I need to create a nested IF(AND statement for my commission sheets.

Logical Argument 1: If the Set By field has a value in it AND
Logical Argument 2: If the Month field is January, February, March or April

The result would be:

1. Calculate the formula Profit/2 multiplied by .125, otherwise blank.

I also need in the same column:

Logical Argument 1: If the Set By field has a value in it AND
Logical Argument 2: If the Month field is May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December

The result would be:

1. Calculate the formula Profit multiplied by .0625 ., otherwise blank.

This assumes, based on the way you worded your request, that the `Month` field produces a string with the month name. If this is not the case (ie, it returns a number or an actual `date` data-type, the `OR()` statements may need to edited to reflect the appropriate data type):

``````IF(
AND(
{Set By},
OR(
Month = "January",
Month = "February",
Month = "March",
Month = "April"
)
),
(Profit / 2) * 0.125,
IF(
AND(
{Set By},
OR(
Month = "May",
Month = "June",
Month = "July",
Month = "August",
Month = "September",
Month = "October",
Month = "November",
Month = "December"
)
),
Profit * 0.0625
)
)
``````

Not sure how my eye caught this so quickly, but the calculation in Jeremy’s solution has the operators reversed:

Based on your description, I believe it should be:

``(Profit / 2) * 0.125,``

Thanks, @Justin_Barrett. Fixed it.

Of course,

`(Profit / 2) * 0.125`

is the same as

`Profit * 0.0625`

which removes the need for the formula :slightly_smiling_face:

(@Kristen_Gerzin - maybe one of the blocks of months needs a different commission calculation?)

You make a completely valid point. I will need to revisit this with my sales team, as they were originally paying the 12.5% out of their commission, whereas now it should be 0.625% out of their commission.

Not quite. 0.125 is the same as 12.5%. 0.0625 is 6.25%, not 0.625%
