Having a trouble with an IF statement.

if my price is 20
there pricecode is b - it should = 21
there pricecode is f - it should = 22

for some reason its always showing the $market value

when i echo $CustGroup->value it shows B00 like it should be, but its not adding 1.
$CustGroup = $rs2->Fields("Pricecode");
$market = $rs->Fields("market1");
 
if ($CustGroup->value =="B00") {
	$adjustedprice = (float)$market->value + 1;
	}
if ($CustGroup->value =="F00") {
	$adjustedprice = (float)$market->value + 2;
	}
else {
	$adjustedprice = (float)$market->value;
	}

try:
$CustGroup = $rs2->Fields("Pricecode");
$market = $rs->Fields("market1");
 
if ($CustGroup- =="B00") {
	$adjustedprice = (float)$market->value + 1;
	}
if ($CustGroup =="F00") {
	$adjustedprice = (float)$market->value + 2;
	}
else {
	$adjustedprice = (float)$market->value;
	}

just do a echo as shown and see what value is picked up from the variable.

If it is BOO then try by changing this like this

$adjustedprice = (float)($market->value + 1);
$market = $rs->Fields("market1");
echo $CustGroup->value;
if ($CustGroup->value =="B00") {
        $adjustedprice = (float)$market->value + 1;
        }
if ($CustGroup->value =="F00") {
        $adjustedprice = (float)$market->value + 2;
        }
else {
        $adjustedprice = (float)$market->value;
        }

Try changing your code to the following. It is a simple mistake as it is BOO the next condition gets into else always
if ($CustGroup->value =="B00") {
        $adjustedprice = (float)$market->value + 1;
        }
elseif ($CustGroup->value =="F00") {
        $adjustedprice = (float)$market->value + 2;
        }
else {
        $adjustedprice = (float)$market->value;
        }
