Looking for a formula that would take the net cost (Column H), calculate a certain fees % (Column V), based on a specific word (column E). So if Column E says "ad serving", take net cost in column H and multiply by xx%, if not return to $0.

@850992 Perhaps something like this?

=IF(E1="ad serving",H1*V1,0)

Take a look at the inserted file for a suggested solution.
I'm not sure about the translation and since you have not submitted any files (without sensitive data) and no information about the Excel version and operating system, I can only guess.

I just hope I guessed right :).

 

I would be happy to know if I could help.
