Help with If/Then formula

### Post

Hello,

I am new to using Filemaker. I am a baseball card collector and I have managed my baseball card collection in an Excel worksheet for a long time. As you can imagine, that worksheet has gotten unwieldy, so I upgraded to Filemaker Pro 12.

What I am trying to do is this:

1. Each card is assigned a value, such as MINT, VERY GOOD, EXCELLENT, etc.  This condition is chosen from a drop down menu in one of my fields.

2. Each card has a book value based on the card being in perfect condition. I am entering this manually for each card as a dollar amount.

3. I would like for another field to show the book value adjusted by condition of the card. For instance, if a card has a book value of \$10 and the card is in VERY GOOD condition, the value would be adjusted accordingly.

In my Excel database, I set up a If/Then function like this:

=IF(I32="VG",N32*0.5,IF(I32="EX",N32*0.75,IF(I32="EXMT",N32*1,IF(I32="MINT",N32*1.5,IF(I32="P",N32*0.1,IF(I32="G",N32*0.25,IF(I32="F",N32*0.15,C1*4)))))))

Is it possible to do something similar in Filemaker? I have tried a variety of different formulas, but have not been able to make it work.
