If you have salary in column A and Kids in column B, use this formula in column C:

=IF(AND(A2<800,B2>=3),300,IF(AND(A2<800,B2>0),150,IF(AND(A2<1000,B2>=3),200,IF(AND(A2<1000,B2>0),100,IF(AND(A2<1200,B2>=3),120,IF(AND(A2>=1200,B2>=3),60,IF(AND(A2>=1200,B2>0),50,0)))))))

Hi,

Or you could use

=MAX(IF(AND(A1<800,B1>=3),300),IF(A1<800,150),IF(AND(A1<1000,B1>=2),200),IF(A1<1000,100),IF(AND(A1<1200,B1>=3),120),IF(AND(A1>1200,B1>=3),60),50)

Open in new window

If you were to reformat your table with Salary down the side, number of kids across the top and bonus in the grid, you could use an INDEX or MATCH lookup to find your required value.

By having a grid as suggested above I was able to get the attached results.

Question though, what happens for those with no kids? I have assumed zero bonus.

Thanks

Flyster your solution worked but not entirely.
For the condition where :
salary kid
850            0
900            2
900            0

it returned 0. where in fact, it should've returned 100,200,100 respectively.
