Is there a question here?

Hello,

Here is my formula:

if {CUSTOMER} = "ABC" then

if {@datediff} < 5 then "Early" else

if {@datediff} = 0 then "On Time" else

if {@datediff} > 0 then "Late" else

if {SFC2.C2_NUM} = "DEF" then

if {@datediff} < 3 then "Early" else

if {@datediff} = 0 then "On Time" else

if {@datediff} > 0 then "Late"

I'm trying to make my formula to do diffrent calculations depending on the rules of the customer, as you can see customer ABC can be sent in 5 days early and DEF can be 3 days early.

Also all over customers will be 0 days early.

This formula i have does'nt work, it shows me when "ABC" are Late / Early or On Time but it doesn't show me the information for DEF and all the other customers.

I'll try explain diffrently here. Ok i have customers ABC / DEF / GHI and each customer has diffrent rules ABC can be delivered 5 days early and DEF can be sent 3 days early and GHI can be sent 0 days early, i have a field that tells me how many days we have delivered early, i want a formula that says if ABC is < 5 days then show "Early" then if = 0 then "On time" then if > 0 then "Late" and then if DEF < 3 days then show "Early" then if = 0 then "On time" then if > 0 then "Late".

then

(if {@datediff} < 5 then "Early" else

if {@datediff} = 0 then "On Time" else

if {@datediff} > 0 then "Late")

else if {SFC2.C2_NUM} = "DEF" then

(if {@datediff} < 3 then "Early" else

if {@datediff} = 0 then "On Time" else

if {@datediff} > 0 then "Late")

There are a couple of issues, as I see it from this formula. It might not be working because you have a condition that can be met by two different section.

@datediff = 3

if {@datediff} < 5 then "Early" else = True

if {@datediff} > 0 then "Late") = True

The other thing that might be throwing it off is the fact that you are switching up the columns. This has played havac in some of my reports.

Hope this helps.

The formula above works better but now this part doesn't work - if {@datediff} = 0 then "On Time" else.

Whats happening is it shows the < as Early and the > as Late but it doesn't show the = 0 as On time. (it show's them as early).

Phil.

then

(if {@datediff} = 0 then "On Time" else

if {@datediff} > 0 and {@datediff}<5 then "Early" else "Late")

else if {SFC2.C2_NUM} = "DEF" then

(If {@datediff} = 0 then "On Time" else

if {@datediff}>0 and {@datediff}<3 then "Early" else "Late")

Now this only takes numbers that are greater than 0. I would assume there is no negative numbers.

Early means the difference is negative? Or will late mean the difference is negative?

Remember 0 is < 5

if {CUSTOMER} = "ABC" then

if {@datediff} < -5 then "Early" else

if {@datediff} <= 0 then "On Time" else

if {@datediff} > 0 then "Late" else

if {SFC2.C2_NUM} = "DEF" then

if {@datediff} < -3 then "Early" else

if {@datediff} <= 0 then "On Time" else

if {@datediff} > 0 then "Late"
