    Excel - volume discounts

    Hi All

    Any idea what formula I would use if wanting to calculate a percentage volume discount...

    E.g if cell A1 shows total of items -

    100 - 500 items 5% discount
    501 - 700 7.5% discount
    701 - 900 10% discount


    Many thanks

    Catherine

    You need to have the "TRUE" value at the end of the formula to search for an approximate value in your lookup table.
