Hi all,

I am building a "simple" spreadsheet to use when showing off a compensation plan. I want to be able to quickly adjust the attainment and quota numbers and see the results. Attached is a screen shot of the comp plan and also a screen shot of the sheet and formula I am stuck on.

I am a real novice on formulas so I am not sure what I did wrong. I am assuming I can nest IF and AND formulas? Maybe my parentheses are messed up?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

This is the formula as it is in the sheet right now. Excel says it is incorrect and won't let me save it:

=if(C11<(C5*.85),0,(if(C11>=(C5*.85)and(C11<(C5*.9),C5*.005),if(C11>=(C5*.9)and(C11>(C5*.95),C11*.006),If(C11>=(C5*.95)and(C11<C5),C11*.007,if(C11>=C5)and(C11<(C5*1.05),(C11*.01),If(C11>=(C5*1.05)and(C5<(C5*1.1),(C11*.015),(C11*.02))
