# Calculate A Nested IF Function In Speadsheet

Oct 27, 2009

I'm writing a spreadsheet where I need to calculate a nested IF function (I think), and I am unsure of how to do it.

The problem is this:
The total \$ value of the quote is entered, then depending on two variables, a rebate may be deducted from this total value. The first variable is eligibility (a Y/N response), the second is the type of project - there are two types of project and each attract a different rebate amount.

So I have:

A: total quote \$
B: Eligibility - 'Y' or 'N' (if 'Y', then value of 'C' is deducted from 'A'), (if 'N', then no value is deducted from 'A')
C: Type - '1' or '2' (if '1', then 'C' = \$1000), (if '2', then 'C' = \$1600)
D: final result

## Check If Speadsheet Already Open In Network Drive By Another User?

Jul 28, 2012

I want a simple VBA code that when run will check if a particular spreadsheet that exists on a Network Drive is already open or not by another user. Imagine there are 3 users A, B & C

The network path for example is : S:Department1TeamAConsolidated Report"

The spreadheet name is : Consolidated Database.xls

If the spreadheet that is on S:Department1TeamAConsolidated ReportConsolidated Database.xls is already open by User A then User B should get a message that "File is already open"

I have the below code which I got from a website which I kind of tweaked but it doesnt work.

Dim WbookCheck As Workbook
On Error Resume Next
Set WbookCheck = Workbooks("Consolidated Database.xls ")[code]......

## Nested IF Formula: Calculate The Commission For My Employees

Feb 22, 2007

I am trying to write a command to calculate the commission for my employees. There commission is based on the spread between sale price and cost. For example:

If Profit is between \$1.00 and \$2.00 - commission = 15%
If Profit is between \$2.01 and \$4.00 - commission = 20%
If Profit is between \$4.01 and \$6.00 - commission = 25%
If Profit is > than \$6.00 then - commission = 30%

I am able to calculate the first level ex: =IF((C3-B3)<=2,"15%") It Displays the 15% in the formatted cell. (C3-B3 is the profit spread). How can I include the other 3 commission levels in the formula to display the correct commission % based on profit spread?

## Nested IF Command: Calculate Today's Date Minus

Apr 19, 2009

The range B7:K7 contains columns of "dates" and "characters" like "A", "B" and "C" . Range D2 = Today's date. If Range C7 is blank then it should calculate Today's date minus Column B7 (i.e D2-B7) so on:

B7 = "01-Apr-2009", C7 = "02-Apr-2009", D=7 = Status as "(A)"
B7 = Submitted Date, C7 = Received Date, D7 = Status
Difference Between Today's Date and "B7" date is required if "C7" is Blank date. Otherwise it should search next group (E, F)

=IF(AND(ISBLANK(C7),NOT(ISBLANK(B7))),D2-B7,IF(AND(ISBLANK(F7),NOT(ISBLANK(E7))),D2-E7,IF(AND(ISBLANK(I7),NOT(ISBLANK(H7))),D2-H7,IF(AND(ISBLANK(L7),NOT(ISBLANK(K7))),D2-K7,"--")))))

## Nested If Statement - Calculate Value Based On All Of Active Cells In Column

Sep 11, 2013

I am putting together a procedure to calculate a value based on all of the active cells in column "A" and a couple other conditions. "k" is my variable to put a value into (k,8) until all the active cells in column A have a corresponding value in (k,8)

I have my scenarios all built out into If statements and the code runs....but no value is being added to cell (k,8) for any of the rows with entries in column "A" when the procedure is finished running. Depending on the values in (k,2) and (k,3) there are four different ways the value in (k,8) needs to calculate as I have built out below. Why my values aren't being added to (k,8)?

Code:
Sub CalcSpecialFee()
Dim k As Integer
Dim cell As Range
k = 4
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Sheets("Summary").Select

[Code] .........

## Nested If Function

Dec 1, 2005

I am trying to create a nested IF function (has 5 IF statements), however,
every time I put the brackets at the end of the function, it puts a little .
next to the false answer, removes the brackets and comes up with an error
message?

This is only happening on one particular PC, when I create the same formula
on other pC's, it works fine so I know my formula is correct.

is there a setting on the PC that must be wrong?

