Problem with Excel's Solver

BBlu asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-14

I am trying to use solver to figure out what we need commissions to be in order to get to a specific profit margin.  I did the same EXACT task last month with no problems.  But now Solver can't find a solution for some reason.  Can someone tell me if they see anything wrong with the layout or criteria set for the attached solver problem? solverProb.xlsx
