We want to create a formula to calculate the order discounts:

Excel File without an IF function

We want to calculate the order discounts in column D.

In cell D4, create an =IF function to calculate Discount Applied.  Use the following information to help you:

  • If the order quantity is greater than 2000, the discount is 10%
  • Anything less, the discount is 1%

Don't forget to create range names for the input cells below the spreadsheet, and then use these in your =IF function.

Copy the =IF formula down column D to calculate the other discounts applied.

Change the input cells for the % discounts to check that your =IF is working correctly as shown below:

Excel file with =IF function

When you change the discount %, the order discounts should change.
