Many Excel formulas generate the same result regardless of its inputs. In this video, learn how to create conditional formulas using the IF function.
- [Instructor] Most of the formulas you create…in Excel will always perform the same calculation.…For example, you might need to multiply the sales total…by 5% to compute the transaction's sales tax.…There will be times, however,…when you only want to perform calculations…if the inputs meet one or more criteria.…In this movie, I will show you how…to use conditional functions to perform…specific calculations when those criteria are met.…This workbook contains two worksheets,…and in this movie, we will work…with the commissions worksheet.…
I have a set of sales data, broken down…by sales representatives.…We have their goal and their actual sales,…and we're going to calculate commission,…based on whether they reached their goal,…and where they will have one level, 5%…if they didn't reach their goal, and 7% if they did.…To create these calculations, I'll click in cell D2.…Actually, for me, that's already selected.…Then I'll type an equals sign,…and I'll type If, which is one…of the available conditional functions.…
