IF Formula Based on Selected Quarter
Hi, I would like to write a formula that selects the appropriate sales tax rate with each quarter. I think I may be missing something basic when if comes to IF formulas...Does it matter if the sales tax column was created as a dropdown list? Is there a limit to the length of this formula if I were to add on with future tax rate changes?
=IF([Payments in Quarter]@row = "Q.1.19", "7.10%"), =IF([Payments in Quarter]@row = "Q.3.18", "6.85%"), =IF([Payments in Quarter]@row = "Q.2.19", "7.25%")
Thanks,
K

You don't need so many brackets around each IF formula or the extra = signs. Also do you want the result to display as text? Right now, it will display 7.10% as text, which will make it difficult if you are trying to use that in another formula. Just remove the quotes and format your column as a %.
Try:
=IF([Payments in Quarter]@row = "Q.1.19", .0710, IF([Payments in Quarter]@row = "Q.3.18", .0685, IF([Payments in Quarter]@row = "Q.2.19", .0725)

Figured out their is a conflict of interest with a manual dropdown and a formula in this row, so I'll need to think further on its function.
Thanks for helping me with the Sales Tax formula, works very well!
