Hey,

Im building a spreadsheet of my ebay transactions. If you recieve payment from outside the UK the paypal charge is different from that inside the UK (boarder fees click here=)

I have a coulmn called "Payment from inside UK?" In this column i put "yes" or "no". The next column is the paypal fees. I want to do an if formula, i think, to see if that column says "yes" then do this formula for charges, if "no" then this. Here is my failed attempt.

=IF((K37=Yes,"=SUM(J37*3.4%+0.2)","=SUM(J37*3.9%+0.2)")

(Column K is my Payment from inside UK?
Column J is the price sold)

Any ideas?
Thanks for the help.

=IF(K37="Yes", J37*3.4%+0.2, J37*3.9%+0.2)

Out of interest do you work with computers for a job or just have a vast amount of knowledge at your fingertips?
I'm always impressed by the speed and frequency you resolve queries on here!

I work with computers in my job but I'm not an IT person. I use Excel quite a bit though :o)

You are amazing!

Twice now this has happened, ive asked for a formula and you've replied before i even posted the question!

Thanks again

My pleasure.

By the way, your =SUM() statements were redundant.

SUM is used in formulas like

=SUM(C4:E4)

=SUM(C13,D14,E13)

=SUM(C17:C19,E17:E19)

You don't need SUM to calculate J37*3.4%+0.2
