Hi, I've got a calculation field that is running the following calculation:

If ( field one = "x" ; field two)

This achieves the desired results. But, I also want to check field one for "y" and return a different result.

I assumed I could add another "If" statement or an "else if" or "else" but can't seem to get this to work. Is there another way to get this done?

Thanks!!

Also, keep in mind that the Case () Statement evaluates each test expression in the order it is in and exits the case statement after it hits the first test expression that evaluates as true. So order of evaluation is important.

I perfer the Case over the If Statement because for me it is easier to read and write:

BTW, the Online Help, under the If Statement, has this Note: If you have more than two possible results, consider using the Case function.
