Try this

=IF(ISERROR(IF(FIND("PL",P5,1),O5*0.5,IF(FIND("SN",P5,1),IF(AND(AM5>10,I5<1.25),O5*15,O5*10),0))),0,IF(FIND("PL",P5,1),O5*0.5,IF(FIND("SN",P5,1),IF(AND(AM5>10,I5<1.25),O5*15,O5*10),0)))

The above formula is for Excel 2003. For 2007/2010 try this

=IFERROR(IF(FIND("PL",P5,1),O5*0.5,IF(FIND("SN",P5,1),IF(AND(AM5>10,I5<1.25),O5*15,O5*10),0)),0)

Another alternative

=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("PL",P5,1)),O5*0.5,IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("SN",P5,1)),IF(AND(AM5>10,I5<1.25),O5*15,O5*10),0))
