Overriding a cell with a formula

Is it possible to override a cell with a formula? For the most part, one of my columns should be a formula, but other times I want to hard-code it. This has kept me from using AirTable to track my bookings/commissions because it’s not as flexible as Excel in this way. Would love to be able to use the system for what I need. Thanks!

You can have your main field for whatever it is you want to display be a formula that will use your manually entered override value from another field, if it exists, or otherwise display the result of the formula.

Here’s an example for a {Commission} field:

   {Override Commission Amount},
   {Override Commission Amount},
   {Total} * 0.15
