Hello,

When it comes to designing your worksheet ...

You should make your life easier ...and have nothing but Apples and Oranges in your Items Column ...

and insert a Type Column ... with say P for Pallet and nothing for Unit ...

Try:

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP("*pallet*",A2:B2,2,0)*C2,B2/C2)

This is a good idea to try to make it simpler when it comes to our own spreadsheet! however, it is a task that happen repetitively every week, so I want to try to have it formulated for saving time.

thank you.
