We want to calculate the commission for all the sales reps in Column C:
We need to use an =IF commission to calculate the commission.
In cell C4 create an =IF function to calculate the commission. Use the following to help you:
- If the sales in column B >= 30000, commission rate is 20%
- Sales anything less, commission rate is 1%
Don't forget to set up range names for the input cells in column F
Copy the commission rate formulae down column C to calculate all the other reps' commissions.
Change your commission rate input cells in column F to check that your =IF function is working correctly:
When you change the input cells in column F the commission will change.
