I'm creating a program for a school that tracks students summer reading and gives them bonus points for each book that they read. I need help in creating the Function to calculate points in the following manner:

The first three books are worth 10 points each. The next three are worth 15 points each. And all books over six are worth 20 points each.

Hi Gmoney,

Something like this should works:

Dim points As Long

..

If rs.RecordCount > 6 Then

Points = rs.RecordCount * 20

Else

For i = 1 to rs.RecordCount

Select case i
Case 1 To 3
Points = Points + 10
Case 4 To 6
Points = Points + 20    
End Select

Next i

End If
0

Public Function myPoints(Byval RCount As Long) As Long
Dim Points As Long
If RCount > 6 Then

Points = RCount * 20

Else

For i = 1 to RCount

Select case i
Case 1 To 3
Points = Points + 10
Case 4 To 6
Points = Points + 20    
End Select

Next i
myPoints = Points
End Function

Public Function PointsForBooks(numberRead as single) as single
dim tempPoints

If numberRead > 6 Then

   PointsForBooks = 75 + (numberRead - 6)*20

Else

   For i = 1 to numberRead
      Select case i
        Case 1 To 3
           tempPoints = tempPoints + 10
        Case 4 To 6
           tempPoints = tempPoints + 15
      End Select
   Next i

   PointsForBooks = tempPoints

EndIf

End Function


This should do it.

And yet another way...

Public Function BooksToPoints(ByVal intBooks As Integer) As Integer
    If intBooks > 6 Then
        BooksToPoints = 75 + ((intBooks - 6) * 20)
    ElseIf intBooks > 3 Then
        BooksToPoints = 30 + ((intBooks - 3) * 15)
    ElseIf intBooks > 0 Then
        BooksToPoints = intBooks * 10
    End If
End Function
