    Macro for Nested IF - Too Many Arguments

    Good evening,

    I'm trying a nested if function but getting the error message that I have too many arguments. The formula is as follows

    =IFERROR(IF(AND(H2>=1, H2<=7), B2*150, C2*110, D2*90, E2*75,F2*60, G2*60, IF(H2=8, B2*170, C2*125, D2*100, E2*85,F2*65,G2*60, IF(H2=9, B2*180, C2*135, D2*110,E2*90, F2*70,G2*60, IF(H2=10, B2*190, C2*145, D2*115, E2*95,F2*75,G2*60, IF(AND(H2>=11,H2<=20), B2*210, C2*160, D2*125, E2*105,F2*85,G2*60, IF(AND(H2>=21, H2<=22), B2*230, C2*175, D2*140, E2*115,F2*90,G2*60, IF(AND(H2>=23, H2<=24),B2*255, C2*190, D2*155, E2*125,F2*100,G2*60, IF(AND(H2>=25, H2<=26), B2*275, C2*205, D2*165, E2*135,F2*110, G2*60, IF(AND(H2>=27, H2<=28), B2*300, C2*225, D2*180, E2*150,F2*120,G2*60, IF(AND(H2>=29, H2<=30), B2*320, C2*240, D2*190, E2*160,F2*130, G2*60, IF(AND(H2>=31, H2<=32), B2*345, C2*260, D2*205, E2*170,F2*140, G2*60, IF(AND(H2>=33, H2<=34), B2*370, C2*275, D2*220, E2*185,F2*150, G2*60, IF(AND(H2>=35, H2<=36), B2*390, C2*290, D2*235, E2*195,F2*155, G2*60, IF(AND(H2>=37, H2<=38), B2*460, C2*345, D2*275, E2*230,F2*185, G2*60, IF(AND(H2>=39, H2<=50), B2*485, C2*365, D2*290, E2*240,F2*195, G2*60),0)


    What are my alternatives to this if function. I'm assuming a Macro VBA is my best bet. Any assistance would be great appreciated

    Re: Macro for Nested IF - Too Many Arguments

    The structure of an IF function is =IF(Condition, result if True, result if False) and a simple nested IF function is =IF(Condition 1, result if True, IF(Condition 2, result if True, result if False)). You can build on that ... =IF(Condition 1, result if True, IF(Condition 2, result if True, IF(Condition 3, result if True, result if False))) and so on.

    That isn't what you have ... even with the AND.

    Re: Macro for Nested IF - Too Many Arguments

    No idea. What are you trying to do?


    Attach a sample workbook (not a picture or pasted copy). Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and then scroll down to Manage Attachments to open the upload window.

    Re: Macro for Nested IF - Too Many Arguments

    I'm trying to determine commissions based on the picture snapshot of comp doc except the last column is HSD Only instead of Previous Period Lead Connect. I was using the if statements because the multipliers change based on total connects. There is a before and after in the 'Sample Commissions' document

    Re: Macro for Nested IF - Too Many Arguments

    I see my mistake. My statement should actually show as follows but I'm still receiving the too many arguments error.

    =IFERROR(IF(AND(H2>=1, H2<=7), ((B2*150)+ (C2*110)+ (D2*90)+( E2*75)+(F2*60)+(G2*60)), IF(H2=8, ((B2*170)+(C2*125)+(D2*100)+(E2*85)+(F2*65)+(G2*60)), IF(H2=9, ((B2*180)+(C2*135)+ (D2*110)+(E2*90)+(F2*70)+(G2*60)), IF(H2=10, ((B2*190)+ (C2*145)+ (D2*115)+ (E2*95) +(F2*75)+(G2*60)), IF(AND(H2>=11,H2<=20), ((B2*210)+ (C2*160)+ (D2*125)+ (E2*105)+(F2*85)+(G2*60)), IF(AND(H2>=21, H2<=22), ((B2*230)+ (C2*175)+ (D2*140)+(E2*115)+(F2*90)+(G2*60)), IF(AND(H2>=23, H2<=24),((B2*255)+ (C2*190)+ (D2*155)+ (E2*125)+(F2*100)+(G2*60)), IF(AND(H2>=25, H2<=26), ((B2*275)+ (C2*205)+ (D2*165)+ (E2*135)+(F2*110)+ (G2*60)), IF(AND(H2>=27, H2<=28), ((B2*300)+ (C2*225)+ (D2*180)+ (E2*150)+(F2*120)+(G2*60)), IF(AND(H2>=29, H2<=30), ((B2*320)+ (C2*240)+ (D2*190)+ (E2*160)+(F2*130)+ (G2*60)), IF(AND(H2>=31, H2<=32), ((B2*345)+ (C2*260)+ (D2*205)+ (E2*170)+(F2*140)+ (G2*60)), IF(AND(H2>=33, H2<=34), ((B2*370)+ (C2*275)+(D2*220)+(E2*185)+(F2*150)+ (G2*60)), IF(AND(H2>=35, H2<=36), ((B2*390)+ (C2*290)+ (D2*235)+ (E2*195)+(F2*155)+(G2*60)), IF(AND(H2>=37, H2<=38), ((B2*460)+(C2*345)+(D2*275)+(E2*230)+(F2*185)+ (G2*60)), IF(AND(H2>=39, H2<=50), ((B2*485)+ (C2*365)+(D2*290)+(E2*240)+(F2*195)+(G2*60))),0)

    Re: Macro for Nested IF - Too Many Arguments

    Note, you have an excess of brackets. When you multiply two values, it takes priority over summing. So, you don't need brackets round a multiplication. And you can also lose the brackets round the sum itself. The formula can be significantly reduced. I've edited the first few lines:

    Out of interest, this is the formula with all excess brackets removed.
