      Evaluate

      Post

           I can't see why this is not evaluating correctly: It evaluates to... $weightmultiplier2 = 2637 or the 1st value...

           $weight2 = 2000

           $fivehunderdlbs = 2637

           $onethousand = 2191

           $twothousand = 1687

            

           Set Variable [ $Weightmultiplier2; Value:

           Let ( ~w = $weight2 ;

           Case ( ~w < "501"; $fivehundredlbs ; ~w < "1001" ; $onethousandlbs ; ~w < "2001" ; $twothousandlbs ; ~w < "5001" ; $fivethousandlbs ; ~w < "10001" ; $tenthousandlbs )) ]

               You set your variables to number and you are checking Text with the ""  in your case statement.  

               $ = local varible and $$ = Global variable.  You didn't state where you were setting these variables, so the wrong amount could be passed to your let  / case statement.  

               If all variables are local then use the following.

                

               Let(~W= $weight2;
               Case(~W < 501 ; $fivehundredlbs;
                       ~W<1001; $onethousandlbs;
                       ~W<2001; $twothousandlbs;
                       ~W<5001; $fivethousandlbs;
                       ~w<10001;$tenthousandlbs)
               )

                 As well as S Chamblee's comment:

                 I don't know if you copied and pasted the calculations, but the variable names don't match.  For example: $fivehunderdlbs and $fivehundredlbs; and you don't say where you set the variables $fivethousandlbs and $tenthousandlbs.

                 (Also, note that S Chamblee's layout of the Case statement makes it much easier to read and de-bug.)

                   It's also possible to forgo the calculation and use a relationship with this value to look up values from a table. This can often make managing future changes to the values much easier--a data entry task instead of a database design change task.
