# Proper IF function - I can't figure this one out

I am trying to figure out a revenue projection and I can't figure this one out. I collect a % of my sales person's commission but IF they reach \$12,000 in commission paid I stop collecting the %

I know I need the product of the commission x % but how do I say to use the actual total if it is under \$12000 but to stop at \$12,000 if the total exceeds \$12,000?

Thanks for the help, I'm stumped

# Re: Proper IF function - I can't figure this one out

Does an If statement work here, such that if your commission > \$12,000, take the original value?

Here's a formula I put together in C2: =IF(A2*B2 > 12000, A2, A2+(A2*B2)) where I have the sale in A2 and a commission percentage in B2.

If the total commission is > 12,000, then C2 is just the original sale without commission. If the total commission is < 12,000, then I add the original sale + commission amount (A2 * B2).

Other words you'd like to pay MIN(12000, Sales*Percent), correct?

Actually, I want the maximum company split (take) to be 12,000 from each sales person

I tried that but it did not work. Here's a screenshot. In the highlighted cell I am trying to take the \$29700 x the company split (that's easy enough) but have it max out at \$12,000. So, in the pic below, The commission is F26 and the company split is C37
