# Excel if with nested functions possible?

Questions:

I have a spreadsheet I’m trying to calculate fees and such with but instead of having 10 columns for calculating I want to condense it.

Can I input something like this in excel and get it to work? It’s giving me errors right now.

``````=IF((u3*0.12)<1, "1", (=sumproduct(u3*0.12)+u3))
``````
• The value in `u3` is a sum of 4 other rows

• `U3` is a sum of costs.

• I need `12%` of the costs of `u3` and if it’s less than 1, I need the
`u3` `sum + 1`. If the value `u3*0.12` is `>1` I want the value
`u3+(u3*0.12)` printed.

Sorry if I’m being redundant, I just want this thing to work

Your Formula has some errors in it. But what you are wanting to do is completely possible.

The quick answer is yes you can nest formulas inside of formulas. I do not know how many levels you can go, but I have written some fairly complex ones myself, so they can go deep.

For what you have there change it to:

``````=If((U3*.12)<1,U3+1,SUM((U3*.12)+U3))
``````

This says If 12% of U3 is less than one then this cells value is U3+1. However if 12% of U3 is greater than 1 then this cells value is 12% of U3 + U3

``````=if(u3<8.333, sum(1, u3), u3*1.12))
