Hey guys,

I have made spreadsheets to be made for ordering stock into a retail store.

An example

ITEM.......PRICE...PACK QTY...ORDER QUANTITY...TOTAL
Paper.....$1.00........12.......................12.................$12.00
Pens......$1.00........12........................24................$24.00

My problem is that my items are priced individually but if I order individual quantities, the supplier may assume that that is how many packs I want, even though the total price works out to be the price for the individuals (this has happened already)

My question is, what formula can I use which will change the order quantity for an item that comes in a pack from the individual amount to the pack amount?

So if an item comes in a pack of 12, I have to write 12 in the order quantity so the price is accurate (because they are priced individually). I then want it to DISPLAY 1pk.

Likewise an item that comes in a pack of 12, if I order 24, I want the order quantity to display 2pk.

Bear in mind that the TOTAL column is PRICExORDER QUANTITY, so it will still have to work off the individual order quantity.

So it would be something like...

=IF(ORDER QUANTITY is a multiple of PACK QUANTITY; then display ORDER QUANTITY/PACK QUANTITY with "pk" next to it.

Can someone please translate this to a formula I can use?

Thanks so much in advance.

For these items, they can only be ordered in packs. So there would never be anything in-between.

Actually, to save me having to do separate formulas, the items that are not purchased in a pack do not have anything in the PACK QTY column so it would be good if the formula only worked for items which have a PACK QTY value.
