0 for A1 = 1000 whether it's LESS THAN as well as LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO, because of the algebra; so it doesn't matter in this case which we use, but I did not from the OP understand which way the logic was supposed to take it.

    I know it's a little late, but here's an alternate version of the formula:
