Percent over 100

I need a calculation for percent over $100.  If $175 then the amount over $100 is $75, thus 75%.  Full explanation here http://screencast.com/t/E3Xm3fkU.

Set G2 to

     =(F2-100)/100

And format as a percent.

Set H2 to

    =C2+0.3*(D2+E2)

Set I2 to

    =0.6*F2

Set J2 to

    =MAX(H2,I2)

Change F2 to:

    =MIN(F2,100+0.3*(100-D2+E2))

F2 matches the description.  

Your new code on F2 gives a circular reference warning.

H and J aren't yet matching the description.

See attached. I placed the formula above in F2 as-is. No circular references.

Column J DOES match the description: "'If additional sales are over 90% of the first $100 sold,
then you make 60% commission on all 'combined' sales for that day, whichever is highest."

The total sales for the day are 175. 60% of 175 is 105.

Column H says "At a MINIMUM, you make 100% of the first $100 sold plus (+)
30% commission on all 'additional' sales for that day."

Since $75 is the amount over $100, then that column should represent $100 + $22.50 which is 30% of $75.

Column J says "'If additional sales are over 90% of the first $100 sold,
then you make 60% commission on all 'combined' sales for that day, whichever is highest."

Since additional sales are only 75% over 100% and not 90% or greater, then that value should be $0

>Column H says "At a MINIMUM, you make 100% of the first $100 sold plus (+)
30% commission on all 'additional' sales for that day." Since $75 is the amount over $100, then that column should represent $100 + $22.50 which is 30% of $75.

And this is exactly what is calculated and what is displayed.

>Since additional sales are only 75% over 100% and not 90% or greater, then that value should be $0

Then why, in your sample, do you show a value of 105 in column J? And why do you have column K which displays the maximum of H and J? With the maximum in column K you don't need to show zero in column J.

You never stated above that you wanted column J to be zero if the percentage over 100 is greater than 90%.

Also, even though you will be displaying zero in column J up to 190 in sales, you will be displaying a non-zero value in column J from 190 to about 230 in sales even though it is still less than the amount in column H.

That said, I made the changes per your last post in the attached file.

You might consider getting rid of columns H, I, and J and using a single formula to calculate the commission:

    =MAX(MIN(F2,100+0.3*(100-D2+E2)),0.6*F2)
