# Dynamic IF 'anytext' help

Hi everyone,

I’m struggling to nest an IF formula that would apply a sales commission % to any other agents that make a sale.

## Current Formula:

IF({Agent}=“Me”, {Agent}*.24,

IF({Agent}="(Help)", {Agent}*.20,

IF({Agent}=Blank(), 0,"")))

For the Help portion, I currently want it to show that if any Agent in future were to make a sale, then the commission % would be applied to them, regardless of who they are.

Hi @Cal_King, try

Agent != “Me”

i.e not equal to me

@JonathanBowen thank you for the reply.

It didn’t quite work for me.

Ideally, I’m looking for a way to calculate the 20% commission for whomever I name as an {AGENT} for future sales - but until then, leaving it blank.

• If “I’m”={Agent}, then 24% * {Grs.Sale}
• If “AnyoneElse”={AGENT}, 20%*{Grs.Sale}
• If BLANK, 0 commission

I know that an easier way would be to keep a running list of Agents and simply link the {AGENT} sheet to that field but the layout I current have auto-calculates after manually entering AR, AP, and AGENT.

Does this apply the proper logic?

``````IF(NOT({Agent}),
0,
{Grs.Sale} * SWITCH(
{Agent},
"Me", .24,
"Mgr", .3,
.2
)
``````

If there’s no agent listed, the value is zero. If there’s an agent, then multiply the `{Grs.Sale}` value by a percentage that depends on who the agent is. If it’s “Me”, it’s 24%. If it’s “Mgr”, it’s 30%. If it’s anyone else, it’s 20%