## Nested, IF, AND, And OR Function

Feb 22, 2009

I have an assignment in which I have to use nested, IF, AND and OR functions. Does anyone know the syntax for this kind of function? Basically I have to determine leave time based on years of service and whether the employee is full time or part time. Part-time with less than 1.5 years of service = 0 days of leave Part-time over 1.5 and full-time under 1year = 3 days of leave and full time over 1 year = 5 days of leave. I know how to do a nested function, but I have not worked with both an AND and OR together.

## Timesheet Nested Function

May 31, 2006

I need to keep track of my salesmen's time. However, the company will not pay for the first 45 minutes so I need a formula that says, if the time entered in under "worked" is less than 45 minutes, no time will be deducted. If the time entered is equal to or greater than 45 minutes, 45 minutes will be deducted. These are the columns needed and the Daily Hours would be the total of all the previous columns.

## Nested IF (index And Match): Calculate A Charge In Cell K15 Based On Values In B9 And C10 Referencing The Table I8:R9

Jan 21, 2010

I'm trying to hone a quoting tool to generate an amount based on a given range and minimum charges for specified subsects of the range. If you reference the attachment I'm trying to calculate a charge in cell K15 based on values in B9 and C10 referencing the table I8:R9. What I cant figure out is how to create a minimum charge of 50 for J8:P9 (points A-G) and a charge of 95 for Q8:R9 (points H-I).

## Trying To Insert Nested Concatenate Function In VBA

Nov 7, 2012

I am trying to concatenate the text of a few cells in a specific worksheet. I'm not wanting to use the STRING & STRING type code because I already had a Concatenate formula nested with an index formula and needed to have this formula copied to a certain RANGE, Where the RANGE was specified by a Variable. T

he Code below does what I need if the CONCATENATE/INDEX formula is in the cell that im copying already. (BELOW) The Formula in the cell, for example, on row 19 of worksheet "COMMISSION", that needs to be copied and incremented down the VARIABLE RANGE is

=CONCATENATE(INDEX(OUTPUTS!J:J,(ROW(OUTPUTS!J2)-1)*2+1)," ",INDEX(OUTPUTS!K:K,(ROW(OUTPUTS!K2)-1)*2+1)).

VB:
Dim iInput_Rows As Integer
iInput_Rows = Worksheets("Workspace").Range("D3").Value
Dim iOutput_Rows As Integer
iOutput_Rows = Worksheets("Workspace").Range("D1").Value
Dim iAnalog_Rows As Integer

[Code] ....

My problem is when I use the following code to insert that concatenate/index formula, through vba, then I get errors because it evidently doesnt like the " " for the space i needed between texts. (The Formula is concatenating text in those cells but every other Row) Can I do this in VBA?

VB:
Worksheets("COMMISSION").Range("B19 + iOutputs_Rows").Formula = "=CONCATENATE(INDEX(OUTPUTS!J:J,(ROW(OUTPUTS!J2)-1)*2+1)," ",INDEX(OUTPUTS!K:K,(ROW(OUTPUTS!K2)-1)*2+1))"

## Match Function Nested In An If Statement

Dec 9, 2009

I have multiple sheets within one Excel file. Each sheet is structured the same way. Column B lists Client's last names, which differ from sheet to sheet, though some clients may be repeated in several tabs. I have a column K which displays either the number 1 or 0. This is consistent between sheets.

I have created a formula that will look at the last name in a specific cell in column B of sheet 2 (FY 07) and search sheet 1 (FY 06) column B for the same last name.

=IF(MATCH(\$B5,'FY 06'!\$B\$5:\$B\$24,0),1,0)

If the same last name exists and if column K of sheet 2 and sheet 1 display a "1", I want it to place a 0 in the formula cell.

So, if there is a client that is in both sheets and has a "1" in both columns K of each sheet, I want the formula to let me know.

## How To Convert IF Nested Function In Macro

## PRODUCT Function With Nested IF Formulas

Dec 8, 2009

I receive montly investment performance projections going out monthly for 10 years. I need to show the return annually for each year. I created a SUMIFS formula to sum the percentages between two date ranges (beginning of the year and the end of the year for each year). However, my SUMIFS formula does not take into considersation compounding. How can I modify the SUMIFS formula I created to take into consideration compounding?

I know how to convert monthly percentages to an annual percentage,using the PRODUCT formula =PRODUCT(1+T15,1+U15,1+V15,1+W15,1+X15,1+Y15,1+Z15,1+AA15,1+AB15,1+AC15,1+AD15)-1, whereas T15:AD15 is the monthly percentage gain. Is there a simplier/alternative way that I can incorporate into the SUMIFS formula?

