Formulation question
I am trying to create a sliding scale for a payroll functionand would like
to create three different percent calculations on one cell based on the amount. for instance if the cell value is 01200.00*45% if the value is over 1200.00*47% if value is over 2000.00 *50% I have tried to do this for hours but having NO luck thanks for any HELP

If your value is in cell A1 then try
=IF(A12000,A1*50%,IF(A11200,A1*47%,A1*45%))  John MOS Master Instructor Office 2000, 2002 & 2003 Please reply & rate any replies you get Ice Hockey rules (especially the Wightlink Raiders) "TJ Bartel" wrote: I am trying to create a sliding scale for a payroll functionand would like to create three different percent calculations on one cell based on the amount. for instance if the cell value is 01200.00*45% if the value is over 1200.00*47% if value is over 2000.00 *50% I have tried to do this for hours but having NO luck thanks for any HELP

Formulation question
A more flexible solution would be to create a lookup table (D5:E7 in my
example): 0 0.45 1200 0.47 2000 0.5 then with the value to convert in H5, put this formula in I5: =H5*(VLOOKUP(H5,$D$5:$E$7,2)) This gives you a = relationship, not the in John's formula. If you need , you can subtract 0.01 from the values in D5:D7. This formula is an improvement because the cutoff values and percentages are contained in a single table. If you need to adjust them you only need to change the table, not every formula that relies on the values.
