How to get pricing with multi tiered pricing from workbook

I have a worksheet that has the current prices for each item. This worksheet has various prices based on the size of your order for that product.
Here are the columns:
Min Order (the minimum that you can order of that item)
Base Price (price you pay if you order the min up to the next level)
Discount1 (QTY (the number of items to get the first price break)
Discount1 (Price Price for the second tier of pricing)
Discount2 (QTY (the number of items to get the second price break)
Discount2 (Price Price for the third tier of pricing)
Discount3 (QTY (the number of items to get the third price break)
Discount3 (Price Price for the forth tier of pricing)

Sample of data:

What I would like to do is to have a module that would return the price for the number of items ordered for a line item on an orderform

I want to order 14 Wig1, it would return 9.60
If I place an order for 2 wig5, up comes a messagebox that lets me know the minimum
Then if I correct that, and order 6 wig5 if would return 4.85
And if I order 1000 wig4, it would return 1.75

How would I code this? I can use VLOOKUP easy enough to get the BASE price, but not sure how to get to and test for the other columns.

=IF(C10<VLOOKUP(B10,tbl,3,FALSE),"Minimum required "&VLOOKUP(B10,tbl,3,FALSE),IF(AND(C10>=VLOOKUP(B10,tbl,3,FALSE),C10<VLOOKUP(B10,tbl,5,FALSE)),VLOOKUP(B10,tbl,4,FALSE),IF(AND(C10>=VLOOKUP(B10,tbl,5,FALSE),C10<VLOOKUP(B10,tbl,7,FALSE)),VLOOKUP(B10,tbl,6,FALSE),IF(AND(C10>=VLOOKUP(B10,tbl,7,FALSE),C10<VLOOKUP(B10,tbl,9,FALSE)),VLOOKUP(B10,tbl,8,FALSE),VLOOKUP(B10,tbl,10,FALSE)))))

Using the 10 columns you described, this will return the correct value based upon the quantity ordered.

I used nested IF's to test if the quantity ordered was between MinOrder and Disc1, then Disc1 and Disc2, etc.

There is probably a more elegant approach to this using an array formula or something, but that would be above my pay grade.  :-P

Good luck

PS.  I used a named range "tbl" to represent your data table A1:J6

I was looking for a function, which you guys guided me on how to write it!
It is here:
Public Function GetPrice(myItem As String, myQTY As Long) As Double
Dim myRange As Range

Set myRange = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A:k")
If myQTY >= Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(myItem, myRange, 9, False) Then
GetPrice = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(myItem, myRange, 10, False)
ElseIf myQTY >= Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(myItem, myRange, 7, False) Then
GetPrice = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(myItem, myRange, 8, False)
ElseIf myQTY >= Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(myItem, myRange, 5, False) Then
GetPrice = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(myItem, myRange, 6, False)
ElseIf myQTY >= Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(myItem, myRange, 3, False) Then
GetPrice = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(myItem, myRange, 4, False)
MsgBox "Minimum order is " & Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(myItem, myRange, 3, False)
End If

End Function

Open in new window

Now I just need to add some error checking (like if part is not found, or an item does not have a discounted price etc....)
