EXCEL HELP PLEASE

By champ5515 ·
i am trying to make a spreadsheet for my work (alltel) and what i need is to find/make a funtion to make someones job much easier.... when we pull spreadsheets it give us product description and doesnt display what the commission is for the product...figuring commission they manually have to enter the dolloar amount and move down till they are done for the whole month of sold products..many of these are very repeatative and time consuming. is there anyway i can do an "if" like function that when it says a certain product name...the amount of commision will be displayed in the next cell thus letting them auto sum the total without any chance for manual error?

I would think...

that you could either create a macro to equate an absolute relationship between a certain product and a certain monetary value, or write a VB script to accomplish the same thing. While I do not know how to do either, I have seen the end result of both, thus I assume it is possible.

step by step

no this isn't a step by step explanation, that's too exhausting. buy a book on excel. what i recommend is the microsoft series called step-by-step excel 2003 (that's yours, right?). it comes with a cd filled w/practice files. it's $25. read the chapter about creating formulas. yes, excel can do what you want.

i can write the functions fine...but it returns TEXT values and not number value..which does not let me use the auto sum funtion to add them up, without converting them in a separte book...

Using Vlookup

by rajan.sowri In reply to well

Create a lookup table with the items and applicable discount at the bottom. Use Vlook function to bring in the values (in your case, discount applicable). =vlookup(b2,$A$52:$C$74,2,false).

You will never go wrong with the values.
