I have the following problem I'd like to compute in a cell.

Payments start at month X (Mar). They go up increments of 10, every 2 months (payment period) for a number of periods 5, until they stop going up and remain at the same level. I want to create cells with the values under "payments" below, i.e. 0, 0, 100, 100, 110, 110, ... 140, 140, 140, 140 etc.

Payment period: Every 2 months.
Number of periods: 5
Start date: Mar
Payment increment amount: 10
Initial payment: 100

Period:                       1                 2              3               4              5                 6
Month:     Jan  Feb  Mar  Apr  May  Jun   Jul   Aug  Sep  Oct   Nov  Dec  Jan  Feb
Payment:  0      0     100  100  110  110  120 120   130  130  140  140   140  140

Not sure why you want to use macros, this can be done with formulas.

See attached workbook.

Thanks very much. I knew it could be done with a formula but frankly was a little stumped. I thought I had a good grasp of excel but your formulas are really elegant and they will be useful for the future. Thanks so much your prompt reply, I now have a very very effective financial model!
