Hello, I have a table as above.
I want to enter a formula into the "Bonus Payable" column so that I don't have to enter the number manually.
The amounts under Bonus Payable is calculated as follows.
If the profit is positive, then the bonus payable will simply be 10% of the profit.
If it's a loss, then there will be no bonus payable.
If next month has a profit, bonus will only be paid if 10% of it exceeds 10% of the loss incurred from previous month.
So 41,078.60 is calculated as (176,920.87 + 58,724.53 - 194,566.80) = 41,078.60.
Thanks v

For bonus payable for current month it is simply
Code:
=IF([HKD]>=0; [HKD]*0.1;0)
.

It's not really clear from your table which month is current, previous or next, but you can solve it with an additional IF statement

The above formula would only work until there's a loss for the month.
As you can see, in row number 6, even though there's a profit, no bonus was distributed because 10% of it (58,724.53) did not exceed the loss from the previous month (-194,566.80).

See possible solution below:

The formula is as follows:
Code:
=IF(A7>0,IF(A7+A6>=0,A7*0.1,0),0)
