I am trying to get finance fees to calculate on our daily balance sheet.

Jessica,

I put a version of your formula in F4 and drag filled it down.  I had values for each of your conditions.  It appeared to compute OK for me.   Here is the formula:

=IF(C:C="Credda",B:B-40,IF(C:C="Crest",(B:B-40)*1.01,IF(C:C="Synchrony",B:B*5.75%,IF(C:C="West Creek",B:B*0,IF(C:C ="Credit Card",B:B*1.25%,IF(C:C="Simple",B:B*0, IF(C:C="Okinus",B:B*0,IF(C:C="Progressive",B:B*0,IF(C:C="Cash",B:B*0,IF(C:C="Check",B:B*0))))))))))

You had a parenthesis inbalance and you had smart quotes which Excel can not work with.  

So I don't see a problem with your formula in Excel 2007 or later.  In earlier versions you might have too many conditions (but you didn't say what version of excel).

I have attached an image of my results.
