Excel - Return Value based on multiple criteria

New Contributor

I am trying to work out how to do a lookup based on required quantity.
I have a forecast which shows me how many items i need to buy per item, some of the items have price breaks from the vendors so if i buy more than 5 or 10 the price will change.

So i need to first look up the Part No. then return the unit cost, but again i need it to skip the unit cost until it falls within a price break quantity. I feel like this is simple but im wrecking my head for a solution.




Thanks in advance for any solution offered

You can copy J4 to J6.

You can try this formula along with a helper column. In the example the helper column is "Qty to" column E. Enter the formula with ctrl+shift+enter if you don't work with Office 365 or Excel 2021.


Thank you@Quadruple_Pawn 


This worked well, i really need to study up on index/match. i do everything else but never mastered this.
