### Title

calculation based on other entries

### Post

New to FM 10 Win XP. Trying to figure out how to auto calculate a field where there are 3 variables.

Here is what I am trying to do:

field a is number of pages

field b is number of master pages

field c is type of page (even, double or 4x

field a is user entered number

field b is what I am trying to calculate

field c is a drop down menu with the three choices (even, double or 4x)

if a = 4 pages and c= even pages then i want b to be the same result as a

if a = 4 pages and c= double pages then i want b to be 2 times the number in a

if a= 4 pages and c= 4x pages then I want b to be 4 times the number in a

Can't seem to get this figured out. Any help greatly appreciated. Sorry if I have left anything out or if not explained well. I am brand new to FMP.

Thanks, Scott

It doesn't make sense to me, but I am not a printer. Anyway, try:

Case (

Type = "Broadsheet" ; Pages ;

Type = "Tabloid" ; Pages * 2 ;

Type = "Book" ; Pages * 4

)
