In order to show the nesting and combining of functions in Excel as transparently as possible, we have created an example table. Customers should receive a predefined discount under various conditions. To do this, we nested an IF function and an OR function, and then again with an IF function and an AND function.
This allows different discounts to be displayed depending on the turnover made and an additional combination with the order quantity.
In the first example, we’ll look at combining an IF function with an AND function. The following conditions must be met for the customer to receive a discount:
The customer should receive a discount of 5% on the retail price if the order quantity is greater than 5 pieces. And this regardless of the turnover.
The customer should receive a discount of 10% on the retail price if the order quantity is greater than 5 pieces and the turnover is over €1,000.
If none of the conditions are met, the cell should say No discount.
