Hi all! I’m looking for a solution in a switch formula, with nested if functions.

I want to calculate a percentage & addition based fee that changes based on the category input. Also with possible caveats on how that fee is calculated based on the price of the item. I’m hoping this is possible.

Example:

If Category=A, multiply by 12%

If Category=B, multiply by 9%, then add .50

If Category=C, AND the price is <$15, ADD $2, OR if Category=C, AND the price is >$14.99, multiply by 20%

Right now I have a separate table linked to include all this info, but I would love to set up a formula to calculate all of this within the main table. Thanks for the help!

Assuming I understood your question, the simplest possible formula is:

```
SWITCH(
{Category},
"A", {Price} * .12,
"B", ({Price} * .09) + .5,
"C", IF({Price} < 15, {Price} + 2, {Price} * .2)
)
```

Thank you so much for the response! That absolutely is the easiest formula and works!

Correct. The basic format of the `IF()`

function is:

```
IF(condition, output_if_true, optional_output_if_false)
```

If `{Price} < 15`

isn’t true, then `{Price}`

*must* be >= 15, so the third argument can be executed without the need for checking that condition again.
