    Complicated formula (Excel 2000)

    I'm looking for a formula that says:

    If 2004 sale are greater than 2003 sales, then increase 2004 sales by 6%. If 2004 sales are less than 2003 sales, take the average of the 2 sales and increase that number by 6%. Is anyone able to help me? I tried several different ways of doing this without success. Thanks!
    <pre> Cell # D31 E31
    2003 sales 2004 Sales Proj. Year End
    $10,264.00 $2,400.00 $3,668.21</pre>

    I don't see how 3,668.21 follows from your description, but try this formula:

    =IF(E31>D31,E31*1.06,(D31+E31)/2*1.06)

    Hi evert9,

    Try:
    =MAX(E31,(D31+E31)/2)*1.06

    Cheers

    I couldn't help to avoid this:
    =(E31+MAX(D31,E31))/2*1.06
