Options

I want to set up a formula in the Bonus column. Currently there is a drop down selection for "Global Level". The individual can select 1 option out of 7. GL4, GL5, GL6, GL7... Once its selected, I want a formula in the bonus column that is...."If Global Level is GL4, then 2.5%, if GL 5 then 5%, if GL 6, then 7.5%, etc. etc. etc.....How do I set up this "nesting" type formula. My current one is not working.

Try this:

```=IF([Global Level]@row = "GL4", 0.025, IF([Global Level]@row = "GL5", 0.05, IF([Global Level]@row = "GL6", 0.075, IF([Global Level]@row = "GL7", 0.1, IF([Global Level]@row = "GL8", 0.125, IF([Global Level]@row = "GL9", 0.15, IF([Global Level]@row = "GL10", 0.175, "")))))))
```
