Entering a formula into the Function Wizard in Calc shows  up two 
different answers in the 'Result' and 'Function Result' answer box.

If the editing cursor is placed in a certain section of the formula, 
only the 'Function Result' answer box holds the correct answer i.e. 
751.52004. Pressing 'OK' puts the 'Result' answer box value in the 
calculated cell, which unfortunately is the wrong answer i.e. 751.25.

I have looked at the help file to see if there was a difference between 
the Result answer boxes but found none.

The initial formula is:

In addition I have tried changing the formula without success to try and 
reduce the multiple nested IF functions:


The SUMIF function was also tried but my brain just gave up.

I cannot see how the VLOOKUP function will help either as I am not 
looking up values from cells, I am calculating a single value in H4 
based in a variable input in G4.

Have a peak at the uploaded spreadsheet on Nabble:

You will see that provided you enter a value for G4 below 600 the 
correct answer is shown i.e. for 600 in G4 H4=750. The moment G4 exceeds 
600, even by 1, there is a problem.

There must be an answer and or  my formula syntax is wrong unbeknown to me.

Help would be very much appreciated

The spreadsheet structure you are using is not so adequate for this 

I have a suggestion for your formula in H4. But, before I post it, 
you should know that there are better possibilities, and that my 
suggestion doesn't solve all your problems in that spreadsheet. 
Additionally, the formula I am suggesting might not be optimized, and 
it is certainly not the only solution.

Anyway, in your posted spreadsheet, Electricity.ods -> Data2 sheet -> 
Cell H4, I suggest the following formula as one possibility:


Hopefully, the email width format won't mess up my intention (a reply 
to this email probably will).

Best Regards,