If it is too complicated to utilize a SUMIFS formula, I would like to be able to select a range of cells and have Excel calculate the result vs typing "1+[select the cell]," for each month. It takes me forever and open to input errors. It would be much easier to be able to select a range of cells when creating the formula.

## Nested IF Function For Months Exceeds 7 Levels

Mar 21, 2008

I had more than 7 nested if statements so I attempted to formulate the named ranged formula. My 2 ranges are as follows: LDD1=IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(F2),C5-F5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(G2),C5-G5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(H2),C5-H5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(I2),C5-I5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(J2),C5-J5,IF(MONTH(P1)-MONTH(K2),C5-K5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(L2),C5-L5))))))) LDD2=IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(L2),C5-L5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(M2),C5-M5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(N2),C5-N5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(O2),C5-O5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(P2),C5-P5,IF(MONTH(P1)-MONTH(Q2),C5-Q5))))))

Basically what it's doing is comparing the current month with the month in the column heading and calculating appropriately. However, when i input the if statement (=if(LDD1,LDD1,LDD2), i get an error saying that it's an inconsistent formula and the result that it gives is wrong, too. Problem cell is e5

## Nested IF Function - Condition Is Based On Two Values Within A Cell

Mar 10, 2014

I am working on creating a simple Excel Database of an Engineering Tool Room Inventory for work. However I can not seem to get one particular 'NESTED IF Function' to do what I want it to do. (In advance warning, I may be going down the wrong route and might have used the wrong Formula in Excel but from my understanding the 'IF' function seemed the most plausible.

Issue: All I would like to do is for a NESTED IF Function to be able to say this:

1. When a user inputs data into one column, for example 'Column A', with the following data: 4" Square
2. Then the neighbouring column, for example 'Column B', would have a NESTED IF Function.
3. Which would output a logical response, "A, B, C, D, E, F etc...", depending on what is written in Column A.
If 'Column A' - 4" Square, Then 'Column B' - A
If 'Column A' - 5" Square, Then 'Column B' - B
& So on...
But the NESTED IF Function should only put a logical response if there is certain values within the cell, for example:
User types a value into 'Column A' which contain - 4 & S, Then 'Column B' - A
User types a value into 'Column B' which contain - 5 & S, Then 'Column B' - B
& So on...

Currently to do the above function, I have utilised the following Excel NESTED IF Function:

[Code] .....

& The following happens:
1. User inputs data into 'Column A'
2. The NESTED IF Function then provides an automatic response.
3. However it relies on the data being inputted without the ' " (Quotation Symbol)'
4. & With me defining the exact phrase that should be typed into the cell, for example, "4" Square"

Other: I have attached an example worksheet of the NESTED IF Function in practice, with two tables. One showing what is happening with the code above and one table showing what I would like to happen but with no function.

## Nested IF(AND Formula Error Message) "You've Entered Too Many Arguments For This Function"

Jan 27, 2010

I am entering the following Nested IF(AND statement into a cell and getting a message stating "You've entered too many arguments for this function." Any idea on what formula I can use to get the needed information into this cell based on the fact that there are different inputs that can be entered into the related cell that will trigger the needed respons in the working cell?

## Nested Function To Return "Product A - 3"

Jan 29, 2009

I have two columns of data. for example:

Column A
1
3
4
0
2
0
0
3

Column B
Product A
Product A
Product B
Product B
Product A
Product A
Product B
Product B

What I need the function to return is:
Product A - 3
Product B - 2

This is what I thought the function should look like but it is not working:

=IF(A6:A50>0,COUNTIF(A6:A50,"Product A"),0)

If Product A or B did not have any values >0, it would return a zero.

## Calculate RAND Function Only Once

Nov 10, 2013

I have a workbook that calculates a RAND function based on input in another cell. Specifically, the formula in E2 selects a random text string from another range depending on data entered in D2. I want to be able to fill this formula down for use multiple times.

The formula works fine on its own, but the problem comes when I, say, move on to D3 to input more data. E3 does its random calculation as it should, but E2 also recalculates; I want E2 to remain static once it calculates the first time.

I'm attaching the workbook in question. The calculation I'm referring to is in the 3rd worksheet.
