Nested IF functions in excel

I am writing a formula that can calculate a persons payable tax based on different tax brackets. I have so far:=IF(C6>6000,0.15%*(C6-6000),0) where C6 is the persons gross income and 6000-30000 is the first tax bracket the first part seems to work but when i add the second part:=IF(C6>6000,0.15%*(C6-6000),0),(IF(C6>30000,0.3%*(C6-30000))) ireceive an error message where am i going wrong?

Re: Nested IF functions in excel



Your first IF condition is “=IF(C6>6000,0.15%*(C6-6000),0)”


C6>6000 is your logical condition

0.15%*(C6-6000) would be the value if your logical condition is TRUE, and

0 would be the value if your logical condition is FALSE.


Your 2nd IF condition is “(IF(C6>30000,0.3%*(C6-30000)))”


C6>30000 is your logical condition

0.3%*(C6-30000) would be the value if your logical condition is TRUE, and

? would be the value if your logical condition is FALSE.


You are missing the value if it is FALSE.


Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information.


Good luck and kind regards.

Excel question

You can import data from one sheet to another. If you want to bring a total from Sheet 1 to Sheet 2, then in Sheet 2 enter [=sheetname!cell] (without the brackets of course. You will now have the data from Sheet 1 in a cell in Sheet 2 and you can do anything you want with it. One note: if the sheet name has a space in it (Sheet Name) you have to enclose the name in single quotes; that tells it that the whole thing is the name. For example, Monthly Sales, A10 is the total for last month; to put it in this month for a running total, you would enter in Sheet 2 ['Monthly Sales'!A10] (without the brackets again). Now you can have a running total between the two sheets.

HELP with macro config

Hi Hss Holdings,

The easiest way to do this is to use a formula called vlookup. You need to have the raw data some where in the workbook, but it can be a separate sheet. Put all the raw data in a table, make sure the account number is on the furthest left column, then start entering the formulas

vlookup(value_to_find, table_to_check, column_index_number, range_lookup(true/false))

value_to_find = the value you want to find on the left most column of the table
table_to_check = the table you want to find the data from
column_index_number = the column number of the data field you want to return into this cell, 1 = the left most column.
range_lookup = false for an exact match, true for the nearest match

Say the table is on sheet2 between A1 and E300

B15 is whatever you type, so no formula needed here
B12 =VLOOKUP(C1,Sheet2!A1:E300,2,FALSE)
G12 = B12 =VLOOKUP(C1,Sheet2!A1:E300,3,FALSE)

Excel formula

Assuming that all of your data is in a single row number 4 and between columns N and PF


The MATCH function looks up the value of today() in the range N4 to PF4 and returns the number of columns offset from the beginning of the range. (The 0 here does an exact match)

The OFFSET function returns a value from a cell a specified number of columns from a reference cell, in this case N4, which is the first column that contains the search data. We need to add on to this value to skip the Interest column.
