How to calculate amount based on different categories?

New Contributor



I have worksheet with the following:
Procedures; subcategorized to a,b,c and I want to calculate the amount for each one of them based on specific formula. e.g. if a, amount= 50/100 but if b, amount= 30/100.


Is it possible to do this?

Thank you so much

Really helpful, Appreciated

one more question please,
I want D2(cost)=D2 times C2. what formula i can use? I know these questions are basics but would really appreciate help


D2 cannot equal D2 times C2 - that would cause a circular reference and Excel would stop recalculating formulas.

Instead, insert a new column to the right of column D, and insert the formula =C2*D2 in E2.

I did, Thank you again for your extreme help
