We want to calculate the commission for all the sales reps:

Excel file without any formulae

We need to use an =IF function to calculate the commission.

In cell C4 create an =IF function to calculate the commission.  Use the following information to help you:

  • If the sales in column B is greater than or equal to £30,000, commission rate is 20%
  • Anything less than £30,000, the commission rate is 1%

Don't forget to set up some input cells and range names for figures like the commission rates and the threshold figure to use in your =IF formula.

Copy the commission rate formula down column C to calculate all the other reps' commissions.

Change your commission rate input cells to check that your =IF function is working as shown below:

When you change the input cells on the right, all the commissions should change.
